We've been to Remy 3 times for dinner, my opinion, you'll be fine. Not to worry, don't give it a 2nd thought, just plan on having a wonderful dinner.

It sounds like you'll be dressed completely appropriately for Remy. Your jacket is probably in great shape since it's only been called to action a few times over the past several years. Take it to the cleaners and find a great tie. You'll be all set. If you're worried about the fit, you could always have it altered for a nominal fee.

Don't worried about the other people eating. Self-confidence is the best accessory. Walk in like you belong there, and have a great meal!

LOL. This thread is cracking me up. I guarantee your "cheap suit" will look classier than anyone's $200 jeans at Remy.

And, just for the sake of agument, many truly rich people are also incredibly frugal. They would probably appreciate the deal you got on your suit! (although many of them are probably too "cheap" to pay the additional fee to eat at Remy! )

I think making the effort and wearing a suit/suit jacket and dress pants is enough. What you described sounds nice enough. Don't worry about "the haves" they are probably all in major credit card debt anyways.

Just make the effort to dress up.

We like to dress up and were kind of surprised about how many men were not dressed up on formal night. On formal night in the main restaurants we saw a lot of jeans and polos going in. We were both in suits.

You will be better off than the gentleman that I saw that had to borrow dress shoes from Remy. The thought of borrowed shoes makes me gag.

I proudly wear my $20 dress from Kohls to dinner at Remy.

Maybe the land the Sears in my mall occupies is actually a foreign country. Good thing I have a passport!

The Remy dress code is simple: "Men should wear a suit or dress pants with jacket (sports or suit)." It doesn't talk about how expensive they are!!!

We have found Remy to be exceptionally friendly and welcoming. In our few visits I detected zero interest from other tables about how expensive my clothes were, and of course the waiters were so friendly and seemed genuinely happy to see us---not in the least stuffy.

Wear a suit/dress pants and a jacket, and be prepared for the culinary adventure of a lifetime. Really. Of a lifetime.

Personally, I'm much more concerned with how you act than how you dress!

Well my husband would be distracted.
He would be busy telling you that you spent $25 more than he did for his entire tux. <giggles>
(And yes he owns it) Part of the fun is to see how many places he can get away wearing it so we can bring the cost per wear as low as possible!
Don't think us too cheap, we are on a disney cruise and we do tip well. But it is now a family joke that we all enjoy.

Oh good! I was planning on having my DH wear a $10 polo shirt and $15 khakis from Walmart. I was planning on wearing a $20 dress I got at H&M with a coupon! We were planning on wearing "church chic." Although any more, people wear jeans to church.

As for borrowing shoes, it's not something I'm a huge fan of, although I do rent bowling shoes when I bowl, so I guess it's not that much of a difference.


Rich or not, it doesn't mean you should blow it all on one outfit for just a few hours. But then again, I only spent a few hundred on my wedding dress instead of thousands. That's not to say I didn't drool over some of those gorgeous Monique Lhuillier or Reem Acra dresses.

This post just makes me want to crank up some ZZ Top's "Sharp Dressed Man."

What about a pimp suit with a crunk cup accessory?
