Q: I have a group of 7 groomsmen, and everyone will be wearing the same dark grey suit. I love the idea of a gingham shirt with a solid color tie like this:
This is the original look I was hoping for.
The problem is that we have every body type represented in the group which makes it hard to find 1 exact shirt for everyone. I’ve been searching around, but I haven’t found 1 shirt that fits all. Me and another groomsman are large guys (18.5 34/35). Then there’s my stocky brother (18 35/36), and the best man is fairly tall (17 1/2 and 36/37 Tall). Many of the groomsmen don’t live nearby so I was hoping I could find a shirt online that’s less than $60. The wedding is in less than 2 months so custom tailored shirts are out of the question, and I think they’d be cost prohibitive anyway.
I think I’m going to have to settle for a white shirt with different color ties which is fine but I was hoping to do something more fun and creative. The colors are purple and orange. The boutonnieres are most likely going to be orange so I want the shirt/tie to be more purple to match the purple bridesmaid dresses. Can you help me out?!

Hats off to the groom-to-be and the bride-to-be for throwing us a box of ideas! They certainly have great style and vision!
P.S. The grey suit would be perfection with any of these rich dark brown shoes
