What men should wear on first date

A man should look as if he had bought his clothes with intelligence, put them on with care and then forgot all about them. No woman wants to date a man who has spent more time getting ready than she has.

It can be hard on a first date to make the right impression. You want to look sharp but not like you’re trying too hard. You want to look put together, but still relaxed. Finding the right balance can be tough, but like most things, keep it simple and focusing on getting the right fit is usually the best course of action.

As long as you’re wearing the right size shirt, making sure that the sleeves are long enough, and it doesn’t make a tight X mark across the chest, then you’re fairly open to different patterns and colours.

scentWear a scent
But not too much of it. If in doubt, go classic and unassailably masculine. Spray on your chest under your shirt and on your hair to give her an incentive to get closer (wrists and neck wear off too quickly), and never down your trousers. Also clean and trim your fingernails if you want to touch her ever.

Sporting attire should be avoided at all costsUnless your date involves watching or participating in sport. In which case there probably won’t be a second date.Dress for pleasure, not business Don’t wear a suit unless your date is somewhere incredibly swanky, and even then smart separates are almost always preferable. As well as looking like you’ve come straight from work (and therefore made zero effort), if you’re dressed like a mobile phone salesman then it looks like you’re trying too aggressively to close the deal, and no respectable woman wants to get that vibe on the first date.

walletBuy a decent wallet
Because all the brownie points you earn by paying for dinner will evaporate in an instant if your billfold says, “Bad Mother f %#$” on it. Put your money into brown or black leather.

This also applies to novelty/comedy socks and ties.

shoesChoose your shoes wisely
Because whether it’s before or after your eyes, backside and bank account, she will look and she will judge you by them. Good-quality leather lace-ups or loafers are the safest bets. Socks are scarcely less important. Seriously, this really can’t be emphasised enough. As old grandmas always say, never trust a man with unpolished shoes. Another advice is to be wary of men wearing shoes which are too polished. Women have been reported to have left the restaurant because their dates were wearing flip-flops – with a suit. And don’t even think about sandals.

Keep your denim dark, slim and plain ‘Tricked-up’ jeans will impress less. No bell bottoms. You can put on a light, bright colour or beige top and combine it with jeans. You can even wear jeans with holes in them and put on white sneakers. Such an outfit is great for casual dates and for the outdoor dates. You can look stylish and not overly dressed and matching the occasion.

Do not wear old clothes
Even if you go bike riding or doing any other sports activities. Make sure anything you put on looks new and nice. Look neat Even if your clothes are not too fashionable, in any case they should look neat and nice. This shows the lady you are willing to go extra mile to look your best for her sake. Do not button up the top button on the shirt if you are not wearing a tie.
