I want the groomsmen to wear khaki color suits for my casual backyard wedding. Besides Banana or JCrew, where are you all getting suits for your men? My one big problem, the groom and his 2 best men are abnormally tall and lanky (6’4 – 6’7). Their arms usually hang out of typical shirts, even Longs.
If anyone has any suggestions for a casual look that tall and short guys can fit in, please please please help!

I got a great deal at Jos. A Banks for my guys. The tan poplin suits are great, but a little darker than I wanted. They are/were running a deal for $99 per suit.

What about Dillards, Macys, or JC Pennys? They all run sales from time to time.

Like mattsonc, we used Jos. A Bank and they were great! They gave us a great deal since we were buying multiples suits, and shipped directly to the groomsmen’s homes or closest store (spread out among Boston, Seattle, Toronto and NYC!) so they could get alterations there. Definitely recommend going that route.

Jos. A Bank and Men’s Wearhouse frequently run really good sales, especially if you are buying multiple suits. They must be two of the biggest suit stores around, so I can’t imagine they wouldn’t have the sizes your guys need.

If you know any one in the Los Angeles area they could go to the garment district. There are many shops there that sell nice suits for $100. The have every color and almost every size.

Men’s Wearhouse has buy one get one free deals starting at $300 a suit. $150 a suit isn’t too shabby! I, too, was worried about lenght… FI is 6’10", his brother is 6’8" and his dad is 6’9". I called MW and their extra longs come un-hemmed at 57"inseam (FI wears 40"). I don’t remember what he said about the sleeves, but they were more than long enough.

Our guys are using Jim’s Formalwear (most bridal shops and tuxedo places can go through them). You can order khaki suits or rent khaki tuxedo’s (which is what we are doing). Good luck!

If you have access to an H&M with a men’s section, they have great suits for cheap!

Macy’s does not have a "big and tall" section in stores. I second Jennarationnext , we did the buy one get one at Mens Wearhouse. Please don’t try to put the guys in something that doesn’t fit them!! good luck and happy planning!
