Should a man dress better or equal to his female date

post #1 of 56
Thread Starter 
Should a man dress better or equal to his female date? I was at dinner tonight and I notice this stunning blonde wearing a tight black summer dress. It wasn't a formal dress, but a step up from her date. I was thinking, should a man dress at least as formal, if not better, than his female date?

If both are dressed to the occasion, how do you judge who is dressed better? I think it's too subjective.

That's a good question. I am sure the experts here can give an objective criteria.

A man can be dressed well but shouldn't upstage the date. Unless he doesn't care for a second date.

Equal to. Inequality of dress both looks and feels awkward.

Sounds like they were almost equal in todays non-SF world.

Otherwise he would need a coat and tie.

I agree with you to an extent. She looked like she dressed well, where as he looked thrown together.

+1, this is a world of fedoras, spectator shoes and bow ties. In the real world people dress like the dude with the hot blonde.

A lot of women prefer to look better than men when out in public. I've had too many women I know for years say, "I saw you but did not say hi because I felt you would not respond."

Surprisingly, it only happens when I sport a suit.

The smart guy with the hot blonde dresses like Tony Soprano and laughs at the guys who try too hard.
