Date night? Wear this

As if sifting through Tinder, Grindr or Guardian Soulmates wasn’t, er, soul-destroying enough, once you actually find that sexy needle in a haystack of weird, there’s the onerous task of finding somewhere cool to take them. And, of course, hunting out that killer outfit to wear.
While we can’t help you with a location (though your friendly neighbourhood Nando’s is the obvious choice…), we can sort you out with a set of decent threads to wow your beau in. We’re going to call this your go-to mid-week date-night outfit: perfect for any man planning to take his consort to a premium chain restaurant followed by a couple of boozy – yet classy ­– pit stops on the way home.
You’ve got your Oxford shirt in there – a must, because it stops you feeling like an overdressed pillock if your date has taken the casual approach, and likewise limits the chances of you looking underdressed if she/he is styled up to the nines. Pair it with some chinos (shorts or trousers – weather dependent), and a pair of handsome loafers, and the job's a good 'un.
Finally, take a coat, because regardless of whether you need one or not, nothing is smoother than a guy who can offer his sweetheart an extra layer when things turn cold later on.
