I have a fraternity Semi Formal Dance/dinner event comming up. I live in an area of Michigan near Flint where Fubu is considered fahionable. ugh. Needless to say I don't plan on sporting the thug look to this festivity. The closest thing to a fashionable place to shop nearby is a Marshall Feilds at the local mall. This event will be attended by mostly guys in their early twenties with dates. I'm going for a fun, laid back, yet still classy look. it's not a real formal event, i could easily get by without at tie. The suit i'm considering is a greyis khaki three button with single pleat cuffed pants, a dark greyish green shirt and no tie. I'm concerend about what color shirts look good with this color suit, i want to purchase a few for variety. i'm looking to spend about seven hundred on the whole outfit including shoes. the shoes i'm looking at are oxblood kenneth coles (i know you all hate kenneth cole, but thats the best we've got out here.) is oxblood an appropriate color for this suit? should the belt then also be oxblood? should there be a shirt visible under the dress shirt if it's left unbuttoned? one button or two undone? any advice would be appreciated. oh yeah, my date is a fashion major and a model, so i need to dress to impress...
