ARE YOU MEANT TO WEAR A TIE ON A FIRST DATE?
DAN, VIA EMAIL
The overwhelming answer from our totally scientific poll was no, you should not. Ties are for business meetings, and showing up looking like you’re still on the clock will tell your date that you just came from the office and are too lazy to make an effort. Or worse, you’re the kind of guy who’s always in business mode and will talk about your job, non-stop. Big mistake. So even if you’re heading straight from work, pocket the tie and pick a nice open-necked shirt or smart T-shirt, then team it with a blazer.
