what to wear on a date


Recommended Posts

Tomorrow I am going on my first date in what seems like an eternity.


For a mid 20s male such as myself what's the best sort of outfit to wear. We're going for a pub meal so don't want to be too casual or too overdressed.


Any advice most appreciated.

Montreal. If you walk into a regular shoe store here, at least 1/3 of the shoes on the men's rack are going to be some variation of those.


My husband probably has 7 pairs.


I like them because they look so clean.



Awesome to see the different styles depending on location... Thank you for posting!

Well, whatever you do, make sure your shoes are clean and in good condition. Nothing says, "my closet is a complete mess and I need a woman to baby me" like dirty sneakers does.


Yeah for sure - no dirty sneakers...


I'm trying to remember what the guy wore during my last date....


Last one Khaki Cargo Pants, decent dark colored t-shirt, and flip flop type sandals...


Before that same thing, but polo shirt...


These were both really laid back dates..


OP, is it hot where you are?

Well I live on the East Coast . . . .


I would say that NO shorts, no cargo pants or sporty pants of any kind, and no khakis please! One of my friends went on a date with a guy who wore polo, a pair of khakis and sneakers, tacky!


For a casual pub dinner date I'd stick with a nice pair of jeans, casual dress shoes (try to avoid sneakers unless they are fashion sneakers), or a clean polo top or button down shirt. It's also a turn on for me when I guy wears a nice cologne . . . a clean fresh scent though so nothing to overpowering. Good luck!
