I do love seeing Mr. Jet in a suit, which happens very infrequently as both he and and I have jobs where a more casual day-to-day look is accepted. Whenever there's an occasion where I get to see Mr. Jet "suit up", I get a little giddy - our wedding day will absolutely be no exception!
Mr. Jet currently has one black suit that he wears for every wedding, funeral or fancy event. He also has a navy blazer that makes him look like a fishing captain - totally hot.
For the wedding, he wanted to take a practical approach by buying a suit, versus renting a tuxedo. This not only made sense from a "I can keep this forever" standpoint, but also allowed Mr. Jet much more variety in terms of style and color. We also had our guys in mind, as we'd rather they put their money towards something they can own instead of having to return it come Monday morning! The difference between an average tuxedo rental and the suit we eventually ordered was only $40, so it truly seemed like an economical choice for everyone.
Mr. Jet and I had always thought a grey suit would look great and fit perfectly with our theme so we visited our local Men's Wearhouse and Mr. Jet was actually fitted for this suit:
As luck would have it, they had a nearly identical, charcoal-grey three-piece suit for around $90 less than the MW equivalent. Mr. Jet tried on the jacket and it looked fab on him! He said he felt great in it - and with a lesser price tag, felt even better about asking the guys to invest in it as well. Once all the guys finish their fittings (which had BETTER be soon, Mr. Jet!! ;)), the suits will be officially on order.
We did manage to accomplish something at MW without wasting our associate's time - we found ties for Mr. Jet and all the guys as well as a snappy pair of suspenders for Mr. Jet.
