At chino, it is just kinda whatever, as long as it is a shirt and tie. However, I suggest some type of uniformity, like all wear black with a white tie, and girls wear all black or somethin...Get what I am saying?

We wear all black and ties.... each person's tie color is different depending on their section...

Usually it's a nice looking outfit, not street clothes(obviously), like TMRsaxyDM said we usually do long sleeve button down shirt and a tie, but your section can organize something together to match, like with the trumpets we've worn like matching colors and worn suspenders. It's really up to you guys.

We normally just wear tuxes, or white shirts and black pants, it depends on where we are performing and what it is for.

I like SCTOOBA's iddea, sounds coo. But we wear long sleeve tees, short sleeve, or polo's depending on weather and formality(not a HS jazz band).

black pants with a custom red jacket that has a 'westminster' patch on the sleeve.

Typically, the Lab group wears white on black, guys usually wear a tie, girls can too. The Big Band wears all black, guys wear ties.
This year, though, we're considering using last years drumline costumes (black tuxedo pants and long sleeve black dress shirt with maroon vest). It'll be cool

Jazz can be a little more creative, but keep it professional and uniform.

I like the bowling shirt thing. :D
