      My first question would be why black? Outdoors in August in black sounds awful. Plus, many people prefer not to wear black unless it's a funeral or very formal event, so you may be limiting the re-wear possibilities of the suit for you and them. Light gray, medium gray, blue, or navy would be options to think about at least.

        The colores we have chosen are black red and white. We went SDSU, which were the school colors and we are already committed to that color scheme. We will be wearing red ties, pocket squares, and white boutonnieres.

          And second, is it possible to get a nice suit for under $200? I will probably have to at least supplement the cost of the suits for my groomsmen, so I have to stay on budget. I'm not including the shirt, tie, etc. Under $200 for jacket and pants. Can anyone point me in the right direction? I saw a Kenneth Cole Reaction suit for $169 at Macy's today that looked nice, but I don't own a suit, and have no idea what I'm looking for. I know I like slim fits, but one of my groomsman is pushing 300lbs.
          I black tux may be useful to you if you have events to wear it to (I personally am not living a lifestyle at the moment where I have any opportunity to wear a tux). A black suit is not as useful as a navy or grey suit down the line, but it sounds like there is no changing this now.

          I would say that under $200 there is no such thing as a "nice suit", unless you score an amazing deal on an end-of-season suit that's been marked down substancially. This is not something you can cound on finding, either in your size, never mind for yourself and all your groomsmen. I would just go for whatever black suit fits you and your groomsmen and meets your budget any not worry about quality, since at that pricepoint they are probably not all that different.

            You might want to consider charcoal. It often reads as black and would be more useful afterwards for job interviews, etc.

              is combatant gentleman no longer a good source for a cheap, quality suit?

                [MENTION=17589]darwin503[/MENTION] here's the latest as far as Joe is concerned: https://dappered.com/2017/09/has-com...t-of-business/

                Personally, I'd avoid them.

                  Most would argue that combat gent was never a good source for a cheap, quality suit.

                    I agree with charcoal being more useful for future use while still coming close to black for the purpose he said. I also think at under $200 if you can't find a great deal you should at least hold each groomsmens hand to get it tailored so the fit is on point. A well fitting suit can always cover up cheaper fabric I think.

                      I want to buy this dress for my wife, who is a size 16 and I need help on how 'one size' works? Her size is quite common and easy to find so will this fit her? I want to surprise her so I don't want to ask her just yet. Any help is useful.

                        Need some new spring bars for my Mako XL. Any suggestions on where to get a good pair? Got a pair from a mall kiosk a while back and they were trash. Wondering if Amazon would be the same sub par quality

                        Thanks!

                          Have you tried Orient’s website? If they are not listed on the site, it might be worth reaching out to their customer service team.

                            The Orient spring bars also seem to be a bit flimsy. Shortly after buying the watch, the original spring bar snapped at a Panthers game while I was cheering and my watch flew two rows down. Luckily it hit someone and not the ground, lol

                              I went to a local jeweler and got 'em swapped out last time mine gave out. I have a Ray (the old version with the pusher) and the jeweler told me a really robust spring bar won't fit in the hole drilled out of the lugs. The key is getting the right length, if it's a millimeter too long or too short you're in trouble and Orient can use funky lengths.

                                Hey what's up everybody. Does anyone have any thoughts about buying this https://www.ebay.com/itm/Samuelsohn-...sAAOSwLgNaZRLO for my second sport coat? I already have a navy single-breasted wool one.
