I’m doing a beach wedding also… my opinion on the brown is that it would be too harsh against the background… Navy would be nice, and a slate tan, almost a tan stone color with a cotton blend is nice… My FH picked one from banana republic and loves it… it looks super good on him and no one would ever know it was a linen blend- without all the linen link wrinkles.

Here’s a brown I’ve seen in person that isn’t all that ick

My FH’s looks almost like this one in the stone color- it is a VERY light khaki color and looks like a normal wool suit.

These were some other options, but we decided against them for various reasons:

Something like this one

hey, brown tux/ suit wedding here! my dress is champagne, the girls are wearing a medium/bright blue, and the guys are wearing brown tuxes with blue shirts/ blue ties. Fiance is wearing brown tux w ivory shirt & gold/ ivory tie. we found 2 brown tuxes at the same place & nearly had a heart attack about it. we’re on the east coast tho. if your dress is ivory i found that (at least w my champagne/ dark ivory dress) that grey & taupe clash w the dress. lgrey looked much better with white. look around for brown, it wont be at your local mens warehouse/ after hours but a decent tux place will probably have one. call around!

ps i cant see your pics but here are the tuxes we looked at. neither has the traditional "tux stripe" down the legs so they look more casual- like a suit!

I think navy always looks great or grey. You can also do navy jacket and khaki color pants + tie.
