    The other choice, if you are Scottish, is to wear the full kilt regalia. My husband loves wearing his and he is always the star attraction especially if there are lots of Americans onboard. Not much chance of him doing so in future due to the weight restrictions on baggage allowance as it weighs a ton.

The reason I ask is DH has his Dinner Suit (or Tux if you prefer) but on reading several posts on the subject it seems that men are opting for just dark suit with tie rather than bow tie.

          Can you tell me which you prefer and frankly which one is less likely to make my DH look like a complete spanner!

          Sorry to bring the board down to gutter level, but I personally fancy the pants off the old man in his Dinner Suit!! Oh he is 40 if that makes a difference (to wearing the suit, not me fancying him!!)

          We went on Cunard as we quite like the formal side of things, and the chance to get all dolled up! So for me it was DJ on the four formal nights. And yes, almost everyone seemed to dress up and looked smart. Only one chap wore a lounge suit on formal night that I noticed, and we only saw him on the first one. I took a change of bow tie for the four varied themes of the formal evenings!!!

          Dont forget though, its a holiday, not a punishment. There are no Cunard Dress Police out and about. Those few passengers that didn't want to wear a DJ were catered for in the Lido etc, which remained informal enough for any tastes.

            Dress code for formal nights differs according to the line. On MSC you'd have stuck out like a sore thumb wearing a DJ. Almost all men wore dark suits. Just a few wore long sleeved shirts and ties.

              A full Tux is absolutely right on some ships/lines and a little overdressed on others!

                A DJ. My OH is 65. silver haired and all that. But it takes me back to 1967 whatever he wore then he looked the bees knees. Now we are so comfy together we sometimes let ourselves go. Me included. Love the formal nights. I love him in his DJ. He says I look fantastic in my sparkly dresses. We all should make an effort. Lifes to short. This year has flown by.;)

                    I defy any man not to look gorgeous in a tux. Really, it makes even the least attractive bloke look stunning.

                        Very nice tartan. Mine is Buchanan which I'm not so fond of, but on the Navigator in 2007 there were a father and son dressed resplendidly in Buchanan tartan and they looked smashing. Joan Happy cruising.
