Park Avenues With A "Tux"

9416 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!

Ask your friend if he minds. He (and/or his bride) may want everyone in identical shoes. If he approves, wear your PAs. They will be much more comfortable for dancing than the plastic rental shoes.

BTW this is about making the bride and groom comfortable, not about proper dress. The outfit is a hopeless mashup of disparate elements with wrong details.
