Park Avenues With A "Tux"

9413 Views 68 Replies 33 Participants Last post by  Taliesin
Hello all,

So in a few months I'm going to be a groomsman in my friend's wedding. He has chosen a black "tux" with a black 2B notch-lapel jacket, black vest, and black necktie - not exactly my cup of tea, but fortunately it's not my wedding either.

I'm not going to bother trying to change his mind on what he picked out, but I would prefer to avoid wearing the square-toed patent leather shoes he selected as well (just can't stand the square-toed look). I recently bought a pair of Park Avenues in black - I'd much prefer to wear those, but would they be appropriate for such an outfit? (would they be formal enough?)

Thank you for you response!

The second question is should you wear your PAs at the wedding? I think that is a question for the bride and groom to answer, and I think you should abide by their wishes. Like you said, it's not your wedding and you don't have to be a part of it; but if you do I think you should go along with whatever they desire. Just ask them if it's OK with them and don't spring this on them at the last minute.
+2 I'm with Cruiser on this one.
