I have a date next week. I would be glad to know if other members tried this dress on a date and if they felt any inconvenience.
Come on guys, I can think of several dating scenarios where this getup would be appropriate.
You're in Milan, at a high-price art auction, which you're attending because you've learned that the man you're after--known as 'Von Sperling'--is an avid collector, and you want to get a closer look. During the auction, you can't help but notice that his paramour, in a stunning sinamay hat, glances over her shoulder in your direction.
Later, while sitting a hotel bar in London, the very same lady from Milan walks up next to you and orders a vodka-based drink. She turns to you, with her bakelite cigarette holder in hand, and says something both witty and provocative at the same time, prompting you to light her cigarette while responding to her overture with a retort that demonstrates at once sublime intellect and nonchalance.
After a few more exchanges, you finish your drink, stand and excuse yourself.
"Another time, perhaps?", she says.
"Meet me in the lobby at eight.", you say.
Occasionally wear a 3 piece to work and have had post work dates and so yes could wear a less fashion victim version of it.
As others, what "inconvenience" can you possibly be thinking off? I guess if it goes very well she has one more item to take off you but I'm sure you'll cope plus the closure mechanism on some womenswear will take much longer to figure out than waistcoat buttons take to undo. Hmmm.... if you are mud run or assault course it may not to be too convenient.... outside of that you'll be ok
