showhide_answerWhat should I wear for the banquet?

We have been asked about dress code for the banquet. We don't want to make any strict rules, and no-one will be turned away for wearing a tracksuit, but for those who want to enjoy the full "Oxford experience" the following guidelines might help:

Lounge Suit/Smart

Men: Generally a dark suit (matching jacket and trousers), collared shirt, tie required (not bow tie), black shoes preferable

Women: Cocktail dress (length just above the knee to just above the ankle)

Black Tie (Dr Aiden Doherty has promised to do his best James Bond impression)

Men: Black silk or satin bow tie, black tuxedo (satin or silk lapels on jacket and ribbon seam on outside leg of trousers to match jacket), white dress shirt (with cufflinks), black shoes (preferably lace up). A waistcoat or cummerbund can also be worn. Formal national dress is also suitable for this occasion.

Women: A long flowing dress or a cocktail dress. Typically more elegant than that worn for a lounge suit dress code. Typical materials include chiffon, velvet, satin and silk. At balls a long ball gown is appropriate.
