    Business formal is an oxymoron. Formal refers to black or white tie, typically eveningwear, while business attire is by definition informal.

    Anyone throwing a banquet - typically an evening social event - that demands either the oxymoronic "business formal" or ordinary business daywear obviously doesn't know what the heck they're doing, so the rules are probably irrelevant and you can wear whatever you want. I would interpret this sort of situation as appropriate for cocktail attire.

    Thanks Guys.
    This helps. I will stick to a suit for those and think if I can justify adding another casual blazer to the overfilled closet for less formal occasions.
    Cheers

    Agree with this. 99% of people in the real world won't notice the weave. But I wouldn't wear a light grey blazer with patch pockets to a "formal" event.

    Linen blends are pretty informal.

    Hopsack for formal events?

    I am love the look of a light grey blazer with a navy vest. I see a few nice blazers on sale right now, but with the season they are open weaves (like hopsacks).
    If I pull the trigger now, can you wear an open weave blazer to a formal event?
