Hey hey! Sorry to pester you with such a trivial question.
I'll be heading to a banquet at the end of the month. The colors we are supposed to wear are Black, White, and Gold. We have been asked to at least wear two of the 3 colors, but extra brownie points to those who utilize all 3.

The Gold is that part that scares me. Now, I can cop out and go with the never-failing-black & white classic. But I kinda want to go above and beyond and go gold...without being gaudy.

I was thinking black pants, white shirt and gold tie. Someone suggested black tie and gold pocket square. Then I started hearing things about suspenders, vest yadda yadda. What do you think? Help!

A gold-toned waistcoat could be done well. Otherwise I'd go with your tie/square option.

You could be playful with the socks, too.

+1 on the pocketsquare

It will be alot less severe than a gold tie or gold vest.
