I need your help, Bees!!!
As opposed to black tuxes, my Fiance and his men want to wear dark grey suits. Problem is, suits are $400 and up!! We’re on a low budget and would like to buy/rent for under $200. Have any of you gone with dark grey suits as opposed to tuxes? We’ve looked at all the major retailers, as well as Jcrew, Gap, and Banana Republic. No luck. I really think that dark grey suits would look a lot nicer than black tuxes against our navy blue bridesmaid dresses, but we’re so discouraged by the insane prices!
Any help would be most appreciated!

Men’s Wearhouse has buy one get one for $100 sales from time to time. You could definitely get suits for about $150-200 each. That’s what we did (I had navy Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses and navy suits :). Plus they ship the suits and people can go get measured at the store closest to them or just send in their measurements.

Have you checked Express? We found ours there for a GREAT deal! They have really good coupons, and they have sales all the time!

Do you live where they have 3 day suit broker? We went there last weekend and got a suit for $199 before alterations. They have even cheaper ones and 2-for deals.
I would also recommend Express men and Kohls.

We took advantage of the Men’s Wearhouse suit sale. All of the suits were Buy 1, get the second for $100. The suit we wanted was on sale for $200, so we got 2 suits for $300 and the average cost for each suit was only $150! They were dark grey suits, too.

Have you checked the tux rentals, like what guys use for formals in high school and college? I know Savvy Formal Wear is a chain and they shouldn’t be too expensive to rent. Men’s Wearhouse rents, I believe. The gray suits sound really nice!

I’ve read that the Merona wool suits at Target are remarkably well made and modern for their price…Under $90:
Here’s a fella who bought one and had it tailored:
For $236 he bought the suit and got the thing tailored, bought shoes, a shirt, a tie, 3 pocket squares, socks, and a belt. Not too shabby. Worth a trip to Target. What’s great is that $90 suits with $80 worth of tailoring done to them will look much better than $350 suits pulled off the rack.
Also, Sears bought the Structure brand when Express Men was born. They have some modern three peice suits for under $200 you may want to look at. They’re pinstriped, though, and I have no idea about their quality:

Have you checked overstock.com? They have nice suits for as little as $70.

I just got gray suits for all of our guys at Macy’s. With discounts, it ended up being $135 each!!
We are going to get these vests/ties to go with them.
