I'm attending a formal event later this month, and will be wearing a one button peak lapel dealie with white flower brocade vest and black bowtie. I may go ahead with a black cummerbund instead, but since this is a dance that I'll be around a bunch of other young people with, I don't need to be that traditional (read: boring). Just dignified. So, I wonder, would a white linen handkerchief look bad? I remember Sean Connery pulled them off on a dinner suit with a certain amount of dignity.
