    I think 4 definitely looks the best. It looks clean and modern and sharp.

    I’m a sucker for a three-piece suit…my husband insisted on being married in one. So I actually really do like the first suit the best. Additionally (and this may just be my computer), I like the richer, darker grey of the first one too — you definitely have two different color options there. Have you decided on a color palette yet? What flowers might be going on or near that suit?

    I really like the look of the suit with the vest, my personal favorite is #2.

    Anything but 4 in my opinion, just not fancy enough. The 3 piece look would look best for me (i voted number 2)

    @subjunctivitis:  I empathize on the whole suit craziness, believe me. My husband had his close female friends on his side as well, so we ended up trying to match color, pinstripe, proper size, and non-wool (one is a vegan). I thought I was going to go nuts, but everyone looks marvelous in the pictures. And we (no kidding) got our men’s suits at JCPenney.

    Perhaps you have already tried Express and discarded them? They have a three piece suit in a dark gray that might give you an additional option.

    Have you tried Mayc’s? I know it seems like the first place I think of for suits but they have seperates that make up a 3 piece – http://www1.macys.com/shop/product/alfani-red-suit-separates-grey-solid-slim-fit?ID=301933&CategoryID=17788&LinkType=PDPZ1 And if you are looking to stay under $1500, you will have no problem getting one there. Since you only need Fiance, I would suggest going into the store and seeing what they have in the Clerance racks hanging around from spring. My dad grabbed a 3 piece Ralph Lauren for under $200 from there  but it was the last one and happened to be the right size. It pays to look and try on. Order what you can online and then go intot he store to return and check out the sales. Honestly, you don’T have so much time so I would place an order first, let Fiance try on at home then head into the store to see if there is something better/return the rest and set up an alterations appointment to have the pants finished as most men’s suit pants don’t have a hem.

    Now I’m hooked, this is not a 3 piece but it’S lt. grey and cotton if your Groomsmen are looking for something summery, 2 pieces end up costing about $110! They have a decent size selection and Kenneth Cole makes me think it’s good quality. http://www1.macys.com/shop/product/kenneth-cole-suit-separates-grey-pincord-cotton-slim-fit?ID=652996&CategoryID=19582&LinkType=#fn=SPECIAL_OFFERS%3DClearance/Closeout%26sp%3D1%26spc%3D45%26ruleId%3D66%26slotId%3D23

    @slicey19:  FH is wearing the first suit that you posted and it looks amazing! The vest is really nice, and during a sale everything was under $300 total.
