    Hmmm… this is difficult… I personally dont wear navy with black.. but that may just be me, so I dont know how that looks. As for the suits/tux.  I think you could get away with just renting jackets for the guys.  Most black suit pants, if they are the same material, will look pretty similar as long as they are not faded.  You may want to collect them all and see.  They just rent jackets so they will match up top.  I dont think people will he analyzing them.  You can also just ask the Groomsmen what they would rather do.  If asked they may not mind renting….

    We are doing the same thing you questioned for our May wedding…  My Fiance and my son (who is walking me down the aisle) are renting black tuxes with champange "insides" ie vest, tie, etc.. and our 5 groomsmen will be wearing black suits that they own and renting the "insides" in a royal blue pattern.  When we went to the tailor shop we asked if this would work and the guy working there said he didnt see any "issues" with it as long as we dont want the 100% uniformed look, which we are okay without having.  I mean the worst case would be that one groomsmen as 3 buttons and the other 2.. but for us thats a simple feature we can look over in order to save our bridal party a few hundred dollars.

    One thing though.. you did say navy was the contrast color.  I do remember him saying that navy next to the black suits may make the ties, etc look worn or visa versa depending on which in more vibrant.

    Hope This Helps….
