Looking for a specific color...HELP!!!

Hello! :) I am getting married in October and I am looking for a specific color for my fiances tuxedo. I am looking for a Taupe kind of color. (kind of like a darker tan)  All of the places we've been have tan and chocolate, but I am looking for something more in between.  I live in North Jersey, but I will travel to South Jersey if I have to.  Any help would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks  <3

    Would he be opposed to wearing a regular suit? I'd think you'd have more color options going that route.

    Um, those are not tuxedos.  Tuxedos have a satin facing on the lapel and a stripe down the side of the pants.  Those are suits.  You should be able to find some in stores with menswear departments, but you will have to buy them..
    Tuxedos should be black.
    After looking on the internet, I found reference to this "wedding suit" in Britain and Europe in 2012-13.  I think it was a trendy thing that had its day.  There are hundreds of adds from Chinese sites (shudder) that use this photo and sell cheap copies.  Don't go there!
    You found this on Pinterest, didn't you?  Try these:http://www.menswearhouse.com/shop/MWThematic_12751_12004_-1_N_taupe-modern-suit.html

  • You also might want to put this on your local board if you haven't.  Brides in your area might have more detailed information.

    What you have posted is a 3 piece suit.

    I think you will be unlikely to rent this colour (I assumed you've already looked around and that is why you are here).

    This would be less unusual to buy- suits do come in many colours, but a rental store isn't going to invest in something for one wedding a year.

    If you do want to buy, try both the larger and high end operations. You may be able to get something made to measure through a (reputable) online store.

    This is an example: https://ephapparel.com/WebProduct/Products?webCategoryId=7

    Eph Apparel. They are a Canadian company with a home base, but you can also order online by providing your measurements. Looks like they have 2 tan and one lighter brownish option.
