You should definitely wear white gloves with white tie, at least while dancing. One does not want to soil one's partner's dress, nor inadvertently press flesh to flesh! You can take the gloves off for eating.
The midnight blue one I own is shawl collar, one button, of course, which I wear with cummerbund, but I also have a white double breasted shawl collar dinner jacket, which I wear with neither vest nor cummerbund. When I replace the worn out peak lapel single breasted, I will undoubtedly wear it with a white vest.
Uniform. In the late 1960's at my high school that meant black pants, white or blue shirt, navy blazer, blue and gold striped tie, black socks and shoes. But that changed radically as we rushed headlong toward the 1970's. We were allowed to wear other sorts of ties, first. Then it degenerated and even pants and shirts could be different. Only the blue blazer remained untouched.

I don't think I would wear a bright green tie, however. Oh, and I am at least in part Irish, in spite of the name. My paternal grandmother was Irish.

I have found no scientific evidence that pool chlorine will damage your eyes, but I wear goggles anyway. I don't need the irritation.

Generally, yes, you require fewer calories as you age. Your metabolism does slow down. At 21, I weighed about as much as I do now, but I consumed a lot more calories worth of food every day. I also believe I am more active now than at 21 (I was a very studious type - usually in the library or in...
