Suit jacket for prom

6y, 8m agoPosted 6 years, 8 months ago
Got prom coming up in a couple of months to mark the end of compulsory school (Woohoo!) and I've been thinking about what kind of stuff I'll need to be wearing, I'm at the moment looking at a navy or charcoal jacket, both on Asos for only £55 which is a bargain. What colour do people tend to wear though? I thought black would be common so I've steered clear of it so I'm not looking identical to everyone else. Also with sizes, I tried on my older brothers jacket which is a size 34 and seemed to be a bit baggy for me, but I assume it's to do with the type of fit of the jacket rather than just the size, with his being a standard one and the Asos ones being more slim. Is this vaguely right or am I just trying to convince myself that I don't need to shop in the kids section :thumbsup:
Cheers, any help would be appreciated, no clue what I'm doing!

Formal you mean, Americans have proms!

Just rent a suit, go get measured up and try on a few. If you've got a date for the evening, find out her dress colour and pick a matching tie.

If you want to buy a suit, then go try them on. It ain't that hard is it?

Oh, most people wear black suits.

I'd personally if you can buy one in the size you reckon and one larger. Then see what fits best and send the other one back for a refund.
Yeah most will go black, a few blue, some white as well probably. I wore a grandad collar suit to be a little different for my end of school ball which was black, then the following year for sixth form, i wore a normal suit in a dark charcoal (grey).

My favourite was my leaving sixth form ball:

Lol , me thinks DLM is on basic + commission :)


I am thinking of buying some shares :-D

At 7.45pm last saturday night.

I was holding my own M&S sale outside the changing room.

Roll up, roll up, M&S dresses, trousers and skirts £5 and tops £3 etc...

I kept the changing room open especially for 4 ladies who I had got interested.

I think the till operator's hate me when they go to the till at 7.55pm with 10 items when they finish at 8pm :oops:

Errm, thanks guys! Didn't expect any response if I'm honest :-D
Ordered a couple, a dark grey size 36" and a navy size 34". Liked those two because they weren't particularly formal with the one button and I'll just try them both on for a look at the colours and try the sizes.

Why have you just bought a jacket? Are you not wearing any trousers?

Even Burtons use to do them I believe, but they have to get them in specially so they need warning not sure how much though.
I own mine...worth a few pennies, especially the kilt, but I have the sporran, a double tailed jacket, a waistcoat, the sock with 'flappy bits' (cant remember what they called), and i think i still have the shoes i got to go with it.

i rented a suit from burton last year. trousers,jacket,shirt and bow tie. came to about £30 i think. if you live in a town go early rather than later, we had about 4 schools proms around the same time and they were running out.
