Default What do people wear to funerals

Seriously, I have no fucking idea.

Do I wear all black or what? I haven't been to a funeral since I was 14!

Lil help?

dark suit. black if it is a very formal type of family, but dark grey is ok too.

I've only got a black suit and a blue one that is pinstripes and I'd look like an asshole in.

So I will wear the black.

just for teh record, i disagree that a black suit and tie with a white shirt is the only thing you can wear. i've been to several funerals and have worn other options, and not been anywhere close to being the only one to do so. grey suits, charcoal suits, dark coloured shirts and ties...

OK, Ok.... maybe i should clarify that i agree other options (dark colours) are fine. BLack is definitely the most common choice.

I've always equated black with mourning, so for me personally, that's all i would choose to wear.

I could also see how some people may not have a black suit....

Really any decent suit will do. Just dont wear anything that will grab any attention. Like a colourful tie or fancy shirt...or a white tux.

You're there to pay respects, not grab headlines.

EDIT: I cant wait fir Acie's funeral! Gonna be a shindig!

all black, nothing standout like a coloured belt or tie, shirt black as well, try to be as conservative as possible.

who died?

If Family rock a nice suit, who cares the colour unless yoou are a paulbearer(in which case black)

If a close friend same rules as family.

If a distant relative or friend then slacks and a shirt is fine, no tie.

A friend of mine from the softball team just kind of decided that living wasn't really for him.....

I won't be anyone big at the thing, just another friend. So I'll go mainly black, see what I've got tonight. Funeral is wednesday so I've got a bit of time.

Wow sorry to hear that, dude. I've always worn either black or grey (light or dark grey).

I play in 2... I played in the TCSSC league on Sunday nights

Also played for this other league on Tuesday....No idea what the story is behind it but some of the opposition are pretty hilarious.

There is a team full of deaf guys! It's fucked up man! They never make noise, have you ever played against opponents like that? It really screws with your head!
