We finally booked the formal wear tonight. Andrew called some of the local Masters Tuxedo stores to see if they carried the Oscar de la Renta grey cut-away tux that we’d seen at the Sears store, and to see if they had a better vest selection. The Falls Church store had them, so off we went this evening.
The guy we talked to was very helpful. He explained that it was a morning suit, and our 4PM wedding might be too late in the day for it. I giggled and said that I sincerely doubted that anyone at the wedding would really know the difference (who’s ever even heard of a morning suit in this decade?). He also had one in the store so we could look at it. The pants are striped, but not like the clown-pants with the tux we’d seen at Men’s Wearhouse. So, we told him we’d book it. He was a bit surprised that it took so little work on his part, but perhaps he could see that we were getting exasperated.
Andrew got measured there, but now we need Greg and Dad to call in their measurements and put down a deposit.
