7 things men shouldn’t wear on first date
She said yes? Great Man! Congratulations! Now all you have to do is this NOT screw it up.
We all have had moments when our friends said derivatives (mostly profane) of the above line just before we went out on a date. Be careful though, for there exist some surefire ways to screw things up, whacky clothing being one of them. Heres a list of what you shouldnt wear on the first date for the second date to happen. (In fact, there have been instances where the date ran away right after spotting the guy, dressed to kill and all that!)
Wearing a good pair of black, shiny shoes is one thing – puncturing your bubble of hope with these shoes quite the other. A typical pointy shoe starts in India and goes all the way to Pakistan, crushing girls hopes at every step. Rub the magic lamp of common sense and avoid them like the plague.

What are you – Tom Cruise from Top Gun? Besides, only Rajnikant can get away with wearing sunglasses on a date. So unless youre channeling some inner, uh, whatever, dont sit across your date wearing em funky sunglasses. That stuff works only in movies (maybe not even there).z
So you liked 127 Hours, love Bungee jumping and are a big fan of Honey Singh/Badshah! Put a leash on your adventurous spirit and ditch these they wont be able to bring out your multi-pocketed personality. Stick to the norm for once.

Flashy buckle belt/jewellery/too much metal
You may nail the shirt, but that big flashy belt reigning in your stomach will be the end of you! Cowboys are good only in movies, so you are not turning into Clint Eastwood anytime soon. And stay away from jewellery last we heard, even Bappida is considering a change of clothes, er, gold. (Okay, we made that up!)
If you have a death wish on your date, checkered pants are going to help you fulfil it. Not only do you need legs like Akshay Kumar (and a patient date like Twinkle Khanna) to carry them off, but also a narrow margin of error.
Animal Print Tux
With an animal print tux, your ideal date is an endangered species. Not only is it an eyesore, but requires one to be extremely deft to be able to carry it off. No can do.

Jeans is cool all right, but not the skinny ones (unless you are Jacky Bhagnani) and assured of the next date (just like Bhagnani Jr doesnt have to worry about his next movie)!
