You say his brother never dresses well. What about his father? Is he a potential ally?

Fortunately DH’s best man had a good sense of style so we went to the tux rental place with him, and picked the suits in one afternoon.

BTW FI is wrong about not telling them how to dress – that’s normally the case, but part of being a groomsman (or bridesmaid) is wearing what you’re told, within reason. He’s being silly about the germs too – hire places clean the suits each time, so they’re probably cleaner than something you’d buy.

Tell him to just stop being a dufus. You are probably not going to wear your dress again either, but that doesn’t stop you from looking  like a bride on your wedding day.Give him options ( just like you do for children) “Do you want to wear a rented suit, or would you like to wear a shirt, dress pants and vest that we purchase?”

I’m guessing he doesn’t often wear formal clothes and it’s making him feel uncomfortable and he’s blaming it on the clothes?  He’s refusing a tux, won’t buy a suit….does he just feel awkward, uncomfortable, not like himself?  I think I’d be extremely complimentary next time he tries something on, try to enlist the sales staff to help you flatter him, tell him how handsome and sharp he looks.

Also, how he does he feel about a custom shirt?  They aren’t ridiculously expensive and he can’t use the excuse that it doesn’t fit right!
