you'll know better than anyone here how formal/casual an affair it'll be, but -

no, don't wear wallabees to a wedding, and don't try to dress them up with wool trousers. they're wallabees. the outfit might look cool, but it'll look out of place at a wedding.

I do agree, but as I said it isn't a big deal really, just need to look smart ish. I have a couple of pairs of walkover derbys. Some trickers would be ideal, just as mentioned don't want to fork out really.

Agree with mob

You will end up looking like Walter White, nobody in the real world thinks some speckled wool trousers and geography teacher shoes look smart enough for a direct relatives wedding. Look the part on her big day.

I have a suit Laughing out loud didn't really want to go into the ins and outs of a personal situation; only recently widowed and whole remarriage thing has happened quite fast. Hence she doesn't want it to be super fancy so I was simply asking for advice on a smart casual outfit leaning more towards the smart end.

Feel so far out of the game to ever post this (or anything) in WAYWN thread, though some will argue I was never really in the game to start with. Smiling

First order from Suit Supply. Impressed with both fit and quality.


Picture isn't the clearest. It's this one…

I can see why you think that, but it's not at all actually. Just holding the camera far enough in front of you when sitting down will do that…

I have 3 Ludlow suits, quality is decent and the fit is always spot on for me. I've always bought in the sale in either US or Canada so whether I'd pay full UK retail is another matter.

Oh and fuck you Vazza Smiling
