    Brown/Chocolate Wedding Suit

    Hey there everyone! Just was curious if I could pick y'alls brain on ideas for a brown wedding suit. I wanted to break away from the Black/Blue color and pick black. I liked the idea of a 40/50's classic brown look. Any thoughts or suggestions for where I can find a winner?

    Some inspiration was this color that Danny Amendola wore here: https://www.gq.com/story/new-england...17-espy-awards

    Also thought about having my brothers wear a lighter shade of brown as groomsmen. Similar to: https://factory.jcrew.com/p/mens-clo...me=brown-camel

    Thanks for any and all feedback!

    I like that suit a lot. It looks great. In my mind, the second suit you linked for the groomsmen seems to be very light compared to the first one. I’m not sure that much contrast would look good.

    Is this a summer, fall or winter wedding? That darker brown suit that Amendola wore looks amazing, but really would be more appropriate for a Fall/Winter wedding.

    I agree with Seth, that the colour contrast between the first and second suits would probably be a bit much.

    If it is a summer wedding, that second suit colour might be most appropriate for you. Alternatively, you could look for a darker shade of brown, but in a linen or wool/linen blended suit. That'll make it look more seasonally appropriate, while also keeping you cooler through the day.

    Thank you both for the quick responses and suggestions. It will be a evening wedding in the May here in Texas. So yes it will be warm! So I will definitely be thankful having something that's a bit more breathable.

    Sorry to keep asking, but any thoughts on these colors/suits?

    Here is an option that won’t break the bank and can work in the heat:

    I just noticed there is a mid brown unsuit included in jcrews sale right now. Unlined cotton. A very casual suit if that is what you are leaning towards and only $220 right now

    If that's the oatmeal color it's not brown. Far more green on the spectrum, and pretty light. I was disappointed and returned it.

    I'm guessing this is the suit yall are referencing. I do like the color! Thinking about ordering to see how the color looks in person.
