Hello all! I am experiencing my first wedding crisis! My groom and I have decided that in lieu of renting tuxes, we are going to buy him and his groomsmen suits. We are looking for a medium to light gray. Where we are running into issue is prices and sizes. We would really like to spend less than 200 on the suit, and he has a groomsman that is a 50L jacket. I need all of my thrifty bees out there to help me and give me advice!

I don’t know about sizes…but K&G (I think it’s a national chain?) had suits that were like 2 for $225. They had a few different grays as well if I remember correctly. We haven’t bought them yet- but that is our plan as well.

Hey there, you should probably check out men’s wearhouse if you havent already, my Fiance was a groomsmen for his best friends wedding and they had to buy their grey suits from there. I believe it was $210. Good luck!

Men’s Wearhouse has great sales. We bought my FI’s suit there in a black friday sale, but if you get on their email list, they have sales all the time!

Oh girl, we had the same problem! All the guys were fairly “normal sized” but we had one groomsmen who was a 52 Anyway, we looked at Jos. A. Bank and got all of the suits for $197 with shipping! They had a bunch at Macy’s and Belk, too, but Fiance wanted plain front pants and not pleated, which they didn’t have in everyone’s size. This is the one that we got:
in black and white…it looks like it’s a very faint check really close up, but far away, it looks solid.
They have it in sizes up to 52
Right now, they are having a buy 1, get 2 free. Since you have some time, sign up for their email list and keep updated on their sales.
At Macy’s, this one is super cheap $350 with 60% off=140
Good luck! 🙂

Same issue! Wanted charcoal grey suits for the guys. Found gorgeous ones for $99 at Van Heusen until we had to fit the 52 guy. They only made them to 47. We ordered them custom from makeyourownjeans.com after another Bee referred me. They are coming in this week. Excited to see them!
And By The Way they ended up being $109.99 a suit. 🙂

I am so bummed I didn’t see this sooner. Our guys are are wearing just vests and pants and Fiance is wearing all three pieces, but Macy’s just had a HUGE sale on suits that ended yesterday.
Check out the ALFANI Red collection. It’s great quality wool suits -come in dark and light gray. (Our groomsmen like it so much that they are buying the jackets so they can wear them to work after the wedding). They always have some sort of sale on them and you can also subscribe to Macy’s emails and get the 10% off coupons. If you time it right, you can get a great deal (FI got all three pieces for $230 this weekend).
