I just always found it curious how its more socially acceptable for women to wear tighter clothes in public than men. Especially since in the past women weren't allowed to show any part of their body in public.
I'm also thinking about the jeans topic where its hard for women to find jeans that fit right. (Perhaps thats why leggings gained popularity.) If men wore just as tight of jeans would they have just as much trouble? If women wore looser jeans would they fit better?
Also, you know how when men dress in women's clothes for comedy skits. And the clothing is way too small for them, which is part of the joke. I'm just curious if it would look as unusual if the women's clothes on men fit better. Like they took a typically female attire and made the measurements for a certain male's body.
One more thing, its always men thinking women dress and act in ways to turn guys on. But the stereotype is men always think about sex and don't necessarily need the women to do anything to turn them on. So if men are the ones that are trying to have sex, it should be them dressing and acting in ways to turn women on. Men should be trying to get women to come to them not men going to women. I guess its kind of going that way with men starting to wear tighter fitting clothing.
I don't mean any of this to insult or criticize. I'm just curious. I know there's flaws in some of my logic so while you answer the questions if you see the flaws let me know.

I would say because me like and accept it. Men do not get significantly more attractive by wearing tight clothes. We just aren't that visual. If you buy those bodycocon dresses the headline usually always goes like "sexy, slimming, tight blue dress". it's supposed to turn men on.
Like take her for example. I'm sure most men would find that she looks significantly more sexually attractive in the second picture
And the same goes for average girls. If they have a somewhat decent body it's attractive if they show it. The same is not true for men. or only for really hot men, for guys with an average body, they look significantly better in clothes that flatter the male figure (i.e a suit)
The second thing is that clothes say something about us. The suit is the traditional symbol of the working class, these days has become more of a sign of wealth, but I'm sure 300 years ago men wearing very tight pants would have been most attractive because that's how the ruling class dressed. The t-shirt was army underwear and then became a symbol of america and freedom from there. For women, well these days it seems like being attractive is the major thing in landing a good partner, not status or something like that so it's logical for women to flaunt that
In the past it was different. most people liked to marry within their class, so expensive dresses for women also indicated their fathers or husbands wealth.
And as for why it more covered up. Well precisely because people assumed everything else would turn on men. And in times where premarital or adultery was the worst0
