I 100% guarantee you that you will NOT be kicked out of prom for not having a vest.

Never said I would be kicked out; but it would probably be better to look more uniform with people.

If this is a troll thread, as I half suspect, it is certainly one of the most clever I've seen in quite a while!

Nice alterations, dude! It really shows how much even those simple operations can do for a look and further enhances my belief that fit is more important than anything else.

As for your choice of "unusual" colors; Ozwald Boateng.

Seriously...... Black bow tie with a black suit and white shirt? (Hello its a suit not a tux). People arguing about garment bags and hangers, tying ties around your head ......patch[1].gif

Not sure where all the off topic stuff came from. Certainly didnt force a lead into that.

The suit has been settled. For my prom looks like white shirt, black vest, and black bow tie.

How should the vest fit?

I can see the point of trolling political discussion groups, or religious ones, etc. I don't agree with it but at least I can see why someone would do it. But trolling a community about clothing? Why? I only ask because I suspect you are right.

Dude! Wear whatever you want. Don't tell her anything except "OK, whatever" if she really has a problem (she won't, GUARANTEED) she won't go with you when you pick her up. Trust me, you are to young to give a shit! Unless this is the first and only time you'll ever get laid (in which case you might want to consider plastic surgery or playing for the other team) Stick to your guns! Lesson learned in life.

Oh, trolling happens all the time here. For a lot of forumites, there are orthodoxies as rigorously cherished and upheld as those of any political or religious zealots, and there are mischievous spirits who enjoy baiting the orthodox. Since BuffaloWang incessantly flies in the face of forum orthodoxy--the black shirt, the teal colored bowtie, the vest in lieu of a jacket, etc.--I hope I can be forgiven for entertaining some suspicions of trolling here.

I refuse to give you advice on this outfit because you've already left the bounds of good taste far, far in the dust. 

 

Semi-formal is black tie. That does not mean simply wearing a black tie, it means wearing a tuxedo jacket (not merely a black jacket; it has lapels with satin facings and fabric-covered buttons, no vents, jetted pockets, one button, please-and-thank-you) with matching pants (they should have a satin stripe along the outseam; they are not simply black pants), a cummerbund or vest (BLACK), and a black bow tie.

I would like to take this opportunity to urge you to reconsider your ideas of coolness, gentleness, and style.

Sorry I won't be able to hear your advice.

I'm not the one that sets dress codes. Pretty sure the majority of high schoolers don't give a shit about dressing well. Which means coming out of here, even if not up to SF standards, will be better than the majority of the guys there.

If you still want to give advice, I'm all ears.

What happened to the suit outfit?

Suit outfit was worn for her formal. Ill post up a photo when she gets them.

[suit, black shirt, teal bow tie, AE PA's]

For my prom: white shirt, black vest, black bow tie, AE PA's with red boutonnière.

Will prob bring a suit jacket to wear if I can. If everyone is in only a vest, then will keep it in the car.
