Women Weigh In On The Dos and Don’ts of Menswear

Menswear Dons and Don'ts

 

Dear Gentleman, the women have weighed in all the Do’s and Don’ts of Menswear for 2017. Find out what you’re doing right and what you’re doing wrong in the eyes of 1000 single women who shared their top menswear grievances. They didn’t pull any punches. Here are the Top 12 Don’ts and respectively -Dos.

 

#1 – Bad Breath
EWW. This is no surprise. Dental hygiene is deal maker or a deal breaker. The number one offender: Beer Breath.

 

#2 – Sloppy Grooming
First impressions come from first glance and women HATE bad grooming. That includes bad shaving, cuts, and ill advised mustache choices. And here’s another thing we learned. We as men like our beards much more than they do.

 

#3 – Poor Fitting Clothes
FIT. COUNTS.  Don’t try to go with anything too tight or too loose. Women want it just right. And before you get reactionary, just think, you don’t want to see them in super loose clothing either.

 

#4 – Athletic Sunglasses With Suits
Sunglass brands are a dime a dozen so make sure you don’t over utilize your sporty sunglasses. Keep a classically designed pair on hand. We have to agree with the ladies on this one. It’s hard to take those racing sunglasses seriously in the boardroom.

 

#5 – Ugg Boots
Don’t wear slippers outside of a 5 feet proximity of your home and that counts for UGGs which are essentially just that – high top slippers. The only exception (and this is not universally agreed upon) is the ski lodge.

 

#6 – Too Much Cologne
Smell ya later. Don’t overdo it on the smell. It’s guaranteed to backfire in more ways than one. The ladies are going to HATE it and some even claimed too much cologne makes them physically sick. When it comes to scent, subtle wins.

 

#7 – Gaudy Jeans
This got a resounding: NOOOOOOOOOO! from everyone. Simplicity is your only answer when it comes to your bum in denim. Don’t try to up your game with diamonds, embroidery or screen-printed wings.

 

#8 – Tennis Socks With Suits
Think no one’s looking at your feet? Guess again. Apparently, there’s a piece of motherly advice passed down from generation to generation telling daughters that looking at a man’s shoes can tell them a lot. They didn’t divulge much more but said, white socks and a suit is like seeing a wolf in sheep’s clothing.

 

#9 – Wrinkled Clothes
Strike while the iron is hot is a saying for a reason. Women want it smooth. We’ve all been there, we want to wear our favorite shirt that’s almost dry but were out of time and try to rock the wrinkle and the dampness. The vote is in, you’re better off with a less favorite, less wrinkled option.

 

#10 – Sneakers With Dressed Pants
Women universally said this is a bad idea. The mens’ magazines suggest it’s a good idea but women say it’s better in theory than in practice. In real life, sneakers don’t cut it with dressed pants.

 

#11 – Overstuffed Wallets
It’s time to clean house. That means you need to consolidate all your crumbled one dollar bills, all those loyalty brand credit cards you don’t use and all the business cards from last year. Give yourself a catchall drawer for those things and keep a minimized wallet with the necessities.

 

#12 – Pattern Overload
See a theme? Less is more. Pattern is the same as cologne, don’t overdue. Too much pattern mixing is a big turn off according to our poll. Stick to the rule of one statement pattern paired with all solids. It’s the safe bet.

Single Women Share Their Turn Ons, Turn Offs

Single Women's Opinion on Menswear

 

 

5 Questions of What Women Prefer When It Comes To Men’s Style – Turn Ons and Turn Offs

We surveyed 1,500 single ladies from the  age range of 18 – 34 and asked them what they consider turn ons and turn offs when it comes to  menswear. These are the results.  We created this powerful infographic to visualize the data collected.

The statistical insight of knowing what women want in men is empowering and can be crucial in successfully navigating modern day dating. Do your single mates a solid and share this infographic.

Some key data: 83% of women thinks it’s a turn off to see men wearing suits without socks. It’s official, women have spoken and have disputed one of 2016’s biggest trends. Despite the plethora of editorial pictures of suited, sockless men  -women prefer men with the good sense to wear socks. 

73% of women consider facial stubble a turn on. The data doesn’t lie. Women like their dates to be well dressed with a hint of rugged so next time you debate whether to shave or not for a date, opt for no. Stubble is a definite plus.

60% of women prefer men who accessorizes in neckties and 72% of women find it a turn on when a gentleman wears tie on a date. The takeaway here: when wooing, wear a necktie!  Don’t second guess it, just do it.  

From these 5 questions, it’s clear that women like to be wooed in style. They like the formality associated with dating and like to gradually fall into something more casual as the relationship progresses into something long term. The good news, women like their significant other in jeans and a t-shirt.

If your currently single, dress up for your dates to guarantee yourself a next date. All this stubble and accessorizing will pay off in the end. After your dating turns into a relationship, you can begin to dress in your favorite pair of jeans and t-shirt.

Guide to Men’s Loafers

Not too long ago we posted this ultimate mens dress shoe guide. Because it became such a popular post, we got inspired to elaborate a bit more on the topic of men’s footwear. This time we narrowed our focus on one particular shoe style: The Loafer.

Instead of writing paragraph after paragraph on the dos and don’ts of each style, we created the following infographic teaching you everything from what each style looks like, when to wear it, how to combine it, what season it is suited for, what dress code it compliments, and more.
