OK, 10 year class reunion tomorrow night. Relatively nice banquet hall, then who knows what afterword. Suit too fancy, jeans to casual. What should I wear?

Seriously though, dress in something that allows you to ratchet up or down the formality depending on what everyone else is going.

I suggest khakis, a solid long-sleeve button down, navy sports coat and tie. That is the most formal I think you would need for a HS reunion- if it turns out that it is more casual, then you can lose the tie and then the jacket and the outfit becomes that much more casual.
I don't have a navy sport coat, but I do have a gray one. I think I'll pair that with a light blue shirt, tie, and khakis. Thanks for the advice.
That sounds appropriate.

Or you could wear a T-shirt with a very inappropriate slogan.
I'm almost willing to bet there will be several T-shirts there with large, if not inappropriate, slogans.
How about a Tuxedo T?
Great question. I would say that in general it is better to be over dressed than underdressed. I have my 20 year reunion this November. I will be wearing a suit.
I always say "I can't always be the best looking but I can always be the best dressed!"
Wife is still deciding if we are going to go to her 10 year this year. If we do, I'll probably just wear some nice khaki's and a button down shirt(I like Tommy Bahama style stuff so it would be like that, short sleeve untucked). Same thing if my 10 year was coming up.
I suggest you wear a cowboy hat and a space suit along with some nice bling so you can say your a rapping cowboy in space.
That's my backup in case the sport coat does not workout.
Go naked! That'll show 'em!

:D

I skipped my tenth, as none of us were fully independent of one another-that high school thing still happens then. I am highly suggesting that you DO break down and wear a tuxedo and perhaps try and get A bow and cummerbund in your school colors. My hs was orange and black so it was veery easy. An Orange bow tie and cummerbund with the black tux and guess what? I won for best dressed. So, buck the trend to go casual and dress up instead. You may just impress your fellow class members more than you know! BTW-that reunion for me was the 30th one and I'm not sure in light of Internet and Facebook and all if a 40th will happen, but if it does, it'll be formal for me all the way!

Jeans with a suit coat :D

Sorry, I'm from Oregon, where that is a completely legitimate way to dress formal and casual all at the same time... It's even better if you have a plaid patterned, or other work style shirt to go with.
