    I would do charcoal for a December wedding.

    I voted charcoal. The only time I ever see navy suits is on business men. Plus I personally think it looks weird to wear black shoes with a navy suit, and how many guys have a pair of brown or navy dress shoes lying around?

    @lil_possum:  If a man has only one suit, the best colours are, in order, navy blue, and charcoal grey.  Black shoes are the only formal option, period, regardless of the colour of the garments.  They are entirely correct with a navy suit, and look great as long as they’re polished.  Brown is the least formal colour of shoe.

    You should go with the custom suits from indochino. We TRIED to do this with our groosmen but it fell through because the ndochino consultant mixed things up. What I would suggest for you is to create a master account with them, create sub-accounts with the groomsmen and have indochino send everyone paypal invoices (broken up into payments) for the groomsmen. Not everyone may be able to shell out the $350 in one shot.

    I think charcoal would look much better and you could have the groomsmen get brown or mahogany (red/brownish) shoes + belt.

    Charcoal, all the way.  I love this look!  I’ve had it pinned to my Pinterest board for a while, but FI really wants to wear a tux.
