Eric Simons replied to Lawrence Edward Tonner's discussion Hats with suits
"I would skip the bow tie, but like the idea of the hat. I wouldn't do a bowler or top hat, though- that's either for black tie(very formal) or white tie(you're meeting the president... and it's 1918), or will come off as a…"

"I'm not an expert but I believe that top hats are only supposed to be worn in the most formal of contexts and with the most formal of attire like morning dress or white…"

Hats with suits

Hi allHopefully you can see this picture so you know what kind of suit I mean.  This was me at a wedding a couple of months ago, and the suit if you can't see is 3 piece, black with very narrow pinstripes.  It's my office Christmas party in a couple of weeks and I'll be wearing this suit but I want to jazz it up with a bow tie, and…See More

Lawrence Edward Tonner replied to Lawrence Edward Tonner's discussion Dinner Date
"Hmmm you all make good points!  Well I'm used to wearing a suit occasionally for work and I do enjoy stepping up and looking sharp, but what I'd be likely to wear for dinner would be jeans (blue, dark and light) and a black…"

Steve Dallas replied to Lawrence Edward Tonner's discussion Dinner Date
"It is obvious that wearing such a thing isn't part of your current fashion choice, so why would you step out and do something that you don't normally do? Always, always, always remember that dating is just as much about you as it is her.…"

D Whaler replied to Lawrence Edward Tonner's discussion Dinner Date
"What color suit? I personally would go with a button down shirt but if that isn't your style lots of people do the tee shirt under a jacket thing.  I suppose I'm just not very trendy when it comes to that sort of stuff. Jeans should…"

Lawrence Edward Tonner replied to Lawrence Edward Tonner's discussion Dinner Date
"Thanks for the advice, I'll save the rose then and yeah offer my arm instead of my hand!  One other question re fashion, I don't have a sports jacket or a blazer, but I do have a suit jacket - is that acceptable with jeans and a…"

D Whaler replied to Lawrence Edward Tonner's discussion Dinner Date
"I'm going to third the notion to save the rose for later.  Its a solid idea but would be difficult to pull off without injecting some awkwardness.  Also by saving it you can bust it out as the relationship matures to solidify your…"

Liam replied to Lawrence Edward Tonner's discussion Dinner Date
"I agree with Daniel on all of his points. Getting a rose or flower in my opinion would be a touch over the top at this stage. I would also advise offering your arm and not your hand.  Relax and get to know each other. Have fun. Smile and laugh.…"

Dinner Date

Hey guysSo it didn't work out with that girl that I was dating before, but now I'm dating another girl...we went for drinks on Sunday and that was fun, now we're going for dinner tomorrow, and I just thought I'd share my plans with you guys to see what you think and get some advice.I'm gonna meet her at 7, and (weather permitting) we're gonna take a walk through the park to the restaurant where I've made reservations for 7:30 - now I'm thinking of giving her a rose when I meet her - is that…See More

Lawrence Edward Tonner replied to Nate Thallas's discussion Hercules vs. the Hydra
"Have you tried talking it out with the future in-laws?  Perhaps they can be made to see reason, and surely they don't want to see their pressure making their daughter ill.   Hope she gets better soon and you get it all sorted out!"

"Tolkien must have wanted to be more than friends with a girl who didn't feel the same way!"

Lawrence Edward Tonner replied to Chrissie O'Bryan's discussion Can Guys and Girls be just Friends
"I think teenage guys and girls are a little different and I'd say it gets easier for men and women to be friends as they get older, but I think your question should really be 'can single guys and girls just be friends'?   In my…"

Rémy Vanschoonwinkel replied to Lawrence Edward Tonner's discussion Advice please!
"Keep up the good work, lad! You're just unsure about the things. (I currently am too with my date ;) but the trick is to keep a cool head and look at it logical) So she said yes twice; that's a very big sign that's she's…"

Lawrence Edward Tonner replied to Lawrence Edward Tonner's discussion Advice please!
"Hmm, well you live and you learn...we might go out again when she's back off her holiday but to be honest I'm not sure I like her enough to keep trying to make myself available.   I'll keep looking!"

Sir replied to Lawrence Edward Tonner's discussion Advice please!
"Thing is, she owes you nothing.  She doesn't owe you not to be "sick" (and if she's lying to you about being sick, do you really want to date her?).  She's given you no reason to believe she wasn't sick.…"

Mongoose replied to Christopher Chmiel's discussion I want to grow a beard
"While it does depend on the skin type, I did read something which made a lot of sense: Beard oils are for the skin. They are too thin to do much for the beard (the individual shafts of hair funnel the oil down to the skin, which absorbs it). These…"
