Khaki suit for a formal - Page 2

post #16 of 22

People might frown on you passing a khaki suit for a formal one. It is primarily for casual wear only.

I've never seen khaki used in a formal event yet.

I don't think the event sounds that formal. It's like weddings that put "black tie" when they don't even know what that really entails.

A college formal doesn't mean formal like black-tie, it means formal as in guys wear a tie and girls put on a party dress.

If it were a winter formal, he'd likely want to wear a darker suit, but for a spring formal a khaki suit is completely appropriate.

Some of the guys will likely show up in a blue blazer and khakis.

Yabbut that was TKE. What do real fraternities wear?

Ouch?  If you're in a fraternity you'd know that it is impossible to compare different chapters of the same fraternity from campus to campus since each chapter is drastically different.

sorry man, just kidding. Maybe it's changed, but TKE didn't have a great reputation in the late '80s when I was in school. I actually started to pledge TKE but dropped out after I slept with the chapter president's girlfriend. shog[1].gif
