As Mark Twain once said, “Clothes make the man. Naked people have little or no influence on society.”
According to a study in 2011 done by Men’s Wearhouse, it is a man’s clothing that allows him to portray the kind of person he is. It is the first thing people see after all. Stylish men are seen as confident, successful, smart, and more attractive.
Jacob Pettinato, Technical Communication major at MCC, agrees that caring about your appearance and showing your well-put together matters.
“It’s how I met my girlfriend. Our first conversation was actually about my shoes,” said Pettinato.
Not only does the attire affect the way the ladies see the man, but also it gives him more confidence.
The study went on to show men who took the extra time to put an obvious effort into they’re style have more success in their relationships.
75 percent of Americans think that men who are well dressed are more successful in the work place.
“Its not so much your particular style as much as it is about being well put together and how you hold yourself in your own shoes.” Says Pettinato.
Women think that a man’s dress can improve his overall attractiveness physically and intellectually more then men do though.
Over 50 percent of the men surveyed said that their clothing portrays their personality and they’re interests.
Since we make connections through our interest’s people naturally read others to a degree by their attire before any actual interaction happens.
