(Closed) Blue suits, No ties…

  • poll: What do you think of this look?

    I love it and am having something similar

    I like this look but not for a wedding: it's too casual

    It would look great at a relaxed/informal wedding

    I don't like it, it looks sloppy

    Why do you care what we think? If you like it, go for it

    I'm indifferent

    Mmmm....Jesse Metcalfe....

    I like the blue suit but not with the unbuttoned white shirt – (to me) it reads like he was at work all day, took off his tie and is ready to go clubbing. 

    How about a patterned shirt? Since it is a casual wedding, I would also go with a shirt and suit with less shine. Love the color of the blue suit with the shoes – pocket square is also a nice touch.

    What about navy blazers?

    It would look great, but is not forgiving of any pudge. A tie provides a straight line in front of the belly  to focus on rather than the belly itself. It looks great on the type of person everything looks good on. An alternative for a more casual look that could be slimming for anyone with an average body wold be having a buttoned blazer that draws in the waistline like

    This but in blue.

    Or maybe something relaxed but charming like

    Love it but for the love of god make the guys wear black shoes. I cannot stand those brown shoes with the blue suit – ick!!

    I like it as long as the suits are fitted. (And just for the record, pp, I think the brown shoes look awesome with it!) Though, I might like for the groom to wear a tie so he’s more distinguishable from the GMs

    jelly3:  I like all these ideas and I’m team brown shoes too (brown/tan shoes for blue suits, black shoes for grey suits is my rule; I personally hate black shoes with blue unless you’re talking a midnight blue suit or tux). If you’re going no tie, slim suit for a slim man is the way to go. Otherwise, a blazer is a great suggestion and seems more appropriate for the casual vibe you’re going for. To me, adifferent color/fabirc pant and jacket is a better signal of casualness than leaving out an accessory item like a tie. But I’m also very pro tie because they are an easy way to add color/interest to an outfit and can easily be dressed down by choosing a more casual fabric (cotton, linen, or something matte with texture) or print (plaid, flowers).

    SellyJo:  I really like the look. Especially if they bottom the shirt up.
