"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…"

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

"Be yourself and be natural is the best advice. Most guy's suits don't fit particularly well. which makes it even harder to try and pull one off as a sports coat. "

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…"

Daniel Gaston replied to Lawrence Edward Tonner's discussion Dinner Date
"Most suit jackets (there are exceptions) don't do so well when unpaired. But it depends on the cut/style of the suit jacket. No hard and fast rule so if the suit jacket fits well then try pairing it with some dark jeans and a shirt. Have…"

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.…"

Daniel Gaston replied to Lawrence Edward Tonner's discussion Dinner Date
"I would personally recommend against the rose, but it really depends on the girl. If you have a pretty good idea that will go over well then go for it, but otherwise it does run the risk of being too over the top. And if you can't smoothly pull…"

"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!"

Lawrence Edward Tonner replied to Chrissie O'Bryan's discussion Can Guys and Girls be just Friends

what it means to be a warrior -

For me it means taking care of those I love and not forgetting to take care of me at the same time.I am there for my family and friends.   I thought this excerpt  by Bohdi Sanders ~ excerpt from "WARRIOR: The Way of Warriorhood," was helpful for my understanding of being a Warrior.The great Sioux chief, Sitting Bull, once stated that, “Warriors are not what you think of as warriors. The warrior is not someone who fights…” At first, this statement seems strange and contrary to what most people…See More
