Alright. Here we go... . Prom is this weekend (May 4) . And I haven't really given much thought about the tux. I'm lucky enough to own one (Thank you, Lord.). It has black satin peak lapels and is a one button jacket. And a few months ago, I also snagged a stud set plus cuff links as well as a vest/tie combo and a tux shirt. For dances, I usually try to match the color scheme of my date's dress as much as possible. This time however, my date's dress is pink. Easy to get the corsage... not so simple for me. I'd like to go without renting a thing, but if worst comes to worst... I can always revert to that. Thing is, the vest I own goes really high. With it fully buttoned (and it only looks good this way) only one stud shows. All the rest are beneath the vest. And it's really more fitting for Winter. Sooo, it's May and all. I'm thinking about wearing instead of the normal pleated tuxedo shirt, a white French cuff shirt (I have a few sets of links that I can use) with a white tie. In my eyes, the look is formal and I have a personality that could carry off the look. Many people tell me I dress as if I live in New York. ha. If only I could afford the cost of living. Anyway, back to the origin of this all: what do you think? Would you consider the tuxedo with white Fr cuff shirt and white necktie (no vest) a complete tuxedo look? Thanks to everyone who helps.
