We’re having a fall wedding with the bridesmaid dresses being a latte / mocha color. We’re having a tough time deciding on tuxs for the guys because the color. I do not want tan and I do not want black. We’ve been looking at brown but there’s not much selection. Some of the brown suits we’ve seen were a little too milk chocolate brown! This Calvin Klein Infinity one looks super nice but there are no stores around here that have it for us to see in person. Did anyone use this tux or know someone who did for their their weddings and do you have any input on it?
Here’s a pic. Scroll down:

that tux looks a lot like the chocolate brown tux that we are using from mens wearhouse

The guys in my wedding wore this tux from Men’s Warehouse which looks very similiar to the Calvin Klein.
This is one of the decisions I second guessed all the way up until my wedding and they ended up looking great. I was very happy with the way they turned out.
There is a small tux shop in the area and my brother used those Calvin Klein tuxes for his wedding. I was so mad because when Darling Husband said he wanted brown tuxes my brother and SIL told us how ugly they were, only to order them a week before their wedding. O well, I’m over it 🙂
But the difference between the two tuxes is that the Calvin Klein is a much heavier material. Also my father is on the larger side and the Calvin Klein was a much harder fit if you have heavier guys.

That CK one is the exact ones our groomsmen will be in. My Fiance tried it on and it looked nice! 🙂
I have a pic of him in it but its a crappy cell phone pic.

Thanks girls!! @dixie1337- where did he try it on? I wonder if I looked harder I can find it. Are the pinstripes really obvious or more subtle and is more on the dark brown side than a lighter brown?
@roxie821- that’s kind of funny that your brother and SIL copied you! It must have looked good! I would have been annoyed too though!

I would go with the chocolate parisian one from jim’s formal. That’s the one we used. It’s more of a brown color. I had looked at the CK one with the pinstripes but it is too dark of a brown. I actually have a few family members who used that tux in their weddings and it looks almost black in all of the photographs.
I’m glad we went with the chocolate parisian one. It looks brown in photographs and it doesn’t have the stupid pinstripes!

I googled the Jim’s Formal one and it looks exactly like the mens wearhouse one–pin stripes and all. I don’t know what amariem25 is talking about. We ordered the brown mens wearhouse ones and our wedding is in 2 weeks. I love them. They look great–and are something different than the normal black (my bridesmaids dresses are also mocha). They are a dark brown and the pin stripes are there but they didn’t stand out to me (they are the same color just a more sheen stripe)
