I think that black would look gorgeous – very classy and sophisticated! I also think that a dark charcoal grey would work. I would stay away from lighter greys because they’ll start getting too close to the color of your bridesmaid dresses!

Definitely black. Any shade of grey would be too matchy matchy for me.

It’s kinda hard to tell what the actual color is. If it’s more greyish, I would go with grey. If it’s more brownish, what about tan?

@linnylou_88:  And here are Duncan’s unavoidable questions!  What time is your wedding?  In general, how formal is the wedding?

It looks grey in the photo, but if it’s more brown then tan if it is casual. I adore dark charcoal suits though, and think that would be better if more grey.

@linnylou_88:  I’d do Navy two piece suits. Maybe double breasted, or you could leave that up to each groomsman.  I pick navy because it’s the best fit if the most useful suit colours.  If a man has one suit, it should be navy.  It can be charcoal, but navy is better.

If you want to go outside the box, I might do a glen plaid/glen check (same thing, different names) which is classic, but a bit more interesting, and I think more suited to your motif than a stripe would be. I’d do a grey of sme kind with the glen check.

Because you’re looking for a pretty informal vibe, you could dosport coats and nice pants.  You could pick the colour of coat, and let the guys have fun with the pants.  This is a very informal look, but can be quite fun.

You could combine any of these ideas by having the groom in one and the groomsmen in the other.  Navy suits might be appreciated most by the wedding party. If they already wear suits often, they probably already have one.
