I have an upcoming dance at school and have a bit of a predicament. I got a made to measure suit made just for this event a couple months prior and did not expect to have a date. However, it has been an eventful couple of weeks and long story short I have a date to this dance now. Usually, dates will match for this event. The dress guidelines are pretty much the dressier end of semi-formal if not formal. I just need advice on whether or not I match her well enough and what I could do to match her even more. For the most part, her dress is black (the bottom half) with bejeweled detailing on the top half (I'm really bad at describing women's clothing) sorry. My suit is gray and can be seen in this link : https://www.indochino.com/product/premium-gray-suit . I really want to wear this suit because it was pretty pricy when I got it and I got it made specifically for this event without knowledge of eventually getting a date. So here's my question : should I wear the gray suit with a black tie or an ivory tie? If none of the above, what do you recommend? Might I also mention, I get my suits made to measure because I am quite small for my age and don't fit in off the rack suits. Therefore, if I rented a tux from somewhere it would be very ill-fitting and I'd rather look good than perfectly match so please don't recommend that I do so.
Thank You so much in advance for helping me out! It's my senior year and my last dance so hopefully I'll look dapper!
also diamond tip bow tie or butterfly bow tie or just regular tie? white shirt or black shirt? is it acceptable to wear a cummerbund with a suit/should I or should I wear suspenders?
