I think it depends on the fabric.  If it’s a subtle stripe, it could be incredibly timeless and classy.  Pin stripes are verrrrry flattering on larger frames, since vertical lines have a slimming effect.  I am not a fan of a stripe that’s a stark constrast, but it could look really rich if done well.

Try it and see!

I’m with Mermaid on this – I think that if it’s a subtle stripe it could look quite nice!

My fiance suggested the same thing- how funny!  At first, I was unsure. The guys are wearing brown tuxes, but when he showed me the one with pin stripes (they are tiny grey stripes) I actually loved it! Here are some pics from the tux shop.  Hope you can see them.  Definitely try it on, and let the groomsmen try it on first before making any final decisions!

I agree, a subtle stripe for the GM might be the way to go. if you can convince your honey

I love pinstripes. My FH has a big frame & stripes look awesome on him. I especially love the brown suits with stripes, which I wanted since we are having a vintage theme wedding ( Miami/Havana) FH had  suit made in brown with light blue pin stripes & it looks awesome & is our wedding color – but too dark – so we are getting his brown tux at Men’s Warehouse.

Stripes look classy – and flattering on bigger guys.

I like a subtle pinstripe in a suit.  I believe, according to Clinton and Stacey on What Not to Wear, that pinstripes can be treated like a neutral fashion-wise.

My Fiance also wants to do the black pinstripe suit as well. I had second thoughts about it but i think in the end it will look great. Specially on him
