The graduation is late afternoon and then we a hosting a party outdoors at our home afterward. It will be hot so the seersucker casual makes sense I think. It won't look any more out of place from a formality perspective because I expect many of these people will wear shorts and t shirts to the ceremony! Last night she requested I wear it with my spectators (no problem) and a bow tie. Ok, now I'm not so confident. Never worn a bow tie other than for formal wear. Should I do cotton or silk? Is this going to look costumey? I'm going to do it for her regardless but I would appreciate some advice on bow ties with seersucker.
Long post for a short question but the state of dress of parents at her school in a relatively affluent area drives me insane!
