    where is the wedding?

    why not wear something more summery to the wedding, try a khaki suit with a blue/white thin striped shirt and a bow tie.... definately learn how to tie your bowtie first, dont want to be a clip on loser...

    unless its a black tie event dont wear black.. set yourself apart from everyone else.

    you mite be able to find some nice khakis on summer sale right now, most stores are bringing in their fall line up.

    i understand that, but just saying he can pick something up really cheap if he wanted to... its an option.

    it depends on his intentions, if he wants to look good and get noticed (maybe take home a bridesmaid) he should set himself apart a bit.

    even if he goes with his black suit he should get a bow tie, IMO.

    more details would be great by the OP

    type of wedding, any dress code, ability to purchase accessories etc?

    i really don't get to wear a suit very often, so buying a new suit is out of the question. i could buy a new shirt and tie, but thats a bout it. my SO would shit a brick cause i tend to go a little overboard w/ my purchases. as for the wedding its just a simple wedding. actually its so simple probably only 60% of the men will be in a suit. as far as the black shirt, i tend to change it up a bit. i was just on an all black kick for a sec.

    one more thing, while i would rock a bow tie, i would stand out at this wedding for the wrong reasons. most of the people there would be more comfortable in a jeff gordon shirt, with a pabst blue ribbon in their hand.

    ....or you can respect that it's the bride and groom's day and not try to take attention away from them

    theres a difference between looking really sharp/good... and stealing their thunder.. stealing thunder would be wearing a fucking bright red pimpsuit or someshit.

    yea, for weddings I usually wear a bright colored shirt, pink/limegreen/baby blue. and a matching tie. usually a solid shirt with a diagonally striped tie. I've worn a grey/silver shirt with a shiny silver tie before too, but I think it only works because I was wearing a suit with light pinstripes.
