Err, isn't it black tie? In which case number 2 - black suit (Tux is better), white shirt, black tie (bow tie is better) and lose the waistcoat.
Number 3 looks like something you'd wear to 6th form or work and Number 1 is really tacky and something people on Jersey Shore would wear.

I think 3 is too businessman like. You just need a briefcase and people will be trying to talk to you about their personal injury claims or the APR on their loan. I personally like 2 for a prom. Its a classic.

I agree.

Go for the second one OP.

I'd go with a *different* black suit, white shirt and black bow tie. That way it's appropriate for other black tie events (which you will have to attend if you work in an office) and you could also wear the suit with a different tie for your actual graduation . Not a fan of the waistcoat - they always make me think of waiters and funerals...

That said, I do like the light grey suit in general, but it's more of a day suit for work really.

Fair enough, your opinion
Everyone has different taste so yeah. It's all good.
Big difference in being a tool and looking like a tool :P

If the dress code is black tie, then go for the second one without the waistcoat. The third one looks like a business suit to me, and forget the first one. Who would wear a black shirt with a white tie?

What does the dress code actually say? If it says 'black tie', it means a dinner suit and bow tie. If it's just 'smart' you can wear a normal suit but please choose a more colourful tie. If it's 'smart casual' you can lose the tie, and probably the jacket too.

But please do check the dress code, you can't just wear whatever you like to these things.

I don't really like black shirts, go for white shirt with grey/black suit and then either a black tie or some sort of fun but classy tie

Then he should be at least wearing a proper smoking... (EDIT: I meant a tuxedo ofc)


@TO is that your first suit? If so, why not buy great fitting navy blue PLAIN 2 button suit, white shirt and a basic that, (please NOT in black).

Blue is the most versatile suit you will EVER own. So it is perfect for a first one. It takes you to invertviews, to the office and to prom.

Black, on the other, will only work in formal events like proms and funerals. Gray is also a good choice and will be the second most versatile suit you will ever wear. However, for a first suit I'd definitely go for a dark navy.

You do realise 'black tie' means dinner jacket and bow tie, not an informal suit with a black necktie...

I wore a grey suit to my prom, and I looked pretty hot.

Graduation Prom soon- thinking to buy a slim fit suit

should I go for:

1.) a black suit, black shirt, black shoes and white tie

OR

2.) a black suit, white shirt, black shoes and black tie

OR

3.) Grey suit, white shirt, black shoes and black tie - currently my favourite!


Any suggestions please. [pics below of the ones i mean !]
If you want to look upper class you're doing it wrong. Definitely avoid the first one, it'd make you look like a pimp to say the least.

Under no circumstances do the first one :lolwut: Unless you want to be that guy :ninja:

Just do bow tie, black suit and slim brogues (as long as you are also slim obviously).

If the proms in the UK are like the ones here, he will fit in perfectly in a standard suit. I agree with you, that he should wear a dinner jacket or a smoking, but then not everyone has the money for a smoking. It may even be, that he doesn't even have a suit yet. So investing in a smoking - or a dinner jacket at that - would probably too much.
