I have already decided that I want Mr. Kat in a vest, but no jacket, for our ceremony (shirt, tie, and trousers, too--of course!). We have been looking exhaustively, and I think that the J. Crew year round suit is our favorite. Our issue? Mr. Kat likes pinstripe and plain equally. He asked me to turn to all of you for opinions. So, which do you like better: Plain (which we would do in heather coal) or Pinstripe (which we would likely do in charcoal).

In case any of this matters, we haven''t picked out his tie yet, but it will probably be printed and go with my shoes (which are cobalt), and he will wear a white shirt. My dress is ivory.

Here is the plain suit:

I would normally vote plain, but i really like the pinstripe suit, particularly with the splash of color in the tie like you mentioned - it just looks fun!

I like the pinstripe as well. It seems dressier to me for some reason (perhaps because it''s not as common?) The plain vest and pants could almost double as a waiter''s outfit and just doesn''t seem as "special occasion" to me.

Oh I LOVE the pinstripe option.

My fiance wants an outfit with an edge for our wedding in August and we were thinking about a fitted pinstripe suit. I love the waistcoat though, could be a great alternative to the jacket option we thought about.

Go pinstripe!

I usually love pin stripes, but for the occasion and considering the cobalt tie, I voted for plain.

Normally I''m a pinstripe girl but for some reason I prefer the plain out of the two of them. It just seems like there''s a bit too much pinstripe in the trousers and the waistcoat.

Loving the pinstripe ... especially since there will be no jacket.
I think that it spices it up a bit. Mr. Kat wants to be a little spicy, doesn''t he?

I voted plain. The pin stripe is striking me as a bit Great Gatsby meets the Mafia.

Dont'' get me wrong, I love me a pin stripe suit, but in this case and for this occassion, I''m just not feeling it.

I''m liking the pinstripe better for a no jacket look.

I voted plain because for some reason pinstripe reminded me too much of a banker''s suit -- but I see I am outvoted. Anyway -- both options will look great.

I just love pinstripes!
Soo sexy! (if his body type will carry it well... and assuming it's a day time wedding I guess...)
Also, I would want the pinstripe to be subtle, like you've picked out for this thread (personal preference), I wouldn't like him to look like he's just back from his white-collar job!

I didn''t mean to make a post and then disappear. I have been at a conference all week, and I forgot my laptop cord (what a dull week). Mr. Kat and I definitely appreciate everyone''s feedback

violet3, havernell, fleur.de.lys.88, merrymunky, fatafelice, TheBigT, sparkalicious, panda08, jet2ks, and Lara He decided to go with the majority of PS and go with the pinstripe. Turns out, J. Crew might have the ultimate say, though. So, kama_s, bee, meresal, DefinitelyMaybe, and mscushion plain could still win. The pinstripe pants are on back order and are not estimated to arrive until the end of July. We leave for Ecuador at the end of August, so this should be okay, but we also ordered the plain, just to be safe since they were both currently in stock.

merrymunkyI love the vest only look for less formal weddings! I think it is a great alternative to a suit or a jacket because the groom still looks more dressed up than "just going to work" dressed up, but not more dressed up than the bride.

Spark, of course, Mr. Kat wants to look a little spicy!


Lara Mr. Kat totally has the body for pinstripes--long and lean. He is definitely the hot one in the relationship (means I win! Woot!).

Plain!!! All the way - actually, I''m quite surprised at the amount of votes for pinstripe - I hope not to offend anyone,
but imho it looks rather dated alot of the time..am I the only one that thinks this


I love your choice of the plain suit, it looks very dapper. I also might steal this idea, and have Fi wear no jacket for photos, reception etc -
it really does look ever so sexy

Thanks! I think it is really sexy, too.
The biggest thing we were trying to do was figure out a DW outfit that worked for us. I think it would work at a reception, too, because it is still dressy but not formal or stuffy.

I agree completely - I think it's a great idea. Of course, it depends on your sttle of wedding, but it sounds as if you're going
for a similiar style that I have in mind..sexy, but not stuffy, ya?

I know it's not everyone's tastes, but what I've found I also love for the groom is a pair of slightly worn-in
nice brown leather boots, instead of traditional black shoes.
With that style of suit you picked, and the shirt sleeves rolled up, and the boots - hubba hubba !

I'm sure you know what I mean - I do have a photo but don't want to threadjack any further

Please do! This thread is all about turning Mr. Kat out
Plus, we both err on the funky side of things. Traditional is not a word anyone would ever use to describe either of us.

Ha ha I like that idea Kat - I feel kinda odd posting this, as its a real groom, not a model, but its
the best example I could find off-hand.
To the bride if she sees this, I hope you take it as the compliment it is intended - I think this outfit looks great (and the groom!
) and of course the bride
looks awesome.
ETA: sorry I couldn't get the pic bigger, but hopefully you get the idea..
