    I came across this outfit while browsing and it looks awesome-I have a university (formal) ball coming up in a month and I was wondering if something like this is appropriate? Thanx

    If it's a costume ball, and you want to look like a fool, it's certainly appropriate. You could only really wear that to a university event, even a Greek event, as a joke.

    If you think this looks awesome, I really don't know what to say. That is about as miserable as outfits get.

    Theres a lot wrong. Firstly evening dress universally follows set rules, this outfit breaks most of them.
    I ain't sure if the guy is wearing a bow tie, but lets suppose he is.
    * If wearing a bow tie you need braces (suspenders) not a belt, together with a cummerbund or a waistcoat and the collar must be winged or heavily cut-back.
    * The fit of the pants is terrible
    * The jacket .....no comment
    * The shoes look like training shoes, allowable black Oxfords, velvet slippers or patent leather

    The dress code here might work with a black silk tie with no jacket and no shoes, although technically you're not supposed to remove the jacket and walking around barefoot would be a bit silly.

    ... oh and there should be a stripe of silk running down the pants and the lapels should also be silked, but that would be a complete waste of good silk.

    and the shirt sleeves are 1/2'' too long.

    .. whoever made that outfit needs to be clad in a bright orange jump suit (or black/white horizontal stripes) complemented with wrist and ankle shackles.

    If you're going to be working as the waiter or bartender, then it works fine.

    It would look nice on the mascot. Is your mascot a goat? It would be stunning on a goat.

    Well, no. It could be powder blue.

    Fancy dress party but an insult to your hosts otherwise.

    It looks like some kind of waiter's outfit.

    No.... Just no...

    With a jacket that short and the rest of whatever the heck you would say is going on there, you can't look like anything other than a metrosexual matador.
