  1. Cute! I love that first one! It's my dream man look - James BOND! My date wore a fairly hilarious burgandy jacket to our Prom. You should see the photos!

  2. I like Number One. Classic look that makes all guys look super suave.

  3. Yep, I like the classic look of number one also. Very sophisticated. Good look when it's matching a girl's formal.

  4. Thank you for adding my vintage men's shoes to your prom collection. Very cute overall look too. Very...James Bond!



  5. i like the last 2- they are both super original-looking and not over-the-top...
    actually the last one reminds me a lot of jamie oliver.. whom i'll admit i have a bit of a crush on :)

  6. One year my sister's date wore a tuxedo that had shorts instead of long pants. Black with the satin stripe down the sides. I have to say he looked ridiculous.

  7. I love the looks you've put together, by the way.
    I'd love to get all dressed up for a date again...

  8. MMMMMHMMMM! I'd take any of these looks with me to the PROM. And I also love Jamie Oliver, OfftheHOoks. He WOULD look great in that last outfit!

  9. I'm sort of traditional...I'd go with number one!

  10. I love the wind turbine tie.

  11. Such cool stuff... it almost makes me wish I was a boy. Thanks for including my Foxhunt Gadget Bag!
