I'm having to go to my lady's prom, I'm not dreading it really until my mother came up to me and said that I should wear a suit jacket and a bow tie...

Now then:

that costs money which I don't have and I'm sure my mum won't pay for it.

The majority of my friends that are going are just wearing shirts and ties.


So would it be ok for me to just wear a smart shirt and tie? It's a damn fine shirt and tie.. comes to about £50 all together. I've never been to a ****ty prom before so I don't know

Well some people are gonna go all out but they're the sort of posh twats... I think I should be ok, I'll just hang around with the people in shirts and ties

Yeah wiggy, just make sure everything is nicely tidy and you'll be settled (and one hot piece of ass, if you pardon my language).
Oh, and let's not forget: Have fun!

Where is your prom??? At ours you had to wear a tux or you got turned away.

But that also could've been because it was put together essentially by these six girls who are straight out of Mean Girls.

I say just wear something sharp. there are tons of ways you can look good without looking "classic" sharp. Here's what i did for a "formal" dinner a few weeks ago: I wore some A&F jeans (like the ripped ones), a white collared shirt, and threw my gold tux vest over it. instant sharp look, money spent? Zero. just run down to your local tux rental shop, rent a vest, throw it over a good shirt, and wear some good-looking jeans.

hire out a suit? if you look out of place, take a tie with you and just take off your jacket.

Shirts and ties fucking rock. Bow ties are for pussies and/or James Bond.

Wow that's commitment man. Although they should let you go. The after party is something to remember being after the formal rather than some ****ty drink up with like 30 people.

A friend of mine went to the prom of a nearby girls' school and said he was the only one wearing a bowtie out of EVERYONE there and he felt like he was the waiter.

So yes, wear the tie!
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.


Confused? Good.

It's mostly for girls. Guys don't get much out of it except maybe a little something something afterwards.

Except for me. I took the open mic during that one song that goes "I'm not gonna write you a love song."
I get very tense around apples...Well, I get very tense generally. I think I've fallen into the trap of blaming fruit.

Screw ties, wear a toga. If it was good enough for Caesar it should be good enough for you.

Wear a suit you schmuck.

Nah I'm guessing it's like the Parkstone Grammar one? In which case shirt and tie is the norm.

my god people! If you're going to a prom you need to wear a tux! And if you dont have one, invest in a quality one, it is an unwritten rule (might be written down somewhere) that every man is required to own AT LEAST one tux.

White tux. Do it

YEAH!!! all white tux, white hat, and a white jeep to match it...and then HEY GUYS, LETS GO MUDDIN' BEFORE PROM!!!

some hicks at my school did that...it was hilarious, that white tux guy showed up with mud splattered up his pants and on the jacket...it didn't look bad, cause it fit his personality better than just a plain white tux.

That's not true, i had a blast at prom, and i didn't do anything but kiss my date afterwards, and i didn't care either. It was just sweet to drive around town all dressed up and visit all our houses, and then go and chill at prom and dance crazy and check out everyone's outfits, and then go and crash at someones house and watch dumb movies until sunrise.

You need a suit, its so damn classy. If everyone just wears a shirt and a tie, you'll separate from the pack in a good way.

If there is a dress code, follow that.
If there isn't, ask her what she wants.
If she doesn't care, just do what your friends are doing.

At least you only need that.
We need full-blown tuxes for ours.
