Fellas can we please stop this. First of all, it’s Saturday night, you’ve have had the whole damn day to wash a pair of jeans and find or buy a big boy shirt with a collar and buttons. If that’s too much at least opt for a polo, and not one that has an Under Amour or Nike logo. And let me add it really should be clean and have no wrinkles. Your date will look great no doubt in a nice outfit she spent at least 60 minutes thinking about.
No big deal … your probably thinking, “I mean she still went out with me” ; Yeah she did but what the hell was she going to do at 8:30 on Saturday night, she has to you’re standing at the door, it would be really rude to just slam the door in your face change in some more comfy and order take out Chinese. But it is a lock she debated it for about 20 secs. That was the akward pause when she answered the door. Now you know. Replay the greeting at the door, that awkward pause was her deciding how hungry she really was vs being seen with a grown version of a 7th grader.
So do me a favor and even more so do here a favor and for the second date please wear jeans and that big boy shirt you got for graduation. If you really want that third date, or just some respect from the rest of us (you see us looking at you) you could
wear a nice khaki Suit same big shirt. Or just a blazer with some jeans.
A nice Khaki Blazer goes with basically any color shirt, and any kind of shirt, Button up or Polo. For pants just keep it plain and simple. Jeans. That’s all just jeans, not boot cut jeans, not slim fit, definitely not skinny jeans. Just Jeans.
Now we have to finish strong with the shoes. Honestly, a nice pair of leather dress shows, brown or black work perfectly here, Loafers, Monkstraps. Broughes, any of these will look find and complete your look nicely.
Show up wearing this and that awkward pause will be replaced by a big smile !
