With it being such a young crowd the jackets will be on chairbacks... come now, these are kids going to a prom, not Nobel laureate's having dinner in Geneva nd they will dance to music that would shatter our old eardrums - a blessing if it happened early on. What else are 17 year olds going to do? Step out back to light their pipes and discuss the stock market? If you'd like to stand out as a little cooler, little sharper and a little more suave than your contemporaries the best advice is this: Tie your own bowtie. No clippies, no pretied. Classic black tux, tie your own black tie and later in the evening when the jackets are in a pile with the clip-ons in the pockets yours can be unknotted and left casually around your neck. Given what we saw at the movie theatre last night, high school kids losing the jacket to dance is the least of my worries.
