So trying to figure out what the men will wear. My fiance is going to wear a tux that has gray pants, gray vest, gray tie and a long black coat, it looks pretty sweet. But he wants his groomsmen not to have to rent or buy much so he wants them to wear navy blue blazers, since they all have them, however his mom thinks the khaki color looks to casual, especially when he’s looking pretty sweet. So would gray pants work with a navy blazer? Is this going to look terrible? The bridesmaids are in a gray blue dress so we were thinking about matching their ties to their dresses. Anyone have pictures?

Hmm…maybe a blue-ish seersucker pant? To complement both the gray and the blue?

Like a dark gray trouser? I think that would be fine, or you could try black (most people have a good pair of black). I would see it in person though because sometimes it works and sometimes it looks like you didn’t realize one was navy and the other black.

Honestly? My vote would be khakis. They really don’t look that casual once they have the tie and boutionniere on. If they had unbuttoned white shirts underneath the blazer, then I could see how that would look casual.
I think that black pants would just look mismatched and grey would look odd (being two dark neutrals).
Just ask your guys to get really nice, modern khakis, sans pleats (Express Men has some awesome ones). They’ll be able to wear those again and again, and add a blue/grey tie into the mix, and they’ll look super sharp!

I don’t think khaki is too casual at all. go for it.

I don’t think khaki is too casual either and I can’t really think of something else that would look good. I love the khaki/navy blue blazer look. They just need to wear ties, etc. to look less casual.

I think grey would look nice and match the groom’s suit nicely.

I think you could do grey. And with grey/blue bridesmaid dresses, it’ll look great.

I’m all for the navy suit with grey pants. Sometimes black works, but you just have to see how it looks together.
Khaki would work if they are very nice khaki pants (not the cargo kind) and ironed well, to look nice and crisp. The only thing with khaki, also for grey, is that they might have different shades of the color and it could look a bit off. Different shades of grey would probably look better than different shades of khaki pant.
