I'm on about our matriculation dinner, I also wore it for the matric photo, thought my parents would prefer it then, seeing as they were the ones getting the photo.

Wait, it's OK to wear black tie to matriculation? Wouldn't you look slightly out of place with everyone else in daysuits? (get me trying to sound like I know what I'm talking about).
I only ask cos I dont know what to wear for matriculation
Trinity has a freshers' formal on the Sunday, where you first experience formal and, if you wish, sit opposite the chplain, get hideously drunk then (not despite but because of this performance) get invited to help with the Christmas carol service. The next morning you have your matric photo, then about 3 weeks later you have matriculation dinner, which I think most people turned up to in black tie, which is really good and you finish off with 20+ year old port, it's all good.

The general discussion here is on people's preferences, I can't think of anywhere here where I noticed or someone looked down upon someone for being off the dress code on a minor point.
Generally, all you need for Cambridge is a lounge suit, although Black Tie/Dinner Jacket can be useful, almost all if not all black tie events people attend out of choice, and no-one is usually too specific. That isn't really being terribly fussy now.
