    Question- Not serious but urgent

    Ok, I have a 'black tie' event tonight and I leave the house in 2 hours.

    However, I and a number of others are not wearing 'black tie' but suits.

    Ive decided to wear a black suit but I cant figure out what shirt to wear.

    I have other options (which Ill consider if others suggest them) but have narrowed it down to 2 options.

    Black suit/black shirt- I like it but it is also what many teenagers at prom wear and that it can look terrible.

    Black suit/white shirt- Dont like it as much and I wear a white shirt every day for work but prob more appropriate.

    My issue is that I have about 15 white shirts for work but that is what they are, work shirts. If I wear an undershirt then it will be visable and there is no need for cuff-links.

    Im debating the pin-striped shirt option but I think it looks ****.

    If I wear the black shirt I will look like a kid and if I wear a white shirt it will look like school uniform

    I probably should have thought of this earlier.

    Dale (if I may), I might disagree with a lot of your politics and cricket views (bare with me I am drunk) but you were 100% correct on this.

    I seriously considered the advice and it was spot on.

    Should have worn black tie man.

    How often do you get to rip out the tux?

    I could do it fairly often but I generally avoid such events. However, last night was the St. Partricks Ball so no matter who was there (community leaders, Ambassadors, top business people) it was allowable to get very drunk and act around.

    This is where I add that after getting home at 4am and having a bellyfull of all the free wine, beer and whisky I could handle, we lost 5-3 at soccer today. Hard day at the footballing office

    What exactly is the difference between "black tie" and "suit"? As far as I can tell the only difference is bowtie/necktie, and the (increasingly optional) cummerbund. Otherwise it's just shirt, jacket, pants, shoes, innit?

    Cummerbunds have to be the worst thing ever, right up there with gang rape and genocide

    That night, fate wore a cummerbund...of suspense.
