Graduation in a week - Formalwear - please help

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi, I just received mail from my high school, and I have been invited to commencement and an awards ceremony - I'm receiving several upper level awards. However, It says the event is formal, and it says to dress accordingly. I went to a public high school, and it says dress accordingly to a formal event; am i right to seriously doubt the appropriateness of wearing formalwear to my graduation?
Instead, I just bought some AE Fifth Avenues ( a huge upgrade from $80 shoes from a department store ) in walnut. I am in a fraternity to I need to buy a couple more suits anyway, and I found a really great deal on a Hugo Boss suit - for $400 in Toronto. Its medium grey, and a fairly modern cut. I wanted to wear a pink or blue shirt with contrast cuffs and collar, and either a blue or pink/red paisley tie. Also, would it be acceptable to wear a bow tie, with a plain white, french cuff shirt?

In Ontario nearly all public schools hold it in October, since with prom and exams there is no time at the end of grade 12, instead they treat it as almost as a homecoming. We basically go back, re-meet friends, complain about university to teachers, and actually have time for a graduation.
EDIT : FORGOT TO ADD THAT WE WILL NOT BE WEARING GOWNS OR HATS
