I have a wedding coming up this weeking (attending, not hitching) and have always wanted to dabble in the ascot realm. I'm neither royalty nor of nobility, but I've always appreciated the ascot and have heard Glenn O'Brien, amongst others, refer to it as a piece both casual and formal, and often a bridge out of being too casual or too formal in a variety of situations. So my questions to the community that is SF: Are ascots, in this particular day and age, still conceivable as neckwear? and Is an ascot too casual for a wedding (the attire is not specified as it is a multicultural wedding in which there will be traditional vietnamese garbs along with suits, ties, etc)? and Does the ascot scream: "Look at me! I'm trying to be Bruce Wayne in the third film, you know, the one in which he wears the really fancy pajamas!"? My swagger/confidence isn't a point of concern, but I do like to remain within a certain spectrum of current style, much like the resurgance of the double breasted jacket would make it acceptable this year, but would have raised a few eyebrows a few years back. Thanks for any input on the matter!
