Be cool.

While attending a formal event with my wife this weekend, I noticed that she, in her sleeveless gown, was at a comfortable temperature during dinner. She even mentioned being a bit chilly at one point. Meanwhile, I was pretty warm and even perspiring slightly. A sleeveless tuxedo would have fit the bill perfectly... a nice, formal look with the vest and bow tie, with the sleeveless jacket and shirt providing plenty of air circulation over the arms and in through the generous arm holes.

Sleeveless Tuxedo Shirt
Just cut the arms off your jacket. [Cedar Park, Oct 04 2004, last modified Oct 05 2004]

I've heard of perspiration.

Nah... not quite what I had in mind. Obviously you could disrobe until you were cooler, but then you're "out of uniform," so to speak. I was thinking of a full ensemble, including jacket, that simply had no sleeves. That way you're cool right from the start without having to leave pieces of clothing strewn about the ballroom/soiree/prom/whatever.

The first guy over the age of six that get's caught in Texas wearing short trouser's with a dinner jacket, will likely not see seven. Who told you that, PeterSealy????

Mortisha's ( does a sleeveless formal coat ... Very nice and fits the bill exactly.

Can you keep the sleeves but make the fabric out of space-age air circulating material?
