    Question What does a guy wear to a college formal ball?

    Hi,

    Just as the title reads, what does a guy wear to a college formal ball. Some say a tux, some pictures I see online have just like casual average suit with a tie, or just s shirt and tie.

    Hmmm

    If its a formal college ball, I'd venture to say that a shirt and tie would suffice, however I wouldn't be surprised if there were people sporting blazers or tuxes.

    Bottom line, see what your friends are doing, but I'd guess a shirt and tie with a jacket would be perfect.

    In my high school, there are various types of dances. For formal dances, we get all fancy with suits/tuxes and limos and such. Just ask your friends there.

    Go with a black tux. They are never wrong.

    And if you do, be prepared to lose it quite quickly! Mine normally comes off after about 10 minutes and most of the time I never see if again...
