0 Comment

The restaurant you’ve chosen will play a big part in choosing which suit you feel is right but we don’t think you can ever be overdressed, especially not when popping the question, so we recommend going all out!

The Out and About Proposal

The London Eye, Edinburgh Castle, Manchester Cathedral, the UK is full of picturesque locations that make the perfect backdrop for a proposal to remember but if you’re going to be popping the question out and about then you’re going to want to wrap up whilst still looking good.

The key to dressing the part for your outdoor proposal in the British winter weather is an overcoat. Smart but comfortable, an overcoat is also the ideal place to hide the ring box before you’re ready to get down on one knee!

A pair of jeans with a smart knitted jumper, pair of boots, an overcoat and scarf is the ultimate dapper attire for staying warm whilst asking that all important question!

The Beach Proposal

Popping the question on the beach is a classic but always well-received choice, so whether you choose Spain, Dubai, the Maldives or somewhere else in the world with a nice, hot climate at this time of year, nailing that beach outfit that is still suitable for a proposal is a bit of a balancing act.

You want to be dressed appropriately for the warm weather, especially so you don’t give away the surprise that something big is about to happen but you don’t want to be in your most casual beach attire for such a special occasion, so we’ve got the perfect smart casual beach outfit for you!

Chino shorts paired with a smart t-shirt is bound to help you look and feel cool under the shining sun and to smarten things up, we’d go for a pair of trainers but if flip flops or sliders are more your style then do what makes you comfortable!

The At Home Proposal

For those couples who believe home really is where the heart is, an at home proposal is the ultimate choice but it does leave the question of what do you wear to pop the question in your own house?

We’re all for a pair of pyjamas but when it comes to looking back at your post-proposal pictures, do you really want to be wearing your PJS? We’re not convinced so a comfy but cool outfit is definitely the way forward.

A pair of jeans is the perfect choice as they’re comfortable and seeing as they’re part of most men’s daily attire, they won’t give away that anything is happening! Pair with a t-shirt and hoodie and hey, why not throw on your slippers as you’re at home?

So, whether you’re planning on getting down on one knee at a lavish location or in the comfort of your own four walls, you can now ensure you’re dressed for the occasion with the help of Slater Menswear!

We’re confident your other half is going to being overjoyed and of course, say ‘YES’, so don’t forget that the next step is securing your look for the big day and we can help with that too with the Slater Menswear wedding shop!
