i can’t say that i completely understand, but i do get your point… i dont think you are being picky, especially if you went and looked up another more affordable outfit for them. and if i guess it ever came down to it, khol’s has great one piece things for guys… but im sure a more experienced bee will come along and help guide you alittle more in the right direction…

Based on that picture, I am confused – how could they rent this? It looks like a white shirt, black pants, and suspenders.

Why don’t you just ask them to wear a long sleeved white shirt & black pants? Asking for a white shirt & black pants is NOT to much to ask. And perhaps you can buy them the suspenders as their Groomsmen gift? What would your Fiance think about that?

Don’t forget it is your groom’s wedding day too… you want the day to be perfect. He wants the day to be perfect. But you apparently have two different ideas of what “perfect” means. Frankly I think it’s a bit silly on both of you to turn this into a quarrel; you have to work together to find some common ground, and for him that means a little more attention to detail while for you that means a little less attention to detail.

I love the idea AnnieAAA posted above— make the suspenders be their Groomsmen gift, and you can find suspenders pretty cheap if you look around. Make the trousers be something that everyone already has, like plain black trousers, and come to an agreement with your fiance (who knows his Groomsmen better than you do, and knows what he feels comfortable asking them to spend) on a shirt that looks nice and uniform like you want, is easily purchased either here or in Germany, and is within the right price range.
