A guest editorial from the Sharp Tanguero mail bag - a tanguero shares his thoughts on men's attire at the milonga.
"If ladies take the time to dress up for a Milonga, men should as well. I’ve seen a well known couple dance. Both beautiful dancers, she was nicely dressed while he was wearing torn jeans and a cut-off t-shirt at a Milonga. It did not look good at all.
"Here is my suggestion for the men. Go online or where ever and buy a nice pair of tango shoes if you don’t already have a pair. Select what ever pair you like. Take the tango shoes to the Men’s Wearhouse. Ask them to help you find a nice pair of slacks and shirt that will look good with your shoes. You can also accessorize by adding a nice belt, braces or suspenders or even a tie or a vest. The folks at the Men’s Wearhouse are really good at this. You can have a pair of slacks and a couple of shirt and accessories that you can change and make it look like you have different outfits.
Hope this helps. By the way, I don’t work for the Men’s Wearhouse. But I do all my nice clothes shopping there and I have always been satisfied with my purchases. They will even tailor your clothes to fit you just right, therefore making it more comfortable. I am not good at selecting good outfits so I let the experts do it for me. "
Editor's note: By the way, you can find style advice online from Men's Wearhouse here. I am also a big fan of the Men's Wearhouse as I've had great luck with the service and finding my husband's and several friends' clothes there.
