Home Cooked Dinner Date Apparel to Impress Your Significant Other


There’s no reason to dress up for a home cooked dinner date, right? Wrong. Just like with cooking, presentation matters. Dress your best no matter what the setting and give your significant other something to feast their eyes on. Here are some of our favorite customizable dinner date dress shirts and slacks you can customize to look as good as your home cooking tastes. 

Great Date Shirt Patterns

Tartan Plaid


Looking for chill in-home date night style? Look no further. This Tartan Plaid, with its menagerie of deep navy, steel blues, warm reds and subtle yellows, has got you covered. Not only does it look great, it wears great all day long. The lightweight construction and easy breathability make Tartan Plaid easy to layer in cool weather and just as viable as a stand-alone when its warm.

Muted Lavender


No wardrobe that invokes the spirit of Muted Lavender will suffer from a lack of unique style. This fabric is all about the little details. It is woven using a subtle mixture of orange-brown and purple threads, resulting in the solid muted lavender coloring. But upon closer inspection, you’d see these individual colors burst to life. Not only is Muted Lavender appealing, but it is also beautifully constructed, boasting a lightweight weave that’s just the right thickness to allow for easy airflow.

Dots Jacquard Utility

Rough and tough meets casual style in this Dots Jacquard Utility fabric. It’ll outlast any day and it looks great doing it. The textured jacquard weave contrasts a lively polka dot pattern to pop off the cloth with splendid gusto. Combine these strengths and the result is a shirt that offers versatile style options without sacrificing durability. Pair Dots Jacquard Utility with tan chinos and casual white sneakers for an effortless look that fits perfectly into a backyard dinner-date-under-the-stars vibe.

Stylish Pant Options

Mori Tone Blue


The Mori Tone Blue casual pant fabric is high-class style in an easy-going garment. It is constructed using a new type of synthetic polyester material that looks like wool but behaves like polyester. It is incredibly lightweight and moderately water repellant, making Mori Tone Blue a great piece for the cook who likes to get active in the kitchen. Pants made from this fabric are less likely to wrinkle after sitting, meaning you’ll still look great when you ask to have this dance after dinner.

Cool Dots Heather Grey 


Add a little edge to your dinner date wardrobe with this Cool Dots Heather Grey pant fabric. It’s an ultra-lightweight cloth which complements many pairings with a laidback, gravel-like visual texture. Warm weather doesn’t stand a chance against its micro-dot weave. Cool Dots promotes maximum airflow and anti-snag construction, so not only is it both fashionable and functional, but it’s durable too. Put its vintage style to the test and integrate it alongside your favorite shirt and shoe combination.

Black & Blue Cordura Stretch Check


Folks who fancy fashion with a flair for the flamboyant will love this Black and Blue Cordura Stretch Check fabric for home-cooked dinner date night. Its ultra-lightweight, blended wool and nylon construction not only enhances abrasion and snag resistance but also staves off wrinkles like nobody’s business. That means you get a clean silhouette no matter how active you get in the kitchen.
