Best man at wedding...what to wear

my biddy is wearing a tux, which i find totally sucks...he told me to wear a suit...ive never been to awedding before so im not familiar with the dress code.
would it be criminal if i put a dark blue suit (very slight violet stripes..suit is amazing cut, very classy, around 2-3K) and Rosetti brown shoes?
or do i got all black and white?

Also, should I wear my $80 man thong under my pants? It is leopard print and I find it holds quite nicely.

Leave the price out brah, it doesn't really matter. Your question is about color and like the others said, you should match others in the wedding.

If you're buddy is wearing a tux... personally I'd wear a black or wso/">grey suit with a white wso/">shirt and slim black tie.

You could probably do a three-piece if you want to dress it up a bit since he's as formal as can be.

Just make sure that if you buy a new brand name wso/">suit you leave the label sewn onto the sleeve.

Dude you should totally wear a suit and probably a black one, being a best man is a huge repsosibility and trust me you dont want to screw your friend for trusting in you. Either go with a black tux or choose a suit of the same color as your friend the groom is. Trust me this kind of stuff sticks for life.

I think for men's ethnic wear waistcoat with churidars, kurta pajamas, Jodhpuri suits, Dhoti kurtas and so on, These are some of the most trending looks that you will see this season and this will see you through most of the occasions lined up for you this year, weddings, engagements, small cozy dinners to grand parties.
