- Wedding: September 2013 - Creek club at ion, SC
Need some bees help
My FI is six foot five guy, built with a ton of muscles like the hulk but not very wide with extremely long arms which were meant for a guy who is seven foot. He want to buy/rent a suit for the wedding and all his groomsmen are looking to rent theirs.
Fiding a suit that fits is a NIGHTMARE. We went to mens wearhouse who have a big and tall section but they said his arms are simply too long and his muscles make the shoulders not fit very well. Ive looked at destinationXL but I dont see much Also Als formalwear only has like six suits. Bespoke suits would make it hard for his groomsmen to get anything. AND he wants a suit not a tuxedo … im dying here.
Does anyone know of any good big and tall places? Even if they dont meet all the requirement maybe I could work something out with them … I dont know

It is totally fine for the groom to wear a different suit. After all, he is the GROOM!
The groomsmen can rent their suits and he can rent or buy a suit of his own. Would he prefer to rent or buy his suit? What color are you thinking? I think if all those basketball players can find suits, he will be able to also.
Several bees have used www. studiosuits.com to have a custom suit made at a very reasonable cost.

I agree, the groom can wear a different suit.
Nordstrom, JC Penney and King size direct all have big and tall sections. But you may have good luck also getting a custom suit made.

I would definitely suggest getting him a custom made suit. Then, he would have one that fits for other things too.

My fiance is 6’5″ with very wide shoulders… he’s too big for regular sizes (especially his arms are too long) but too small for big & tall (which makes him look like he’s a little kid wearing his dad’s clothes or something). So he’s having a custom tux made. It’s not going to match the groomsmen and we don’t see a problem with that.

@kerensa: +1000 When you have a man that is not of normal size you really need to invest in a custom made suit or tux because it needs to fit him properly. He should look his best this is his day too.
