My concern would be the black. If its warm enough to need sunscreen its probably too warm to put the boys in black shirts on a boat. Dont dark colors absorb more heat?

I’m not really sure guys “do” matching outfits.

Okay, SapphireSun said it so I’ll chime in.  Everyone’s different… but if my fiance sent me and my boys on a little excursion and had us in matching outfits and hired a photographer to document it… it would be pretty emasculating. I think you’re better off getting your man some nautical themed hilariousness and leaving the poor groomsmen alone. I don’t mind having to wear something, but if my fellas were forced into wearing something they thought was stupid/cheesey, then I’d feel like a total whipped hubby because they’d all look at me with the, Do-We-Really-Have-To-Wear-This-Sh*t faces.  Most men don’t like playing dressup.  Especially coordinated dressup. This is why our bachelor parties are much less themed in terms of clothing. If your groomsmen went to the bachelor party in wigs and matching t-shirts with little wedding-themed sayings on them, then maybe they are the rare types of fellows who will enjoy being sent off in matchiness.

I don’t know—it sounds like you’re sending them on a cutesy photoshoot instead of actually providing them the gift of a fun man-day.  The most I’d do is get them a hat to protect their faces from the sun and maybe something fun/special for the fiance.

…to say nothing of the note to remember to apply sunscreen.
