Sharp Dressed Man

While I was out of town this past weekend Kristian and one of his groomsmen went to get fitted for their tuxes. Kristian and I had gone to Men's Warehouse back in February to pick out what all the boys would wear and then we told everyone would have to come in by April 20th to get fitted and pay their deposits.

We decided to rent the tuxes from Men's Warehouse for a few reasons-

1. There is one right up the street from where we live
2. There are locations all over the country and you can go into any of them to get fitted and place your order. You don't have to go to the store the groom signed up at.
3. Because of the number of rentals K's tux is free (finally something free in this wedding!)
4. They had a pretty decent selection

The only thing that I was disappointed about when we went to pick out the tuxes was that they didn't have any for K to actually try on. I was hoping for a tuxedo fashion show but all we could do is look through their catalog to pick what we wanted and see swatches of the material for the vests/ties.

Ultimately this wasn't a huge deal since both K and I pretty much knew and agreed on what the boys should wear. We decided on black tuxes with a 3 button jacket. Kristian will have a light silver vest and tie and the rest of the guys will have black vests and ties. Initially Kristian wanted a bow tie but personally I hate bow ties. I think they only look good on older men or if you are going to a really fancy schmancy black tie event at the White House. So that idea got vetoed pretty quick.

Here are pictures of more or less what the boys will be wearing at the wedding.

I can't wait to see Kristian in his tux, I know he will look super hot. Yesterday he texted me a picture of himself wearing a suit before his job interview and it just made me even more excited to see him all dressed up on the wedding day. My baby cleans up well!

Great choices! We went with Men’s Wearhouse, too. The process is simple for everyone, no matter where they live, and we also got Stephen’s tux for free.

What is it with boys and bow ties? My fiance wanted a bow tie too. I also vetoed that decision!

Aw, this makes me so sad because my boyfriend has already firmly put his foot down about getting dressed up for our future nuptials. :-( Last weekend, he said he would get dressed up for the ceremony, but he wants to wear SHORTS to the reception. Boo. Adding insult to injury, he wore a tux for one of his best friend's wedding all night.

Kristian's tux looks so nice! I like the silver a lot.

Yea. I agree, bowties are for cute old men. Or chuck bass from gossip girl. Ha!

Men in tuxes always look good. K will look especially fly.
