And DON'T get black, just get Gray and change up the square, tie and shirt for Prom. Also, get proper laced dress shoes, no loafers and no squared toe shoes.

I'm expert at half windsors and I've got some burgundy ankle dress boots that ill try to match with the pocket square and knit tie.

Just find a Zara. They'll have everything you need.

Worry about matching the boots to the belt, not the tie and square.

But kudos to you at 16 for wearing a pocket square.

This is what I'm thinking : medium gray blazer white shirt slim black slacks burgundy ankle boots burgundy knit tie burgundy pocket square black belt What do you think i can do or is that fine? And I know this is a bit obsessive, but that's because my date is a senior.

Definitely match the belt to the shoes. I thought you were getting a suit, now you just want a jacket?

Do not match your tie and pocket square. Ever. Just get a suit. Grey jacket and black pants would look odd if you don't know what you're doing.

My friend, please dont but a suit at H and M or J Crew... they are junk.

So you are growing, so what? Get a 2nd hand suit on ebay for 200$ and it will be 10x better than paying retail. Think of it this way, there are folks here that pay ~$289 for a tie.

You can easily get a nice Zegna or Hickey Freeman for that money and it will be much better fitting. When it doesnt fit any longer, sell it on ebay and you will recoup some dough.

Oh, and forget the slim cut crap, it looks stupid, a bad, bad fad that I hope will die soon.

Get something for 200 and spend 100 on tailoring in some waist suppression and make the pants sit right and you are good to go... and get a real tie, not these skinny, foolishly small knot 'I have a slim penis as well' ties... get a man's tie.

EDIT: What do you think of a knit tie?

shit son you're 16 years old. that guy looks no less than mid 20's. that look is way too old. no knit ties!! get a cheap suit from h&m or zara's or something. i'd go a full black suit. No one expects or wants you to dress overly well. I mean 99.9% of kids are going to go rent a cheap tux for prom. with shiny square toed shoes and like a sateen vest and zipper tie. I mean I did that too when i went to prom (i'm 20 now) If i could go back in time i would have switched out the shoes for something no so square, obviously ditch the zipper tie and garbage vest, for something less douchebagish. find a cheap suit, do some minor alterations. don't spend too much time or money on it. as long as you feel comfortable in it, you just take a couple nice pictures in the beginning, and then go dance and party. if you have a hot girl and you end the night still looking nice you did something really wrong. $400 is way too much to spend, i wouldn't spend more than $150-200. don't buy for quality. buy for what is comfortable and what fits. if you bought a bespoke suit and then get sweat spit booze jizz puke etc on it. that would be a big waste of money. don't scare your date and future dates away dressing like an old man. no one wants to go to prom with a guy dressed like her dad, or someone kids would call gay no offense.

Even at 20 i don't invest in any pricey suits or dress shirts. my shoes are somewhat decent, about midrange. but alot of styles and such people discuss on the forum are for older people, or more settled down people. tastes change. especially when your young. what you wear when ur 16, might drastically change when ur 18.

Remember, an H&M 36r is tiny. I usually wear a 36r as well, however at H&M I wear a 40 or 42

I know its a general rule to match the shoes and belt so what can i do about burgundy colored shoes with a grey suit? I should have black shoes but that'll be another $50+.

I'd like something more like this type of cut http://modeboutique.blogspot.com/200...stym-suit.html

That kind of cut is found at Zara. I know.
