I need help finding suit separates for my big and tall groom. I want all the guys in grey pants and vests–charcoal for my groom, light gray for the groomsmen. My fiance is a big guy–he wears a 4-5xl tall. Men’s Wearhouse didn’t have his size in the charcoal gray vest.
I don’t know where I can find matching pants and vest for him! How is this so difficult?! I thought for sure Men’s Wearhouse would have charcoal gray vests that we could get in his size.
Any ideas? My wedding is in August so I’d like to try to get something purchased/ordered soon to give time for alterations or for things to be specially ordered.

Darling Husband is a bigger guy (generally like a 3x) and we had to go through a privately owned tux shop. We tried MW but they didn’t have his size in the color we wanted (chocolate brown). I would suggest going the private route. Your experience will be much more personal and they’ll work with you to get exactly what you want. Most reputable places have relationships with the factories where they order their rentals from so they’ll be willing to help you much more than somewhere like MW. We actually had to special order a full back vest for Darling Husband since their biggest size didn’t fit him. He HATES the vests that just clip in the back and refused to have one of those so we went the custom route. We were told that our best shot at getting the vest was to order it in ivory which wasn’t an issue for us since that’s what we wanted anyway.
I would call around to privately owned tux shops and explain your situation. In my experience, they really will try to help you in any way they can. Good luck!
