couldnt tell you havent dated in years. nix the t shirt and jeans if thats what you were thinking, and three piece suit would make you look more well dressed than her. So something in between. A button down with a nice pair of slacks would do. Jacket/blazer might be overdoing it.

Wear a funny shirt! It's a real ice-breaker!

Not sure where you meet your girls, but I generally try to get a name first...

I certainly don't have the irrational hatred of Helvetica some people do, but I've never seen it used on a t-shirt without looking amateurish.

i work with a lot of 28 year olds

I say if you wear an oversized striped polo
baggy-ish name brand chinos
steve maddens or docs you bought at shoe carnival
and a wal-mart belt

you'll look like 72 bucks, and she'll probably be all over you

maybe Ed Hardy or something like that so she knows your trendy

Maybe some Ecko or Sean John, especially if you are white and from the Midwest.
