Scored yourself a date this weekend? Get in there! Make sure you dress to impress to bag some serious points this Valentine’s Day.
Rule number one for acing any Valentine’s date is to turn up looking dapper. Grab yourself a crisp new shirt, such as the Carhartt Clink button-down, or a Dickies Sacramento classic check shirt.
Team with a pair of Levis or Cheap Monday jeans for a winning combo.
Treat your feet
Women love shoes, so make sure you’re wearing appropriate footwear in her company. Yes, Valentine’s date is the excuse you’ve been waiting for to get your hands on some new kicks. The Asics Valentine’s pack are certainly a step in the right direction, or the Nike SB Janoski is a versatile shoe that can easily be dressed up.
So your outfit is on point, but what about that facial fuzz? Keep your bristles in check and give them a reason to get up close and personal with a little trim with this cut-throat razor from Bedfordshire Beard Co. and a good rinse with Oak Beard Co. Beard Wash. Then use a few drops of oil Bear Face Beard Oil to soften and scent the hair and work in a styling pomade like this one from Suavecito to achieve the desired finish. If you’re planning a goodnight kiss, you’ll need a quick dab of lip balm – yes really.
A few months back, we named and shamed all the skanky wallet owners out there. Don’t be that guy! Show them that you’re a self-respecting man and store your bucks in a sweet bit of gear. We recommend this number from Polar Skate Co, or if you’re not looking for anything too serious, check out this fun skew wallet from Eastpak.
You don’t have to go all out and cop some new sneaks to impress your date. If you’ve already got a pair of decent kicks, be sure to give them the once over with a decent bit of cleaning kit, like this one from Jason Markk then add some Fat Laces to give them a new lease of life.
Gettin’ jiggy with it
If you’ve made it to the end of the date without making an idiot of yourself and romance looks to be on the cards, don’t fall at the last hurdle by rocking rotten kecks. Try these boxers from Stance (sexy dancing optional) to woo your partner.
