Wear a black blazer, black pants, black polished dress shoes, a blue bow-tie(much better than a tie). also if you want, wear a fedora.

Is it some tradition that you match your date's dress color?

I don't wanna go looking like a faux-Cam'Ron (purple/pink).

don't be all matchy matchy with your date and shit. shit's faggety, you'll take that shit off anyways.

the basics son. 007 status.

black bowtie.
white or black suspenders.
black one button suit with peak lapel.
black cummerbund (optional).

trust me, you'll be the only one without the vest. once it gets all hot and sweaty from dancing you won't have to take off the vest and risk losing it. plus you'll stand out by being one of like two people who are wearing suspenders. all the other peeps gonna be wearing plain tux shirts.

less clothes to get rid of.

The most important thing when copping a tux is the fit. If it fits good it'll look good, get a two button or one button because 3 button is Wall Street. Slim tie or bow tie is what I'd go for. Satin Lapels are also a nice touch. But like I said the fit is key.

cosign with this. when i'm getting fitted for it i'm gonna straight up tell them "i want a james bond fit"

vests are too cliche. if i'll match anything with my date anyways it'd be a pocket square, MAYBE the tie.

do and Donts

Dont....
wear sneakers or fitted hats.

clip on ties or bow ties very cheap and cheesy

dont google other prom pics to get idea be unique

dont get suit spray painted or bedazzeled

dont get a suit jacket that hangs to your knees ppl in the ghetto do that and swear they are cool..their not.

dont wait till last minute start today so a week before prom you will have everything ready

Do...
care about detail because every little bit counts

pocket square

shoes have to stand out not flushed in with pants(dont wear black shoes with black pants)

bow tie is more of a mature look mostly when you do it yourself

color of the buttons

collar of oxford know the difference and which 1 you want

cuflink that are clean but different

have a corsage for date

also know your spending limit but remember you have 1 prom of a lifetime live it up and have fun o yeah prom weekend is the best too!! if u have work call out go party and get wasted!! lmao

if you have any other questions PM i have plenty prom ideas too and know alot of sources
