Dark navy / midnight is the best - look less like a waiter


I had groomsmen wear black and I wore navy. Went over well.


Did the same. Turned out really well

Blue sounds nice .. any pics?


I did midnight blue with black lapels. I got it bespoke but asked my groomsmen to wear any style black tux with bow tie and cummerbund. That way they could rent or choose to buy if they’d been eyeing one (and offset the cost).

I always hated being asked to rent a tux as a groomsmen that fit worse than my own and cost an arm and a leg when that’s why I bought one in the first place (to avoid renting for weddings etc).


my husband did navy blue tux with black lapels, black bowtie. his groomsmen wore navy suits (they were able to choose their own), black shoes, and we gifted them black ties. it looked great and his guys appreciated
that they could choose a suit that fit them well.


Black tux 💯

Are you just wearing a tux? Or the whole wedding party? Or the whole wedding? Basically, if you’re planning to have your groomsmen also wear tuxes, it might be annoying for them to find anything but a black one


I think it’s very American to wear tuxes for weddings ... it’s an evening attire only, so tux during the day is a big faux pas.

Midnight navy, less funereal.

Black tux. Midnight blue also ok. Thx

Hey everyone. I had a conversation with a friend of me about what is the better approach:
Click apply on LinkedIn without even reading the job description.
Read the job descriptions and detailsod the work before applying before applying.
The first approach is not time consuming maybe you have to apply to 100 where 1 might be suitable.
The second approach requires you to read 100 job descriptions where you apply to 10 and 1 will be suitable.
What are your thoughts?


What’s the policy on the bonus? It’s coming September 30th, but if you put your two weeks in prior, will you still receive it?

Time to give back:
Asked about Alan David vs Michael Andrews vs Enzo Custom a while back. Went to consultations and ordered one full suite and one casual separate pairs.
Alan David: traditional, no BS, very professional 10/10
Michael Andrews: slightly less value for money, same fabrics, outsourced bespoke, light BS due to flashy showroom 8/10
Enzo Custom: stylish and fashion-forward, good value, in-between M2M and bespoke, flashy in a good way 9/10
(Subjective and based on personal experience.)
