    Khaki isn’t really a winter color, and if you’re buying (not renting) suits, khaki is not that useful of a color (you can’t wear it in a conservative environment like a job interview or funeral). Gray does not clash with tan or brown. It’s very common for men to wear brown shoes with gray suits.

    I find matching vests and ties tacky. It’s very high school promish, and screams “rental!” Nobody dresses like that in real life. If you are going to mismatch the bridesmaids, why not do the same with the guys?

    Here would be my solution:

    • Men wear their own charcoal or medium gray suits
    • Groom wears a silver, gray, or black and white tie
    • Groomsmen are given mismatched ties in the wedding colors
    • Groomswoman wears a gray dress

    I agree with the mismatched medium gray suits and gray for the groomlady!

    A bit confusing but maybe have the GM/GW in a chocolate suit/dress instead of grey. And if you did chocolate suits for groom side, I wouldn’t have any BM in a chocolate dress…only tan or beige colors. Also consider a chocolate bolero for your girls to tie the look together even though their dreses are different.

    If you did grey, consider either a version like the first or second picture. But if you look closely you can see the guy in second pic actually has on different colored pants than the jacket…which might go well with your color scheme also. Good luck deciding.
