Overall the look is good, vest and cravat and jacket look good together. However I do agree with your mum about the pants, even before I read that comment I saw the pic and went hmm they look like skinny jeans. If you both like the look then that is ok but TO ME suit pants don’t sit like that so it looks odd (TO ME). Because of the skinniness of the jeans it brings a lot of attention to the shoes too – I am guessing with statement shoes you would want that but personally I like when my attention goes to vest/tie/jacket then the deliriously happy grin that every groom has on his face on the day.

Anyway just my opinion – some random online, if you guys like it then don’t worry what anyone else says ๐Ÿ™‚

the shoes get a no from me – it may be my lack of fashion forward sense but i first thought he was wearing socks and its not something i would want to see in my photos years down the track.  if they were all black they would at be stylish

Personally I hate wide trousers, no man looks good in (basically) parachute pants. I like the skinny pants but they are either a tad too skinny or not working with those particular shoes. It may also be that the pants are currently too long, they should end just at the shoe. I’m being lazy so just click on the link below, the guy on the far right is wearing his trousers at just the right length!

I too thought the pants looked a little more fitted than my (or my DH’s) style.  However, lots of guys really like that style and lots of girls like that style on guys.  So, that’s your call ๐Ÿ™‚

Maybe you can tie the kravat so the knot isn’t so giant. It’s kind of overwhelming.

I love it, except I agree with PP about the pants…something funny there…almost like his pants shrunk lol?  I personally LOVE the shoes, Fiance wouldn’t be caught dead in them, but I think they are great…with different pants.

Suit/tux pants don’t have to be baggy or sack like, a fitted trouser is super sexy, I just thing these ones on your Fiance are a bit TOO fitted!  But i think overall, it’s a great, fresh look!

I love cool, funky shoes, but I would pass for this occasion.

It really takes away from him, IMO.

@BigFatGreekWedding:  I sort of like the trousers. I would have them hemmed to almost no break as someone mentioned above. I think on their own they aren’t too skinny for him. They might simply be too skinny for the proportion of everything else that’s going up top: big cravat, large shirt collar, waistcoat…  I bet this suit looks 100% better when he buttons the top button of the dinner jacket, shortens the sleeves, and maybe takes the sides in. But the jacket needs to always be buttoned, I’m guessing, if you don’t want the pants to look out of proportion with everything up top. The swatch of bright waistcoat popping out of the jacket makes everything look so broad up top in these pictures, making the pants look disproportionately skinny. So yeah, double check it with the jacket buttoned and see if that’s what you like. Then tell him to keep it buttoned. 

Or plan B: just get less skinny pants ๐Ÿ™‚

And those shoes and cufflinks make me happy. I want those cufflinks right now.

I think he looks pretty snazzy ๐Ÿ™‚  And I personally like suits that fit a little slimmer so I’m all for the pants.  The only thing about the shoes is that the reddish color doesn’t seem quite the same as the scrunchy tie thing and the vest but I don’t think it looks bad.  I’m glad you have a guy that’s willing to be a snappy dresser.  I’m sure my SO would wear flip flops and cargo shorts if I let him when the day comes lol
