Ah, the sweet dilemma of what to wear on the first date! Should you opt for the security of a tailor made suit, or venture into uncharted waters with a more casual look?
You can’t control all the factors of a first date, since everyone is unique in tastes, opinions or hobbies, but you can control your image. Here’s how to nail it and stack the cards in your favour when you step out for that first date. Just follow these simple do’s and don’ts, and you’ll always feel comfortable on any first date.
Wear tailored suits unless you are attending a dress code specific event that specifies formal or casual attire.
A well-made custom suitgives you these advantages:
Also, always match socks and shoes to trousers colors. You’ll earn “extra points” with your date if your shoes are polished to a high shine.
If you must dress casual, but don’t have time to change, soften the look of your suit by taking off your tie, unbuttoning the top button of your suit, and ditching your suit jacket.
Lastly, make sure you and your date are on the same page regarding dress code. This ensures she has the right impression of what the date is going to be like. For example, if you're heading to a formal location, she would feel uncomfortable attending it in a more casual outfit.
