It's not so much the suit that makes you mature, it's how you carry yourself. Come clean, presentable, use good manners, and just act like an adult, and you should come off fine.

What restaurant are you going to? What is the appropriate dress code? How will your date dress? I love when my date wears a suit (as long as it is appropriate for the restaurant - it would be weird if we're going to Denny's...lol). There are several restaurants in the city where I would expect my date to wear a suit (e.g. the 95th) and others where it would be downright silly.

If you suspect that she thinks you're a little immature then the suit is the least of your problems. If you feel you need to wear a suit to "impress" her or show her that you're mature enough then it's going to get tiresome trying to keep proving yourself.

If I have to "prove" myself to someone then that person isn't worth it to me.

Yes, that's a problem... Do not wear the same thing twice in a row!

She could think: 1) You are trying too hard 2) You are too poor to afford more than one suit 3) You have no originality 4) You are oddly dependent on your "luck suit" 5) You are looking for a woman to help you pick out clothes.

p.s. Post a pic of the suit in question here...

To come across as more mature - wear a sweater vest and white New Balance tennis shoes with dad jeans.... kidding!

I now think you should maybe not wear the suit... I'm not sure if you could carry it off. Would you be comfortable/relaxed in it or would it come across as trying too hard?

It would be hilarious when you stop pulling, and his face was halfway buried in a pile of mud. As he pushes off the ground to get up his face is half muddy and chucks of mud fall off his face.
It would be even better if you were riding him like a donkey at this point...







You: "Mush! "

Him: "Yee-haw!"

I have to wear a suit to work every day, so it's convenient for me to show up with my work gear on, if Duchamp Girl wants to eat out Friday, which she and I do all Fridays anyway.

However, it has crushed my heart many, many times when curling up for a kiss because they harm my ties which I love more than myself

Pretend like you are coming from work, man. Carry a leather bag. It becomes 200% appropriate. Hard working dude heading out to meet his babe! That is a sight of a man in power. Suits = career men.

Playing make-believe to impress a date? That's silly.
