For all other is expected to wear a darker color clothing and the opinion is that flashy colors and provocative style is not appropriate. Many choose classic garments such as a jacket or a suit, and men should wear black or tan tie. It is important that clothing is consistent to the event, and to express respect and seriousness, which should be more important than personal comfort to participants of the funeral.
