Sooo my fiance wants his groomsmen to wear suspenders with either khaki or gray dress pants and white shirt (see pic below)…. I said since he doesn’t want to do a tux, he should just tell his groomsman to get a pair of khaki or gray pants, suspenders and white shirt and they wouldn’t have to worry about renting a tux. My bridesmaids will be wearing coral dresses, but will each have a different style, so I’m not too concerned with having exact matches with regards to color of grooms pants, as long as their similar. HOWEVER, my fiance thinks that that will be too much work for them and he just wants them to be able to go to a tux shop and get exactly what they need without having to shop (which does make sense). We have yet to go to any shops, but from what I’ve seen, as far as rentals are concerned, you’re only able to rent actual tuxes. Anyone have any insight. We’ll be going to some tux shops here next month, so I just want to know what to expect. The pic below is the look he’s going for —

There are some shops that rent suits or just blazers.
The Black Tux rents charcoal, navy and grey suits.
If you like the suspender and pants look, you could get the measurements of all the guys, do the research,order and buy the pants and suspenders yourself. They can get any necessary alterations done and buy their own white shirt.
If you have the merasurements, you can take advantage of great sale prices at places like Burlington Coat Fctory.

We’re doing the same look (those photos were also our inspiration photos ) and they just went to Moore’s, figured out what colour to get, and the guys ordered the pants plus are picking up a white shirt. I believe you can also rent things. Maybe Che k out a suit store?

We are doing this too! I picked out the pants, suspenders, and bowties and just gave the groomsmen the link to purchase all of them. No “shopping” on their part required!

Tell them grey pants and a white shirt then buy them the suspenders. If they don’t have a pair of grey pants, and a white shirt, they need them. Those are first pants and shirt to have in one’s closet.
