    I know it's a little early to be looking for a suit for my yr 11 prom but I'm hella excited for all the bits about prom except the actual thing ( I'm awkward af, so I should also have a hell of a time asking a girl to go with me haha).

    I'm skinny af 6'2" (probs 6'3" by the actual thing smh), am white and have blond hair. How do you think this would suit me and do you think it looks good? If anyone has any other ideas for what I could wear I'd be happy to hear them.

    Would wear a double cuffed shirt. What sort of cufflinks should I wear and should I wear a white or light blue shirt?

    Best brown shoes I could find in a 13

    This is the closest I could find online, but I have a silvery blue cool floral tie (it looks nicer than the moss one).

    Is this one too feminine?

    Thanks in advance

    Wait...boys worry about what they wear to prom, I don't think you can go drastically wrong in a suit.

    Haha. Maybe I'm overthinking it, but I don't dress up very often and I want to be able to look back and know I looked banging.

    Plus, I doubt I'll enjoy the night itself, so I want to wear something I'll feel excited about.

    Do what we girls do which boys hate, go shopping, trying things on to see if they're comfy and photos can be photoshopped so buying online isn't the best idea. Also buy something you could wear again. Prom is fun, but don't stress about it to much.

    R any of your friends going? Prom is mostly just a last hurray before people leave. Do you guys have an afterparty and are you organising Prom or the school?

    BTW it's not too early, I already have my dress as do many girls. At least you don't have to worry about hair too much as well :lol:

    Yh I have friends going and at least one of them won't go with a date which takes the pressure off a little bit I guess. There's some prom committee that organises and there will be an after-party. I'm just rather introverted and not a big partier, however I'm sure it won't be as bad as I expect.

    Thanks, I appreciate the positivity. I like to think the guy looks like a considerably less attractive version of myself. Oh yes, it's not just my upbeat nature and fantastic sense of humour I have going for me.

    Go for something different, stand out!
    I have dark hair so different things work better for me than they would for you, but how about Black suit + shoes w/bright red shirt

    I really like the suit , not sure if the blue tie and blue pocket square goes, may be too much light blue- especially if you decide on wearing a light blue shirt (which looks nice in the picture), would maybe consider another pastel/light colour for the tie and pocket square?

    Hey George.. May I ask if you have any theme for the party. If yes, choose the dress as per your theme.
