That suit is a trip to the tailor away from looking really good, but there was probably no way DM could get a fast turnaround on narrowing the legs / trying to bring in the under arm area of the jacket.
Would have liked to have seen darker sneakers when going this route. Sure it has some blue that matches, but at the cost of the lighter surrounds, it just doesn't properly jive in my eyes. I thought about doing it when I went to prom, but never found shoes that would work so I went with the crappy rental shoes that came with my tux. Ugh remember that whole rental racket?
Most important of all, however, was that he enjoyed himself.
I also sorta like the shirt tie combo. I like the shoes too, but just not with the suit. But then again im partial to funky shoes. Bottom line you tried something a bit different, that takes balls, props.

No, no, no, and no. This attitude is the root cause of the current sartorial malaise afflicting our country. Just like all good cooks follow a recipe to the smallest teaspoon until they learn the trade and what works, all men seeking to develop a style must adhere to the basics of fabrics, color combinations, tone, proportion and, for the love of all that is holy, propriety. He was at a formal event and he wore those terrible, garish shoes? It would take courage to wear sweat pants and a wife beater to prom, not a suit, dress shirt, tie and those monstrosities.
Nothing about that outfit took balls and it should not be encouraged.
