    Hello all! New guy here on the SF.

    I did a couple of quick searches about what to wear for prom and what I'm getting is that I should not wear a black jacket?

    My date is wearing a gray dress so I am matching her with a gray skinny tie.
    I already have a nice pair of black pants, black shoes and a white dress shirt so I'm just wondering what color jacket I should go with?

    Gray or Navy or what?

    I don't want to be looking a scrub at Prom.

    Thanks in Advance !!!

    Well now, ideally you would wear a suit. A suit consists of trousers and jacket (and sometimes waistcoat) made out of the same cloth. Get one in navy or charcoal grey. Black suits are frowned upon in these parts. A nice navy or grey one you'll also be able to wear to weddings, funerals, job interviews, court appearances and other important occasions.

    However, it's only a prom and if you don't have to money for a new suit don't sweat it.
