Either wear something nice for her, or if you want to be audacious, try something you can at least pass off as not out of "Dumb and Dumber" because all it will do is make you out as a jerk.

You could try, if you want to be risky a Kilt bottom (tartan) and a tuxedo top. It would be different, and would stand out, but would be classy rather then emberrassing.

(and what is it with these foolish youth! For pete sake, between this kind of thing and Antonio.. damn boys, where's your lady handling skills!)

I think even though she may say that, if you go through with it, you're going to hurt some feelings.

I once saw a tuxedo that was done up like a sports jersey (i.e. the name and number on the back). Kinda like the SNL skit where Jimmy Falon has Nomars name and number on the back of his prom jacket (in tape), but this one looked professional.

I say get a white tux with glittery pink bow tie, glittery pink cumberbun and glittery pink socks. I say pink in order to match her dress. If you can find a white top-hat with a pink band that'd be cool too. Get a coat with tails. Look for Pink glittery gloves.

If the tux shop is cool, and you got the bod to pull it off, ask that the sleeves be removed from the tux and shirt.

It would be wild, yet not grossly foolish.

Well?????? You can't throw that advice out there using that example and not finish the story. Were the women right or wrong? Millions of casually dressed males are depending on your guidance with this answer! Posted Image

Go with a James Bond-style tux. Slick your hair back like Sean Connery or Pierce Brosnan, and say to your date and the other women, "The name's Torres. Sam Torres." Women love the 007 tux look. Posted Image

Well, if you and your friend are both dressing weird, go for it. Posted Image Although I stand by the idea to include her in your choices, so there won't be any surprises. Posted Image

Have fun!

Ooooo!!!! I just got a GREAT idea, but it requires a LOT of balls...

You wear the prom dress and she wears the tux! Now that would be weird. Posted Image

He mentioned he was "very married" at the time the offer came along, so I'm guessing he passed Posted Image

Mark, I think you've had the best idea in the entire thread Posted Image

That would be correct Ricardo.

But it never hurts to be asked. Posted Image

In any case my point was that men look good in a basic tux --and many women (including ones you don't know) respond appropiatly. Perhaps not so much or so well when dressed in a clown suit.

I may be wrong, but I’m guessing the Cary Grant had more chances than Emmet Kelley. Posted Image

I’ve owned my own tux for many, many years—and will only make the occasional concession by perhaps wearing a bright red or green bow tie at Christmas. Or perhaps a plaid one at the St. Andrews ball.

Even on these few occasions, by wife protests: straight black looks best, says she.

Right, I edited to include glittery pink socks. Gotta have the flair throughout.

Tophat, gloves, tails, and a cane. In either white or a bright color. And to make it all the more fun, a couple of sizes to small so your ankles and a good bit of your forarms show.

One year, I was at a Senior Formal and one very attractive young lady wore what I always refer to as the 'Hocktaler' outfit, from a commercial for that product; tailored tux shirt and jacket (tapered to the waist, and so on) with tails, top hat, high-cut shorts (no idea what you'd call them) and sheer black stockings; very Cabaret like.

Damn. DAMN.

Ok Brian, you got me—I do.

I thought I was making an obscure enough reference that it would pass right by. I momentarily forgot the diversity of the forum membership. On top of which (in reality), my wife always insists on black.
