Dear East Side Bride,
My husband is having a bit of a dilemma. We are going to an outdoor wedding this coming Saturday (yes, I know, I could've sent this email sooner) and has nothing to wear.
For our own wedding he rented a suit, as the last suit he owned was a boxy affair used for his high school grad. We've been meaning to get him a nice new slim-tailored suit but haven't had time since our marriage, and now the wedding is three days away and he needs a head-to-toe outfit. (Like, I am talking this man doesn't even have nice SHOES.)
Now, it's outdoors in Ontario in July, so it's going to be SWELTERING. A suit is a bad idea anyways. Can you give us some ideas on what he could wear (general ideas as we're not going to have time to hunt up and order specific items) to keep cool and look good in something we're going to be able to find in our local mall?
Hope that's not too tall an order.
How do we feel about a DUDE in a jacket with no shirt underneath?
Buy him a great pair of pants that FIT* and a shirt with a little personality.
Something like these summerweight oxfords from Club Monaco.
With a pair of bucks + pink socks?** Yesplease.
(These blue bucks are also from Club Monaco, which I'm hoping you have at your mall.)

*Club Monaco and a lot of other stores offer tailoring services, so there's no excuse for a pair of pants that's too long. Seriously, people. THIS SHIT DRIVES ME CRAZY.
**Go with a pink shirt or pink socks, but not both. You wouldn't do that, would you??
