Thanks to everyone. Attended without cuffs with a perfectly unperfect tied bow tie. No one noticed except me. But I felt good about it:)
Amazed at how many guys wore prom outfits. To each his own, but disappointing that we seem to have lost any compass. IMHO this is a small example of a larger and more troubling trend. "Forget any rules, if it works for me it is good" seems to be the attitude. And sadly, the younger generation doesn't have a large enough group my age pulling them aside to provide direction to keep them from looking like self absorbed clowns.
