    We are going with that same VW tux, so I am biased towards it :). Both places seem to have their pros/cons, so I would go with cost being the deciding factor.

    I gave my groomsmen the following instructions:

    Medium Grey suit.
    Preferably single-breasted.
    One or two button, not three or more.
    Lapels – peaks and notches both ok.
    Pants – flat fronts (though that’s all you can buy right now anyway)
    Three piece preferred.

    In the end, it looked fantastic.  Pics coming soon, all those that keep asking.

    I would recommend, however, saying charcoal, as, if it’s going to end up being a guy’s only suit, charcoal is the best colour to own – appropriate at weddings, funerals, and anything else.  This way everyone’s in a suit that fits, that he likes, which will make him comfortable and confident which WILL come through in the pictures.  One guy spent $200, one spent $400, and one spent $800.  Looked great next to each other.

    I bought them each a grey on grey tie.  I found about 15 ties that were in my budget, and that I liked, then let the guys choose one they wanted – they each wore a different tie.

    White shirts, black shoes, and I bought everyone a hand rolled linen pocket square.  Everyone looked sharp, and now has a nice new suit.  Wins all around.

    Because everyone is dressing to a dress code that I created, it gives a formal look (formal actually means dressing similarly – the lower you go in traditional levels of formality, the more allowance there is to do your own thing) but without putting guys in clothes they’re not comfortable with.

    not familiar with the others, but we are doing the Vera wang (from menswearhouse) and it is a really nice and super comfortable tux.  You can usually find coupons from there too and the groom gets a free rental or suit to keep

    I like suits instead of tuxes since it’s casual.
