Stop in to the newly relocated Lake Street store to refresh your rock-n-roll style for the big date. Owned by a local partnership, the store mainly carries stylish casual menswear at affordable prices including brands like Ben Sherman, Square One and Union.
Make a sophisticated style statement on a first date by shopping this line of casual menswear with seven Twin Cities locations. A lightweight sweater or sportcoat paired with casual pants – also appropriate for a smart casual look – tells your date that you are making a serious effort.
This new addition to 50th and France, owned by Bluebird Boutique’s unofficial other half, offers chic menswear from a variety of designer brands like 7 for Mankind and Alternative Apparel. The boutique is cozy and has plenty of options for a respectable outfit to impress a first date.
A selection of brands from Hugo Boss Black Label to Theory will help you get dressed for any kind of first date. Invest in a trendy date night outfit at the Galleria and Gaviidae locations with outlet pricing at the Downtown Minneapolis store. Keep an eye on locations as this locally-owned brand continues to expand.
For a cheap but not cheap-looking update, shop for basics from clean underwear to jeans and shirts at this discount brand name chain. Located throughout the Twin Cities and surrounding suburbs with twelve stores, you can save as much as 60 percent off department store prices.
When all of your shirts are dirty and your bank account is low, stop at one of eleven Twin Cities locations for a quick fix on your way to date night. Steer clear of the sweatshirts and baggy jeans and opt for the more tailored items to give your date the impression that you know how to take care of yourself. Extended sizes available online.
Refine your eclectic style with something new from the men’s equivalent to Anthropologie. The first-time first dater should come prepared to invest in an item while the more mature one can build a complete outfit from skinny jeans to plaid shirts at the Mall of America or Uptown.
