Are you determined to buy them? My FI’s sister got married this summer, and they all rented them from Men’s Wearhouse.  You could rent something like this: http://www.menswearhouse.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay_10051_10002_10601_130951_-1_10002_Base_10651_?cm_vc=40168.  I’m sure you could do just vests/pants and work it out with the store.

EDIT:  I should note that they wore grey suits, that’s what made me think of it 🙂

You still have time to wait, Express constantly has sale. What kidn of fit are the guys though? Express tends to run very slim fit.

Banana Republic also has tons of grey suits often.

Im doing grey suits as well, My groomsmen are wearing just pants and vests (and shirts duh) but we got ours from J.Crew. the vests and pants is 180 but there is a student/teacher discount as well. Its called faded black but it looks completely grey in person.

I absolutely love it in person. and you can purchase everything separately which is always a bonus.

Its not khaki in person. The pants came like 2 days after we ordered it and it is totally grey I dont know why it is called faded black. It looks grey with really subtle stripes because its “faded” but it looks perfectly light grey for my wedding which is the look I wanted. and the discounts definitely help.

If there is another Men’s Warehouse location near you, I’d try again (or maybe talk to another person if there isn’t).  We’re doing the tux that NauticalBride linked, and it was $160-ish for everything down to cufflinks (although we are providing shoes and ties), and they have a $30 off promotion they’re running if they guys sign up for a free “Perfect Fit” rewards-type program.  I was told it’s the only grey suit that Men’s Wearhouse currently has for rental, and I made sure the pants were flat-front (pleats = yuck! heehee!), so one of us was lied to!  =)  They also told me that we could rent what we wanted, and the price went down for each item we didn’t get.  I suppose the policies might vary by store/location, but we seem to have had exact opposite experiences!  Maybe if you told them what other locations are offering they’d be willing to work with you a bit?  Worth a try anyway…  Good luck!!!

My husband got his from H&M.  Their suits are pretty affordable; I know we got him another one from there that was $100 Cdn for the jacket and pants.  But you would have to go to one of their bigger stores, as the smaller ones don’t often have good suiting choices!

We got the Alfani Red from Macy’s just a few weeks ago.  All total, I think it was just under $150 for the suit pants and vest.  Looks great, too!

Hi Cleverbetty!

I’m actually looking for the same thing, only in a khaki color rather than light grey. I’m trying to avoid the pleated pants and shiny vest look you get when renting. From what i’ve seen, the best bet would be to try H&M. J.Crew is nice but H&M would be more affordable. Most of the vest/pants I’ve seen have come from there. That’s where I plan to have the men go in a month or so.

I just wanted to add a little P.S. to my post- I saw the suits from Men’s Wearhouse that I’m getting (that NauticalBride linked) modeled at a bridal show this weekend, and they are gorgeous! A thousand times better than the photos.  =)
