Suit For Prom - Advice Needed - [PICS INSIDE] - Page 8

post #106 of 203

As for the bow tie: if you're going to wear it, at least minimize the amount of garish fabric displayed. That bow seem a bit too wide to anyone else?

After alternations.
Feels good to me, looks decent. White shirt for my prom, black shirt for her.

Good enough for prom.

Should I use the white pocket square? Or will that be too much color (with the teal bow tie and boutonniere)

It really doesn't matter. Come back for advise for your prom and enjoy hers knowing that a PS isn't going to make a lick of difference either way in this case.

Suit looks great. You'll get years of use out if it. Now get a decent wide-shouldered suit-hanger and a garment bag to store it in. You'll use them the rest of your life, so get good ones.

No Caustic Man? Having a good hanger and garment bag to preserve one's purchase is not a good idea?

thats fine, but for an $80 suit, what the hell is the point.

The fit looks good Buffalo. No, don't wear the pocket square. With it being all black the bow tie will draw attention and the pocket square just confuses it. Keep it simple with this one.

It's never too early to take care of ones purchases instead of treating them like trash. He should be building habits as well as a wardrobe. And one day, when he has a $500 suit, he'll have the hanger and garment bag waiting.

My point was that yes he is in high school and this suit is for prom, not exactly a place where one must look impeccable, but let's just be honest. The suit's fit leaves a lot to be desired and since it cost $80 the construction is probably not the best. That being the case he will probably not get years of use out of it before it falls apart and it will probably end up in the garbage or a Goodwill by the time he starts getting enough money and reason to want to dress well.

 

But aside from that, the things you have been advising this young man about are puzzling. It makes me doubt your sincerity and suspect that you are in fact a troll. Who else would confidently assert such balderdash and ignorance of good fit?

settle down.

A good hanger and garment bag will cost twice what his suit costs. Once he gets a decent suit, then he can get decent hanger and bag.

I think a white pocket square would be fine. Again, if you can wrangle it, get a teal pocket square in lieu of the bow tie and wear it open collar. If you've gotta have a tie on, a grey would be best.

If it's "semi-formal", why are you considering a bowtie?
I like Duff_Man's suggestion - a PS, open collar. It's high school prom - chances are if you wear a tie, you'll take it off within an hour, tie it around your head, and make an ass of yourself anyway.
