Hi I am having trouble finding an outfit for my son to wear to our wedding in Italy. My fiance and his best man have but lovely blue suits in House of Fraser and the BM and my daughter are both wearing Navy blue too. My son is 13 and I need to find home something to wear but I know how hard it will be to match up a suit. I have seen some boys blue suits on ebay but its hard to tell what shade they are until you have already bought them My SIL put him in beige shorts and linen shirt at her wedding in Italy but I am thinking he might be a bit too old for that now. Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

What about beige chinos and a blue shirt? I think shorts are too young for a 13 year old for a smart occassion, but the suit might be a bit too much, especially in the heat. You know he's going to take the jacket off at the first opportunity :) If you would prefer him in a suit, a linen suit might be the ideal alternative. It's not as formal but always looks smart, and it's good in the heat. HTH :thnk

I think your right, I was just worried what the beige chinos will look like when everyone else is wearing Blue, he is definetly too old for shorts. I might try and find blue linen trousers and a white shirt.

To save yourself the hassle of trying to match up the colours I'd go for one in that kind of chino colour, like this....

Or maybe just a shirt and trousers or you might be able to get him into a shirt and waistcoat [img:zhkgw3mz]http://image.shutterstock.com/display_pic_with_logo/122689/122689,1267971125,1/stock-photo-shot-of-a-smart-looking-male-in-shirt-tie-and-waistcoat-48132529.jpg[/img:zhkgw3mz] which I think would look great
