How to Dress for a Formal Occasion

Here's what Howard Trevor Jacobs wore to accept the Descartes prize:

"It is the latest kit for any self-respecting world-ranking scientist: Ramones T-shirt, kilt, bovver boots, leather jacket, ear studs, shaven head, Tintin tuft, and optional wrap-round shades. Without it, you would feel underdressed."

I may try this in front of one of my classes... except I'm not a big Ramones fan. Can I wear a Metallica T-shirt? I think I'll wear clip-on ear studs cuz I ain't gonna pierce my ears.

I tried to find a pic, but couldn't. You can read more here in the Guradian Unlimited.
