Here’s the hard truth: Looks matter when it comes to dating. Here’s another truth: Not as much as most guys think. Take a look at what happened when I shared the results of my survey on Reddit, where I asked 101 women about men’s style on first dates. People were actually offended that someone would suggest you wear something nice on a date! Look, I’ve been doing this long enough to understand why people were upset.  Their mistake is thinking that the only thing you need to be successful at dating is looking good. That’s not what I’m saying! Great style doesn’t make the man, great style enhances him. I mean, how good is a phone with a beautiful matte black finish and gorgeous screen if it keeps crashing and never works? Any man that’s been on at least a handful of dates knows that attraction and dating is complex. Yes, looks are a…

On our first date, my girlfriend and I went to PDT (above), a really cool speakeasy bar here in NYC  hidden behind a phone booth in a hot dog shop. They’re known for their amazing cocktails, which we gladly put to the test. If you asked my girlfriend about our first date, she couldn’t tell you much, except for one thing — the shirt I was wearing. A striped tabbed collar dress shirt from Robert Geller. “It’s my favorite shirt on you.” She says. It made such an impression on her that it has survived a good 5 closet purges. You’ve probably heard the saying “It only takes 7 seconds to make a first impression”. What if I told you you actually had less time than that? According to a study done by Princeton, it actually only takes the brain 1/10th of a second to make a snap judgment of…

“Colombia, Croatia, Italy, Sweden…and Spain. I know, that’s such a cliché answer. But Spain is beautiful.” Dani tells me. We’re at Ralph’s Coffee, Ralph Lauren’s hidden little coffee shop on the 2nd floor of his Polo store in Midtown Manhattan. I made Dani pick her Top 5 places she’s traveled to, which seemed like asking a parent to pick their favorite child. Even wittled down to 5, the list is envious. Especially when you take into account that Dani is just 26 years old. Dani is a stunningly beautiful, wickedly talented writer. Traveling the world covering the latest in music, along with spots to eat and drink, requires a bit of taste. So what better person to talk about dating and men’s style with? Over coffee, a bite, and a couple of hours, she shared with me what the sexiest thing a guy can wear, why it’s not about labels, and why the day date is the best kind of…
