Alright, I've already searched through a couple of the forums and it has been made pretty clear the dividing line of black formal wear on this site. I understand that. (Or don't considering my question topic). But this site does seem to have the most knowledgeable and active user base, so I have to try at least. I'll be outright with everything.
The occasion coming up is Commencement Ball, it is pretty much the college version of prom for graduating seniors. It is in the evening time and obviously the attire is formal wear.
I've never been the one to be fashion forward or edgy or anything, but (to me) black on black has always looked cool and slimming. This is important to me (as I'm sure to everyone else) because what I want to accentuate on is the slimming effect. Recently I've lost 50lbs, and still going at it, and I'm trying to show off what I have accomplished. I'm trying to take advantage of whatever visual effect I can and use it, forgive me I don't mean to sound so vain.
It seems like the answer is in the details too here. I'll post up a picture as well with me wearing the suit soon so I can get even more accurate critiques (I'm open to honest ones) cause I want to be absolutely certain given the time in advance that I have to prepare for it. What I can tell you off the bat is that the suit is Calvin Klein and it has pinstripes. (Not a lot of info, but if you need more I'll provide it). I'm a big set guy still, at 210 at about 6'1", and I'm really set on this look, but I'm open to alternatives or ways to making this work.
And look, I get how most people here are against it. I'm not looking for nonsense, just give me your honest constructive point. If you don't think it works, especially after the picture, express what the better alternative might be and I'll respond and put it to good use.
I'm new to this whole men's fashion business, so I want to get this right. If I can make this suit work in this setting for me that would be great. Just looking for good feedback, all help is welcome. Thanks for hearing me out.
