    fashion question

    So I wear a dark gray suit and I've got a formal this weekend with my fraternity. My girlfriend is wearing a beige and black cocktail dress. I'd like to try and match that, but I have no idea what would be a good way to pull that off with a charcoal suit. Any tie and shirt color ideas?
    I've been here since 2004? I've never felt this old before.

    You should totally wear a salmon shirt with pastel green pants and sperrys brah. Gonna get wasted brah? Can't forget the croakies brah.

    All jokes aside, a shirt that matches her color and a black tie/tie that matches the suit always works.

    metallic pea green cumberbun, orange flip flops, and a sombrero. You can seldom go wrong with a sombrero.

    Ditch the flip flops for some boat shoes

    Never use the word brah again. It is so annoying when people say that.


    Anyways tan tie, black shirt?

    Every passing minute is another chance to turn it all around.

    I dunno, Charcoal suit + black shirt is not a look I am liking. How about a pic of your girlfriends dress? That will help me visualize..

    i agree; the sombrero is a must

    bad news; if this actually is 'formal', then a grey suit doesn't even qualify. be more specific about the upcoming event

    True. Only a Columbian drug dealer can pull off that look.

    I don't know, the last fraternity "formal" I went to (years ago), 70% of the fellas were wearing a blue blazer and khaki pants. I think "fraternity formal" just means no jeans.

    most of us just wear our suits, its not a black tie event.

    The frat jokes are great by the way. Definitely not a played out stereotype that I avoid at all costs. thanks for all the help....all two or three of you that did.
