Dude, formals mean evening attire. Tuxedos and cummerbunds.

What you speak of is business attire. Quit complaining and dress appropriately so you can find a job. You need to have a job at 0 F 25 F or 50 F, even if the temperature is 100F. In other words, all times

OK, I admit the error. I should have mentioned business attire. But either way, guys need to put on 3 layers of clothes for career fairs (suit jacket, white shirt, an undershirt, polished black shoes, black socks, and a tie) and doing this is uncomfortable in sweltering heat. This is the way every student I have seen most students in the career fair dress up, regardless of temperatures. Hence, I follow the same code.

I will deal with it. No problem. Just a bit annoying and uncomfortable, but that's no biggie. I have worked in India with business attire before, and just sucked up the heat + humidity though it was annoying.

That's what you need to get a job.

I have worked in India too and I did not wear a suit jacket. Just wore ties and it was optional.

Completely different country and nobody mandates a suit because it burns people into ash.

But Jersey is the opposite and in a couple weeks, you are going to be freezing and you need to layer up.

Also, in this side of the planet, you have to suit up to get a job and be taken seriously. Don't go around like the guindian/desi mofos in Jackson Heights or Floral Park You don't want to be associated with either demographic.

That is my favorite part about formal events in Western NY, all the pretty and fun fur coats come out. I personally don't wear fur but they are still beautiful on the right woman.

First off, I am not Desi. I lived in South India all my life and have been up north only once. I know next to nothing about what happens in north India outside New Delhi and Mumbai.

Second, I have never dressed up that way. I wear proper suit + tie with a white shirt and black pants when I go to career fairs. I just don't feel comfortable doing so, but have to if I need a job. Requirement shadows comfort in this situation.

Formal wear is never annoying to me!

I'm a female who LIVES to get dressed up. The temperature outside doesn't affect my love of serving up glam.

You don't have a choice to pick who you are, compadres You can run but you can't hide.

Urban Dictionary: desi

So it seems that you already wear suit + tie. Just don't pick them from Kohl's.
