Dressing for a Date - Page 2

post #16 of 80
Before anyone could give good counsel on this, as others have partially indicated, one would have to know something about the girl, her background, tastes, etc., and what kind of date is planned.

it would be nice to see pictures of all 4 but I think you have a great look picked out.

i agree with everyone else. be yourself and be comfortable.


yeah they are a slim boot cut pair of jeans so they won't look awkward.
thank you everyone for the positive comments.
everyone else, im a poor college student and don't have the funds to drop on a more expensive pair of shoes. i like them and they look good on me and thats what matters.

what truly matters is that you wear whats comfortable to you. if you wear whats comfortable, you'll come across genuine and relaxed. if you wear something thats not you, you'll be a little more on edge and with doubt. a good 95% of getting a chick is confidence confidence confidence. thats it.

wear clothing that you are confident in. if that's a pair of dockers, then you'll do better in them than a pair of loaks you feel like a fake in.

and if you wear what is truly you, whatever that is, it lets her decide if she likes who you are, not some silly front you're anticipating she might like.

this guy hit the nail on the head listen to him

just wear what you wore when you met her the first place. Don't change your whole wardrobe just because it's a date, that's so try-hard.

for college student attire those clothes, although not my cup of tea, are probably ahead of the curve. don't overdo it trying to impress here either. college guys don't get laid b/c they dress well, they get laid b/c they are confident. the clothes will be more of a factor as you get older.

I'm def. not changing my wardrobe for her by any means, I've always dressed pretty much the same, I just wanted to do something new and fresh and i haven't worn before. But I am not changing myself for her at all.

Thank you for your opinions!!

I would substitute the express jeans for a pair in a plain wash, such as these:
http://us.levi.com/product/index.jsp...194290.3692026
A jean with such a pronounced distressing effect won't very well compliment an otherwise lush-looking sweater. The shoes are not as bad as others have said, and I've always felt that a man comfortable in $50 shoes will always look much better than a man uncomfortable in $600 shoes.

Good luck on your date.

DIG

PS: I know you're a college student, but I would stay away from Express clothing in most scenarios. Overpriced and without the quality to back it up; there are much better options for the money. Just my $0.02.

Those shoes You'd be much better off with a pair of Clark's Desert Boots. Also, they're significantly more versatile. They run 1/2 size large, so take that into mind when ordering. And it it's between Chucks or the Dockers, I would take the Chucks. By a landslide.

If your date is worth dating, aim to get to know her and don't worry about getting laid. This way you'll get laid.

If you like them and they look good on you, then you shouldnt go around asking for opinions about them?

Honestly, I worked through college and made enough to buy what I wanted, so did alot of my friends. Hell, one of them bought a stainless/gold Breitling with the money he made trading stocks and interning while in school. So thats not a passable defense in my opinion.
