Default ARGH, Boyfriend hates to dress up

So what do we do about the formal night? We are going on the Destiny in August, I'm so excited. Anyway, the most I can get him to wear is something like this:

I think the real problem though is him wearing a tie. Can he get away without one on formal night or am I going to have to fight him to wear a tie?

I believe you could probably slid him through dressed as the ad shows. Bring a tie though, just in case.

Thanks
BTW, I should also mention the suit would be a dark color like black or navy blue.

On Carnival, he could get in the formal night wearing a jock strap and spatz. It seems Carnivals REAL definition of formal is anything, as long as its not shorts.

[/b] OK thanks for the input. I won't have to worry about him just wearing a jock strap though.

The Cruise Guy is so correct Free 72! Here I am, lugging a suit on the plane and taxis to wear on the formal nights and I look around and see some of the guys wearing golf shirts or dress shirts with no ties. 90% of the guys are looking good in their suits or sport coats, but its the other 10% or so. I don't like suits either but it does not kill me to wear it. Right after dinner, I get changed and then head to watch the entertainment.
No jock strap for me either. Never had a plate crash right on me there yet.

Free72....Here is the way around not wearing a tie. Have him wear a collarless dress shirt. They are often dressy enough. Plus, no way to wear one.

Free72 - could you get him to wear a mandarin or collar-less dress shirt? They can be very dressy,my son wore one with his tux to his senior prom, and he looked very snazzy.

If he's not dressing for you now as a boyfriend, watch out!

I hate shoppping but every once in a while I'll do it because my wife enjoys it. I think they call it a partnership thing or something...

I see nothing wrong with wearing what was in the picture on formal night. I think that it would be quite appropriate for a Carnival formal night.
