A 1st Date Has To Be Planned From What You Say To What you Wear (Seriously)!

Let’s start off with a bold statement:  is it me or does a 1st date feels as scary as a heart attack at times (at least for me)?

Like everything in life, a 1st date is a try and fail process. One day you’re the worst ever and the next day you become the 1st date master.


For Some It Takes 2 And For Others It Takes Life.

Throughout my early days as a life’s student, I ‘ve been in countless of dates. I did it on purpose!

I went through the most harsh humiliations. The no-call no-shows & the clumsiest moments you could think of. Looking back, I can now say that serendipity is a real thing!

I’ve learned all the do’s and don’ts of the dating life. Now I’m in the right position to help you (and get your dating game on point)!  

Today we will go over the 20 things I wished I never wore on a 1st date (and trust me you shouldn’t too).

#1 An All White Outfit

This one doesn’t apply to every man, just to the clumsy ones. You go to the movies, a good restaurant or anything that involves you eating something and you know what can happen.


Indeed, A clumsy man just can’t help it! A drip of spaghetti sauce or some Pepsi you couldn’t swallow properly and your “wow” effect is gone.

Tip: If you still want to pull it off, avoid going to places where you can destroy the outfit.

#2 Pants That Are WAYYYY Too Tight

Comfort is everything and if you can’t sit down or get up on command, drop the issue!

#3 Wearing Sunglasses Inside Or At Night

Wearing sunglasses inside or at night may feels like the cool thing to do but it backfires very rapidly.


Indeed, authenticity is everything on a 1st date. If that’s not your personality, don’t try to go overboard to impress a woman because it actually makes you look very unconfident or pretentious.

Tip: if you feel like doing it anyway, make sure you grab yourself a nice pair of vintage frames to make it look official!

#4 Ripped Jeans Too Ripped!

Once again, it goes back to comfort and making a good impression. Ripped jeans are fly don’t get me wrong but sometimes one false move can change it all if you understand what I mean (smiley emoji in full effect)

#5 Sandals

No fetishism involved but your feet tells a lot about you (and sometimes too much too).


If deep inside you know your pedicure game is not on point, don’t risk it.

#6 The “Do You Even Lift” Starter Pack

I give a pad on the shoulder to anybody taking their health seriously enough to get busy at the gym.

Perhaps, keep the “Gym Rat” attire at the gym, I’ve learned that the hard way…

#7 The “I Get Money” Starter Pack

When I was building my personal style, a voice in my head told me that wearing high end garments was a statement for success and taste (young and dumb they say).


Before any rapper ever said “Everything Designer“, I was living the “Everything Designer” life!

Being a walking publicity stunt for a Holt Renfrew is NEVER the way to go fellas.

Tip: if your charisma is not enough to seduce your date, she’s not the one!

1st date, dirty kicks, dirty sneakers, shoecare products

Cc: via Giphy

#8 Dirty Kicks

Believe it or not but women pay attention to every little detail and your kicks are the first thing they look at.


When you live in a “Life Happens” world, the best thing to do is to be war ready with your “Save The Sneakers” kit whenever you go out on a 1st date!

Tip: Moneysworth & Best has been a life savior for my sneakers and my love life!

too much accessories, don`t wear too much jewels, jewels

#9 Too Much Accessories Is Like Not Enough Accessories

First impressions are the last. We want to look good and express our personality through our outfit.

As simplistic as it sounds, you will eventually learn the ultimate power of simplicity. Forget about a thousand bracelets and chains or  the gold watch to match the gold ring.


Tip: positive vibes and a good dinner should be enough.

#10 Grillz On A 1st Date

On this one it’s all about wins and losses. It either makes you look like the flyest guy on earth to your future better half or the most ridiculous.

Tip: never underestimate the “you never know” factor

#11 Wearing Your Best Smile Is A Must But Don’t Abuse It

This one goes without saying! Your smile is your secret weapon but also your worst enemy if you don’t know how to use it properly


Tip: if you feel like smiling every 2 seconds is the thing the do, send me a DM because we need to talk it out at this point!

#12 Dress According To The Temperature

When you come from a place like Montreal, you understand pretty quickly that temperature is a factor you can’t overlook.

Be ahead of the curve and make sure to dress accordingly because mama nature works in mysterious ways sometimes.

#13 Avoid Risky Colours

At Montrealgotstyle, we always encourage our readers to take risks with their style. Thinking “Outside Of The Box” is a must in life but not always for your style.


Tip: if canary yellow is not your forte, well… canary yellow is not your forte!

#14 Never Pick The Wrong Graphic Tee

Graphic tees are life basically! They often express what we deeply feel or references we want to share with the world.

Unless you took months before taking a woman on a 1st date, for the most part you’re starting to get to know her.

As your new dating coach I would strongly suggest you to avoid graphic tees that send mix messages. My infamous “Your Room Or Mine?” didn’t make the cut as you can guess (the f**ck was I thinking!)


Tip: neutrality can never go wrong.

#15 A “Deep V” T-shirt

Why they even exist anyway!


#16  Sandals (With Socks)

If you read #5 and thought you could find a loop hole with this, you got it all wrong. In fact, adding socks to sandals is worst than worst (common fellas?!) .


Tip: if you have your feet game on lock, here are sandals you can buy!

#18 Don’t Forget #7

For real!

#19 Don’t Wear Anything You Had From An Ex Girlfriend

Clothes have a limitless power. This shirt you had from your ex is the old you, if you really hope to turn the page it starts with what you wear!

Tip: Just DON’T do it.


#20 Confidence Is The Best Outfit

Shyness and a lack of confidence can kill whatever you wear. You could follow all our previous suggestions but if you can’t hold a conversation and be in the moment; you’re doomed form the start.

Ps: thank us later!

What Do You Think?

Of course there are a thousands of other things to avoid on a 1st date and we would like to know what we have missed in our list. What else would you add to the list and why?

The End Of An Era And A New Start: Dress To Kill Magazine Goes Digital

A New World Order



I hate to break it down to you so abruptly but the world is changing, the world as we knew it, the way we consume, the way we think and even that good old Dress To Kill magazine is going through it.

Read More: Learn About The Black History In Montreal With This New City Tour

As a young and inexperienced blogger back in 2016, I felt deep in my earth that paper was a dying medium and that the internet was about to carry the torch.

a hundreds of blog posts later, multiple attempts at building an online presence and literally trying to digitize the aesthetics & creativity I saw in magazines growing up.


I must admit 2 things: 1. what it takes to make fashion or information enjoyable is very hard to put together and 2 building an audience on or offline is a GREAT feat.

I grew to admire and respect my peers in traditional media because they made the most out of nothing at a time where Facebook and all those outlets were not a thing.

In case you didn’t know, Dress To Kill magazine is not your average magazine by any shape or form.

Promoting Canadian art and fashion from province to province was something seemingly unthinkable but they got it done.


From iconic covers with Lenny Kravitz and more iconic nights at le Mount Stephen to bring the whole industry under the same roof, DTK got it done.

Don’t take what I’m saying as a farewell note because today actually mark a rebirth for the publication.

Indeed, while the world was going all over the place, they went on a well thought out rebrand.

As you might have guessed, the biggest take away from this is the stoppage of the paper version of the magazine.


The focus is now digital but as I told you earlier, DTK doesn’t go halfway.

Their new platform will include an online boutique which once again is going to focus on shedding light on Canadian creators for men and women.

Do you think more magazines are going to make a full transition to digital?

We Ask A Personal Development Coach How To Overcome The Ins and Outs Of The Crisis

It’s all about your point of view



marc dumaine, personal development coach, covid-19

Everything You Need to Know Through The Lens Of A Personal Development Coach

I’m always amazed at how people like to stigmatize the role or relevance of a personal development coach. They’re quick to label it a scam, a fad, something based on nothing but little they did know, they’re coaches around the world who impacts millions and millions of people in a life changing way. I was looking for the equivalent of a Tony Robbins in Quebec, my research undoubtedly came back to the same name: Marc Dumaine.

Read More: Here’s What I’ve Learned About Myself Since The Coronavirus Crisis Started

Mr Dumaine is more than a personal development coach, he’s a man with a story.

Not your average story either. From overcoming alcohol and drug abuse to obtaining a MBA to running campaigns for some of the biggest corporations in this province. Here’s a man of many battles.


Honorable mention too, these days Marc is focused on creating an international platform to impact as many people he possibly can.

marc dumaine, personal development coach

The bottom line is this. This personal development coach is not unfamiliar with trials and tribulations, changes and transitions.

That’s why to me, in a time like this where everything is doing a 180 degree, I had to pick his brain and ask him how can you and I get over.

In this Q&A, we indeed ask Marc Dumaine about several things such as how to bounce back from the crisis, his keys to success and much more.




#1 How did you figure yourself out as a future entrepreneur and what was the key factor that made you take that route?

I was always an artist at heart and found that I didn’t it in any mole.  After completing my MBA, I realized that my biggest assets were my differences.  I decided at that moment to stop following what people expected from me and launched my own business.  To me being an entrepreneur is an art form in itself. I have never regretted that choice since I launched Asana Coaching 10 years ago.

#2 How can someone go from being self-employed to an entrepreneur making money without physically being there?

The internet is booming with opportunities right now ! Even with the COVID-19, there is a redefinition of the way people consume products and services ! It is a TIME for being creative and look into endless opportunities ! Get out of our comfort zone and start being inspired by people who are already doing it ! Then, build yourself a right game plan with an amazing branding, and you are all set for the best adventure of your life.

#3 What are the pros and cons of being a consultant?

The pros are definitely the freedom it gives you in terms of choosing your schedule, the services you want to offer, the different partnerships you can build and finally, having a real impact in your client’s lives !

The biggest con I think is the loneliness that comes from working on your own and often alone ! You also have the insecurity of never having a stable income.  This life is not made for everybody ! 


#4 What would be the achievement you’re most proud of and why?

The biggest achievement for me is to have never given up ! In my 10 years as an entrepreneur, I could have gone bankrupt a few times, I could have been discouraged for so many reasons… but my faith in what I was doing kept me going ! It is a hard industry where you are competing against so many people and you have to realize that you have never made it ! You have to renew yourself every day, offer the top of the top and always evolve as a human being and expert ! I am very proud to still be there today, stronger than ever.

#5 What entrepreneurs should learn from the Coronavirus crisis?

I think we have to realize that we can’t just keep running all the time ! The anxiety, the stress and the adrenaline are very dangerous ! We talk a lot of profitability, performance but we tend to forget to talk about happiness and well-being ! I hope this time brings more humanity into entrepreneurs’ lives ! 

#6 Where do you see yourself in 5 years from now?

Without wanting to sound over the top, I truly believe that I will have built my brand into an international platform that will include wellness retreats worldwide, TV shows, a one-man show, a few books and real estate projects ! No pressure ! LOL Seriously, I am a kid at heart and developing my business is the best adventure that life has given me ! Watch out world, I am coming. 🙂

#7 What would be the main thing entrepreneurs around the world should learn from you?

That I almost died three times from drugs and alcohol ! That I was the mos unhappy and insecure person for the two thirds of my life ! That i was bullied and rejected for being different ! And in the end, I am the living proof that anything is possible when you don’t give up on yourself and your life ! 


#8 What would be your 3 keys to success ?

1- You are 100% responsible for your choices, attitude, perceptions and mindset

2- There are no mistakes, only feedback !

3- Only accept what’s 10/10 for you ! That is a sign that you are treating yourself life the most important person on your life.

If you’re interested in seeing him in action, he’s doing a Facebook live tonight at 7:30 pm and if you’re looking for some light in these dark times, that’s the place to be.
