Listening to ZZ-Top I first heard that every girl's crazy about a sharp dressed man. What do you think? Rugged blue collar or sharp white collar? I've always fancied good clothing but until recently I've always been a blue jeans sort of guy. My favorite pairs are starting to develop strings and holes, a sure sign of my preference for them. Their fading color displays brightly my fond memories. With a recent job change I've needed to upgrade my wardrobe which now contains several pairs of slacks and some great collared button up shirts. The shirt material is my favorite. It's 65% Modal 35% cotton. It certainly feel softer than cotton and looks nice.

Armed with my two styles I've taken to the streets to see if I notice a difference with the ladies. I think women need to be shown a good time before being shown a good time, unless they want to head straight for the later. Call me old fashioned. Do you still do this? How many of you head straight for the naughty? Anyway, one of the funniest differences is that taking women to dinner when I was dressed nicely was usually followed by a larger check. The first time was the most pronounced when my date headed straight for the steaks. No pussy footing around trying to guess what I would be able to afford. LOL! I wasn't about to be out-done especially when it comes to food so I chose the rib-eye.

In general it seemed that the formality of my clothing correlated to my date's apparent intimidation from the first approach to the end of the evening. Not quite what I would have expected, and not all positive. My old atire made me feel so regular, like the other 20 guys hanging around the produce isle, but things seem to go smoother then. Perhaps there's a time and place for everything. I'm not so sure it would make a difference for me. Yes, I'm a guy. Yes, most of the time I do the approaching but as I'm comfortable dressing up and down I don't think I'd have an issue with someone dressed as either to hit me up.

There is something appealing with slick clothing. A feeling of power and importance maybe. On the other side, there's a feeling of strengh and and ruggedness from jeans and a t-shirt. Both can be sexy. What are your preferences? Which one makes you wonder if you'll get the chance and which one makes you not care? For now, I think I'll go back to the blue jeans for casual fun.

I love a man that knows how to dress to kill. Just like a woman who can be both denim and lace, I'll take a man who's just a versatile -- blue or white. But in the long run, it's not the clothes that make the man.

You write nicely. I think you are comfortable in your jeans. Stick with it, and find the kinda girl that asks you what you are thinking of eating and politely she will follow suit. That is the way a well mannered woman should act when being taken out to dinner. You know all this. Anyway, Thanks for putting yourself out there and showing you aren't arogant about your new status, being you is what we all want. A friend you don't know.

Thank you. I view myself and my experiences as diverse and balanced. I've enjoyed meeting everyone that I have and seeing where the evening leads. I think you both have some good points and appreciate the fresh perspectives.

I always take off my hat in the presence of a lady and whatever else I take off depends on how lucky I get.

I love a man in jeans! Jeans and t-shirt. Jeans and cowboy boots. Jeans and a sweatshirt. Jeans and biker boots. Jeans and tennis shoes. For formal wear, nothing beat the new blue jeans paired w/ a sport jacket. Just a look I love!

Thank you for the comments and compliments. So far I think the casual wear is winning. I believe that this matches my street results. Hehe, also gives me an idea or two for more pictures. We'll have to see.
