Forget what everyone says about intelligence, kindness and loyalty. When it comes to first dates, the way you look is most important. Shallow? No doubt. But we’re only human. What you wear and how you groom yourself can speak volumes before you even utter “hello.”

Luckily, we’re here to help you put your best foot forward (literally) and prevent you from greeting your date with gnarly nails, all in the hopes that this initial encounter will end in something more than a seriously unsatisfying goodbye.

Sick kicks


It’s no secret that every woman (and, for that matter, any well-dressed gent) is pretty much obsessed with shoes. And that’s because they’re the one thing that can make or break an entire getup. Fortunately, most men know that ratty running shoes are off-limits. But those aren’t the offenders here. Rather, the culprits are clunky, bulbous-toed slip-on shoes that guys dust off for date night. It’s time to part ways and invest in a lean-lined loafer or a lace-up brogues.

A button-down shirt


No, not an oversized, un-tucked one with a purple paisley print and contrasting stripes on the collar and cuffs. Keep it simple with solid white or blue, and focus on fit. Even if you’re packing some extra pounds, the shirt should have high armholes and be tailored through the torso.

A fitted sportcoat


In basic navy, windowpane or tweed, a sportcoat is a surefire (not to mention super-simple) way to swoon your date. And much like your shirt, the only thing that really matters is the cut. It should have two buttons, follow your form and just barely cover your caboose.

This Photo Contains Every Single One Of Tim Howard’s Legendary 16 Saves

This Supermarket Came Up With A Brilliant Way To Keep Food From Going To Waste

People don’t really think of starvation when they’re about to toss a perfectly fine batch of vegetables into the trash after dinner. Furthermore, people don’t think about all of the food being wasted when they sort through their refrigerators. Perhaps what’s even more frightening, is the fact that no one thinks about the fact that “spoiled” […]

This Unreal Glass Treehouse Will Put Your Childhood To Shame (Photos)

Treehouses are not just for children anymore. Russian design studio A.Masow has created a house nestled around a 40-foot fir tree among the Kazakhstan mountains that puts your 10-year-old cousin’s shoe box treehouse to shame. The treehouse — or, rather, tree palace — was inspired by the architecture of Apple stores and can be found outside the city of Almaty. […]
