Clothes Guys Should Never, Ever Wear On A First Date

Ditch these and you'll be GQ in no time.

1. Embroidered jeans.

The problem with embroidered jeans is that the designs are usually very loud and distracting. It's not the early 2000s anymore and you shouldn't dress like it either.

5. Blazers with T-shirts.

Nah, let this go. You're not in a ska band anymore. If you're gonna be formal, be formal. If you're going for casual, be casual. Not both.

7. T-shirts with ironic slogans on them.

Throw all of these out. They're usually really corny or super offensive and you don't want people to judge you solely off of an awkward T-shirt you wore.

8. Button-down vests.

Unless you're wearing a three-piece suit, this article should never be worn solo. It's a pretty specific piece of clothing that has a purpose. Don't try to push boundaries by going outside the line.

10. "Fancy" shirts that you only "go out" in.

"Going out" shirts are a crime — toss them out now. You shouldn't have shirts specifically for "going to the club." You should just have a variety of shirts that you can wear in multiple situations.

12. Board shorts.

Board shorts are extra long swim trunks that usually come down to the knee. Why do you need all that extra coverage? You're at the beach! Get a pair of shorter swim trunks instead, please.

Here's a full list of some affordable options.

19. Overly pointed shoes.

You're not a witch or a wizard, and chances are you probably aren't a cowboy either. That's what you'll look like in overly pointy shoes. Ditch them unless you want your feet to look two sizes bigger than they actually are.

20. Skater shoes.

Whether you're a skater or not, these aren't good. Sorry! They're usually huge with big fat laces, and honestly, they look a little juvenile. If you're a skater, I'm sure there are some better options. Hello, have you heard of Vans Old Skools?!

23. And actually, wait — no flip-flops in general.

Unless you're at the beach, these don't need to be worn anywhere. The ground is usually VERY GROSS.
