    Found this forum while searching around for ideas for a christmas party, seems like a wealth of information on here, can't wait to start exploring it.. Open to any suggestions. Semi formal event..

    Currently thinking a grey suit, brown shoes, possible red tie? Hoping the brown will get away from the normal gray suit, black shoes and stand out a little or is that a bad idea?


    Date will be wearing an indigo dress if that helps.

    I wouldn't wear brown shoes with a grey suit personally.

    I could not agree less...brown and grey look awesome together.

    +1. Dark brown looks great with a gray suit.

    Get a pair of corduroy pants with christmas trees embroidered on them and wear them with a tweed jacket. Unless it is a strictly suit and tie affair, then what you're planning sounds nice.

    Whatever you do, don't drink too much because you'll end up thinking these are all beautiful people that you have overlooked and before you know it you could possibly talk too much and possibly make an ass out of yourself. The next day you'll be fired by the same beautiful people who will all share a laugh about the clown who used to work there...you know, the clown at the Christmas party. ;) Firings are done whimsically these days so dress conservatively, behave conservatively, and while flying under their radar, quielty have a great time.

    They served Spam at your Christmas parties? Try to be of good cheer. It is the time of miracles.
