    Anyone actually been to one? Is it a jeans/dress shirt/blazer type event? I'm leaning towards Texas tuxedo as recommended in the email, but does that include bow tie/cummerbund? Never tried wearing Texas Tux before, although I typically do the aforementioned attire for business casual. Don't want to overdo it, but rather overdo than under dress.

    The Ferrari reception in Capri was fairly glitzy, but you can really get away with anything in Austin. You will see everything. Enjoy it!

    Thanks! Just got back. For future reference, the above is correct. Saw everything from slacks and blazers, to suits, to jeans and blazer, and the Texas Tux. It was not super formal, basically just dress well. Nothing would be out of place unless you showed up in shorts or a T-shirt.

    Glad you attended!!

    Now you know, there's a tuxedo bow tie/cumberbund set that IS the Texas flag!
    So that would hit the nail on the head.

    But suit and tie (I forgot I had brought a "Salute to the Spyder" version from the west coast) is fine and the gentlemen that drove his Spyder off, down the hallway was in a leather flight jacket!!

    Good times.

    The legendary Harvey Pennick spent his final years as the Pro there...…...it's a hallowed place in my mind.

    Andy Fish's (our host) father was an early member of the Club.

    There were a few people rocking ascots. Trying to figure out if I can pull that off at 39...

    Next year we can both wear ascots; there's power in numbers, lol! I've been waiting for the right occasion to try one out anyway.
