For bottoms think: Decent

Since you're there to show the parents that you're a respectable suitor, the best way you can show this is to let them see that you wear "decent" clothes. "You have a lot of options when it comes to bottoms but one thing I can advise you is to NEVER wear shorts unless you're first meeting is at a beach or something. Wear something comfortable, like a well-fitting pair of trousers," Bernales suggests.

For shoes think: Impressive

Impressing the parents doesn't necessarily mean you have to show off how much you spend on your clothes. "You want to impress but not look pretentious. Wear shoes that show off your personality, not your bank account. Stick to clean-looking shoes that match your outfit. You have to be comfortable to walk around in them just in case you have to walk somewhere, " Bernales says.

Complete the look with: a belt to hold things together

If you want to go for next-level good-boy looks, tuck your polo in. A simple belt accents your outfit that it becomes eye-catching without being overbearing. Also, please make sure it's a good-fitting belt because no one wants to see you loosen it while eating.
