Hi folks! I posted a thread to MFA a few weeks ago and was told that I might want to x-post it here, too. I tried posting it as a text-only post but it got auto-moderated away, so now I'm posting it as an image. Apologies if this is inappropriate for this forum or if there's not interest in it here!

Initially, I'd asked MFA for tailoring advice on my upcoming nuptials and made a followup post, linked above. The fit wasn't quite perfect (especially given my limited budget), but I'm happy with how everything turned out. If you want to read more about the wedding itself, look here or here.

For reference, I'm around 6'1" and 195 lbs.

>Items and Costs

My outfit consisted of the following items. I waited for sales on the bigger things and bought them well in advance of the ceremony, and in the end everything cost around $600, including alterations.

Shoes: AE Walnut Strands - $100. I got them at Last Chance in Phoenix, AZ. They had maybe half a dozen pairs at the time in various sizes, as well as tons of other AE shoes. As I understand, they sell returns, exchanges and poor selling/overstocked items from Nordstrom. I've also gotten beeswax CDBs there ($30) and Chuck Taylors ($15). The shoes themselves were well constructed and pretty, though I used a bit of brown shoe polish to darken them slightly (they were too orange for my tastes before).

Pocket Square: Golden Bronze Royal Silk - $20. There were gold bits in the paisley pattern on the tie that I thought it went well with. I also like the blue/gold/brown/bronze color combo. The PS was larger and a bit thicker and stiffer than the other ones I own, but didn't pose any problems for it.

3-Piece Suit (bought as separates): Bar III Midnight Blue - $250. I waited for one of Macy's twice a year sales, found a coupon code that stacked with the sale, and bought a couple different sizes of the various suit components, returning the ones that didn't quite fit. The fabric and everything seemed nice! And I rather liked the color. My only other suit right now is a lightweight, light grey seersucker 2-piece, so I might get a Bar III Charcoal at Macy's if a good sale comes up some time.

Boutonnière: This gold thing from Amazon - $10. I wanted something small and pretty that went with the other parts of the outfit and ultimately chose this.

Tie: Bigass Paisley from thetiebar ("23037: BIGASS PAISLEY-BROWN"), though I can't seem to find it now... - $20. The quality and construction seemed good, especially at this price point!

Shirt: Costco Slim Fit Light Blue - $20. I liked the fabric and color, but before tailoring it was pretty billowy, even with a "slim" fit. The fabric's also not very soft, and after 9 hours of wearing it I developed a bit of chafing on my neck from the collar.

Undies (lol): ExOfficio Boxer Briefs and Airism V-neck - $15. Picked them up on various sales over the years. Super comfy! Great for backpacking, too!

Socks: Target Anchor Socks - $4. I got my grandpa the same pair (once upon a time he was a sailor). They're not the best built socks, but I liked the pattern and color.

Belt: Bought at a thrift store a long time ago... - $10

Watch: Timex Expedition - $25. I got some flak for going with this over a more formal watch on MFA, and it was a close call the day of (I brought a few watches with me) but ultimately I ended up feeling this one the most. I bought it through a recent sale on here, actually. It's become my go-to wear-with-flannel-and-jeans watch.

Ring: My (now) wife made me mine! Cost for the silver - $5. She ordered some wire from riogrande.com, cut it, bent it into a circle, soldered the two ends together, and then shaped and polished it. Pretty straightforward overall!

Alterations on shirt, pants, jacket, and vest - $130. The tailor made some changes to the shoulders and back of the jacket to accommodate some injury-related asymmetry, took the jacket, shirt, and vest in at the waist and through the torso, shortened the jacket sleeves a smidge, and took the butt/thighs out on the pants (I had to go 2" up in the waist so that was a little loose, but fine with a belt, so I didn't take it in. The legs/crotch/butt were still a bit tight though, so I had him take those out). According to him, the jacket was a bit small for me (it was a 44R) and that caused the dimpling on the shoulder, but I don't think that was too noticeable. Originally, the outfit looked like this.

Normally, I would recommend you buy a tuxedo. I think it's a worthwhile investment. However, given your budget situations, I'm going to recommend you rent it... but not from your local store. You have two weeks, so here we go:

Rent from The Black Tux. It's been mentioned on GQ and was put together with input from Peter of The Black Tie Guide. Slim fitting tuxedos, not the baggy stuff from Men's Wearhouse.

Entirely depends on their availability, but I would recommend the following:

Modern Peak Lapel Jacket - https://theblacktux.com/collection/tuxedos/modern-slim-peak-lapel - $110

Since you haven't worn tuxedos before, start here. Sartorially correct (one button, peak lapel, etc). Skinny lapels, but whatever.

Tuxedo Shirt - https://theblacktux.com/collection/shirts/white-dress-shirt - $15

There are differences between your standard white dress shirt and a tuxedo shirt. Trust me and get this one (laydown collar, not wing collar)

Bowtie: Skip the bowtie on the website. Pre-tied looks lame. Buy a self-tie one from Amazon. Here's one from The Tie Bar for $18 or a cheap one for $6

Tying is easy. Just use Youtube to learn. It's like tying shoelaces.

Cufflinks and Studs (these go in your shirt) for $10 total.


Suspenders to hold up your pants. $10. Or you can buy a pair from Men's Wearhouse for $35
, along with this bowtie since they're having a BOGO

Cummerbund to buy for $15. Creates an unbroken line. Please wear this.

White Pocket Square for $10 to buy from Amazon. Just puff it up. Not 100% necessary, but nice.

If you have a nice pair of black dress shoes (read: Oxfords with laces, not loafers, and nothing with a square toe), you can polish those up nicely (get them professionally done and ask for it extra shiny) or you can rent these patent leather shoes or non-patent, black leather shoes for $20 if necessary.

Total Price: $220. Can be completely scaled down if you have some of the accessories (black dress shoes, pocket square, suspenders, etc), which could bring it down to $180.

Phew, that was exhausting.

Good luck and crush it.

Ohhh lord things to make a movie. As a film/production major, this list is gonna be long. cracks knuckles


Wagon wheels

Saloon doors and hay backdrops

Signs and cutouts

Old milk set

Plastic mini boot glasses

Horse balloon

Cow colored balloons

Chicken balloon

Old compass

Declaration of Independance

Feather pen and ink

Betsy Ross flag


Pilgrim Hats


Shoe buckles

Ben Franklin costume

Hat with wigg and feather


Movie Props and Decorations and Things

Hollywood cut outs

Directors Megaphones set

Movie studio lights paper lantern set

Light that looks like an old camera

Black directors chair

Another fake camera

Things that will help you make a movie

Alright. I would suggest that if you have a smart phone, you film on that. Iphones and Andriods particularly have fairly decent cameras on them. As for computers-PC, you have windows movie maker built in. MAC, you should have Imovie. These will be your editing platforms. If you don't have a smart phone, A cheap video camera will do. A mini tripod will make your life loads easier. It will make it so all your footage does not shake. However, you can make a cheap monopod to fit anything. String, and a metal washer or something else circular and slightly heavy will do. You can find out how to make it here Skip to about 2:45 to see how to do it.

A dry erase board works as a great teleprompter-reminder, guide, silent directions, etc. (It also works pretty well as a bounce, but I am 100% you won't be doing that, haha. But hey if you ever get more into movie making, anything white makes a good bounce!) That's really it (be careful of your audio. You could potentially get a cheap mic that'll pic up noise better, but you should be alright if you're just careful about it!) you should be good to go with all of that.

u/Variant_Peck · 2 pointsr/malefashionadvice

Well, you'll need the suit - if bespoke tailoring is out of the question, then something made-to-measure could work. You're looking for notch lapel with functional boutonniere button, no ticket pocket, no pocket flaps and a cuff in the pants. When you bring it to a tailor, show him this photo - this will let him know you don't want more modern, slim adjustments. A white pocket square gets nestled in your breast pocket.

The shirt and tie are next – you can go button down collar or not. there are several collar styles, search around for the best approximation. The tie pattern will be difficult to match exactly, but you're looking for a dot pattern on brown. A gold tie clip holds the tie in place.

The shoes aren't very detailed, but don't appear to be wingtips, so that leave you something with a cap-toe or something with a plain toe, both in brown of course. With the hat, I really suggest you take a look around a local hat-makers because you'll need to try one on for fit.

These are all just suggestions, depending on your price range you can find similar versions, just try to match the illusrtation as closely as possible. If you're in a store, bring along the picture, it'll be easier to find what you need if you can show people. Best of luck in your searching and if you have any questions, feel free to ask.

I actually bought white handkerchiefs on Amazon and did my own silkscreen! I ordered my custom silkscreen design on Etsy for $12. Silk Screen paint is $15.

It was very easy and they came out perfect! Looked super expensive. Did 200 for about $80!

We ordered beads too and Mardi Gras masks and I did NOLA Paparazzi Photo Booth

We also did homemade pralines as favor handouts and satchels of Tony’s spices! Those were the biggest hit!

Sweets and Spices!


How I did it:

Leinuosen 50 Pack Handkerchiefs Cotton Classic Hankies Pocket Square Towel White for Kids Girl Boy Tea Parties (11 x 11 Inch)


Speedball 004828 Opaque Fabric Screen Printing Ink, 32 fl. oz, Gold - you only need small amount of paint! I bought too much


Etsy Silkscreen - send her your design you want!

Like some people, even wearing the rift with the triangle as far down as I can manage, there's a firm pressure on my cheek bones that eventually turn into pain. Having a counterweight helps balances out the rift and prevent it from doing this. Also, since the extra weight is dangling off the back of the headset, it does not really add any weight pressure to your head, it just kinda keeps the rift balanced correctly.


Bill of Materials:

(you may want to grab the weights elsewhere as the price had gone up, it was $5 when I bought it)





Making it is pretty simple. First I laid down the handkerchief flat on the table. Then I peeled the adhesive cover and stacked the four weight bars two by two on the sheet with the bottom side up so that when I fold in the handkerchief, it will stick on to the bottom of the weights. I kept the folds together with some double sided tape and finished up with a velcro tie to be able to latch on to the rift to (3 is probably overkill btw, it should be perfect with 2).


BTW, the weights come in a set of 4 for 60gx4= 240g total which is perfect. I was dumb and bought 4 as I thought it only comes with one stick. As a a result, I have enough materials to make another 2 counterweights. If anyone wants one, I can ship them out for the cost of shipping (~$7 for small flat rate box within US).

u/M_F_N · 3 pointsr/malefashionadvice

Why not, I'll try giving you some different options, long night at work as well.... Also, the items i've listed range from very basic to very expensive. The most important thing that this outfit has going for it is fit. Focus on the fit. It also doesn't hurt that Beckham's wearing it and he's crazy good looking.

Also severe allergy sufferer (currently in the midst of allergy shots to try and kill them) and the switch to handkerchiefs was partially because we were using so many kleenex on a day to day basis. I generally take a clean one with me to work (2 if it's bad tree pollen day) and then blow and fold over the course of the day. Once i get home I will switch out if my hankie is particularly gross but usually it's not that bad. Since they are thicker then tissues there is less "gross" factor in reusing. Oh also don't bother with women's hankies, they are tiny. The men's ones are awesome since they are bigger, I use this particular set (http://www.amazon.com/Wedding-Purple-Hankies-Presentation-MH1031/dp/B003Z034F0/ref=sr_1_23?s=apparel&ie=UTF8&qid=1396536708&sr=1-23) and they are super soft. For some reason the purple ones from this collection are softer then the blue, I have no idea why that is, I may just happen to wash/use them more frequently.

u/Humpty-Dumpty · 2 pointsr/malefashionadvice

You can get cheap, decent-looking white pocket squares at your local Ross, TJ Maxx, or even thrift store. I bought a three pack for like $5, and they're still classy.

Amazon has a 6-pack for $10.

u/GreenestGhost · 1 pointr/BuyItForLife

I've got a few handkerchief sets, as I started using them about two years ago (for copious amounts of nasal discharge, not for sweat), and the first one was from Dockers, with sharp looking brown or blue banding around the edge of each:


They're still the best ones I've used. For some reason, 6 handkerchiefs x 3 sets = about 5 handkerchiefs. I don't understand the math, all I know is that I'm waiting on these to arrive:


If they're anything like the first set, I'd say they are absorbent, soft, and durable, for at least two years, without being bulky or odd looking.

u/highschoolstyle · 2 pointsr/malefashionadvice

Are you wearing a black tux? if so I do not recommend matching her. You could try and wear a gold pocket square but i think that would look cheap.
perhaps something like this where only the edge of the pocket square is gold. Also make sure your tux/ suit is not a rental if it is a rental forget about matching and buy your own tux/suit

u/okwowandmore · 5 pointsr/EDC

I'm a minimalist

  1. Makr Canvas Zip Slim. I love this wallet so much I have all four colors

  3. Handkerchief

  4. Notebook, currently Word but I'll be going back to Rite in the Rain when this one is done

  5. Fisher Backpacker Space Pen

  6. Work Badge

  7. Timex Ironman Watch
u/buyers-remorse · 1 pointr/frugalmalefashion

I picked up a silk, white one for ~$4 from a Men's Warehouse outlet after automatic 50% off last month. They had a bunch of colors and patterns.

Amazon also has options in bulk like this. Not sure about the quality, though.

u/rfix · 5 pointsr/malefashionadvice

My advice is to wear a tuxedo (or navy/black suit depending on how formal your prom is) with a white shirt and conservative tie and get a white pocket square with red trim. Something like this:

The red bow tie might come off as a little too "Barbershop Quartet"

u/shilockthejew · 3 pointsr/malefashionadvice

White Cotton Handkerchief. You can get individually for yourself or even a dozen or so to give to your groomsmen as well. Hankies

u/stirus · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

Do you think it matters if the pink isn't exactly the same shade as my shirt? I like this one a lot but wasn't sure if it'd work since it's probably going to be close but not the same shade as my shirt.

u/Superfuzz-BigMuff · 3 pointsr/nasalsnuff


I use these. You can throw them in the washer and you get a ton of them for 12 bucks.

u/skinnybison · 1 pointr/EDC

This all I could find so far, a ten pack

u/Everinyourfavor · 11 pointsr/EDC

25 dollars won't get you too far, but each of these is around 25 dollars or less.
