What image comes to mind when picturing a typical teenage boy getting ready for his formal? A scruffy guy with his shirt untucked and his tie loose? Someone being followed around by his mum, fussing over his hair and wiping his face. A guy who spends right up til the last second on the couch in his underwear? Well these days may finally be over. Today, it’s standard for guys to put more effort into their appearance, and it’s not uncommon for them to spend as much time planning and worrying about their formal look as their partners.
Chuck Bass has set the standard for stylish teens the world over. Mad Men made wearing suits cool. The bar has been raised, and manscaping is now part of life. It’s refreshing to see guys with washed and styled hair, clean fingernails, and maintained eyebrows on a daily basis. And the influx of prom films shows that guys from all walks of life—the jocks, the nerds, the bad boys—look even better when they get dressed up.
It’s difficult to know whether an increase in formalwear choices has made boys become interested, or if the interest itself has generated a need for more formalwear options. Either way, it seems it’s no longer acceptable to simply wear a suit that’s clean, pressed and actually fits. More and more guys are enjoying the process of putting effort into their look, and having fun planning for their big night.
F Gear is one company which provides formalwear for guys. Their suits and accessories can be bought or hired, and are found in many formal and bridal stores around Australia. They deliver endless possibilities, with an inspirational “look book” to get guys thinking about their own personal style and how they want to present themselves at their formal.
“Whether you are looking to steal the show, get the girl or just have fun at your next formal event, F Gear will make it happen with the latest fashion in suits and accessories.”
When it comes down to it, guys, if you look good, you feel good. Formal night should be about being happy, confident and self-assured. And when you think of your formal photos lasting a lifetime (not to mention being posted on Facebook the very next day), it pays to put a little extra effort into your appearance. And of course, the girls will love it!
