Do: Go and get fitted so your suit fits you like its suppose to.
You’ll want to physically go in and get fitted before you buy a suit or Tux. Make an appointment with a professional clothier to help you find a suit that fits you perfectly. This wont cost your extra, and will reap you rewards with your date and your crew when you show up looking super sharp in a suit that makes you look like a style God. So whatever you do, go in and get fitted so that the style fits you just right!
DO: Get your tux or suit on time
You don’t want to wait until the last minute to get everything you need for formal! Give yourself at least a few weeks to go out and find what you need to look your best. Maybe even start looking months before the formal. This will give you lots of time to try on different styles and make any adjustments that will be needed to make it fit you like a glove!
DO: Take time to break in new shoes
If you’re wearing new dress shoes for your formal, you will want to break them in so that they're comfy and won’t give you blisters. Wear them the week before the formal to break them in so that you can dance the night away without doing the new shoe blister shuffle.
DO: Tie your own tie with the perfect knot.
Every man can tie a tie, but with the perfect knot is essential. Now's the time to learn! A great tie knot shows everyone else, you know the rules of style. Think of it as a rite of passage as the leader of the style pack. Spend time learning how to do it by going online and watching tutorials or ask someone in your family to teach you.
DON’T: Wear sneakers
No matter how cool you want to look, never wear sneakers to a formal! Wear the right dress shoes.
DON'T: Over do it when it comes to accessories
Sure you want to look good, but don’t overdo it and wear all the accessories. You’ll want to leave your can and top hat in the limo and ease up on bright colors. And it’s best that you leave the color pink to your date!
