Over the last 3 to 4 years there has been a seismic shift in the way people dress for their debs. If you look at any Graduation photo from 5 years ago, everyone, to a man is wearing a black tux in tandem with a standard black bow and while this look is timeless and looks great there was no hint of individuality. The Debs now represents an opportunity for young men to express their originality and showcase their own style. The more unique you are the better these days. From simple navy 3 pieces to burgundy tweeds, anything is on the table. Standard looks like a navy suit can be spruced up with the addition of a contrast waistcoat as seen in the photo above.
