"Every girl's crazy 'bout a sharp-dressed man..." Is it true?

How much better does an average guy look in, say, a button-up and dress pants versus a t-shirt and jeans? Do clothes make a big difference to how good-looking a guy is?

  • True? Or untrue? Does it really matter? Nope! What matters is that how you dress says that you care about yourself and that you may care about the girl just as much as you do yourself. Just leave the ego at home and take modesty and gentlemanly behavior with you! If you dress nicely, you'll attract nice people. And if you're really worried, give yourself a complete makeover...better to be safe then sorry. If you want my personal opinion, I love a guy who not only dresses well, but is true to his own personal style as well. A guy who not only dresses the part, but is a gentleman too. There's nothing worse then a fake with an outer shell. My fiancee is English, he's an everyday gentleman, but knows when to relax and bum it in his rugby and football (soccer) shirts and then dresses like a complete stud when he knows it's the appropriate time...YUMMY! Try going for a nice buttondown, slightly loosened tie, tastefully messy spiked hair, casual shoes (no trainers or timberlands please!), and a dark wash, slightly worn jean! :) BTW,...that kind of outfit gets a girl every time. You don't have to be in a business suit to look good. Polished and presentable is key! :)

  • I think clothes do matter. When guys get a little dressed up it shows that he cares about his overall appearance and that is a turn on to most women. You also have to remember the occasion. For a first date, girls don't want a guy to show up in casual jeans and a white tee after they have been agonizing over what they were going to wear.( we do this, gentlemen) That sends off the vibe that you don't really care and impressing us isn't one of your worries.

    I personally find guys with a nice button-up shirt and slacks attractive.

  • From ages to 18-24...Most women prefer t shirts and jeans...

    From ages 30 and up, women prefer their men to find their own different sense of style. It lets us know that you're mature, and that you have ARRIVED!

    Personally, I prefer men that are polished and sophisticated (Blair Underwood, Idris Elba, and Laz Alonso). If I take time on my appearance, then a man should make the same effort. No woman wants to be at a jazz festival, art show, dinner date, or concert looking as if she dragged her younger teenage brother! In other words, if a man is over 30, leave the Timbs, t-shirts, and throwback jerseys at home!

  • No, not on how good-looking he is but depending on the location it makes an impression on what type of guy he is.

    I wouldn't like a guy to dress trampy on a date or anything but I am much more a fan of converse and jeans than trousers and shoes, although it's nice to dress up somtimes.

    I think it depends on the place, the situation, the guy and the girl!

    I think a guy should just be himself and wear what he wants and thinks is right, if she doesn't like it then she's obviously not someone who is compatible! :o)

  • i like button ups, but I like nice fitting jeans; I don't like dress pants at all.

    i like a guy to look like he tries, but he doesn't need to be a fasionista. I like flannel shirts and I like skater type shoes.

    it's an over-generalization to say that all girls like sharp-dressed men.

  • well honestly it depends on the occassion, even if we do like it, if the guy keeps wearing it on a daily basis, it won't be hot no more!

    but if he wears like shirt and jeans more often and slips into a suit every once and a while, for like a fancy dinner, wedding, new years eve or something special he would diff. look awesome and we d appreciate it!

    but to me honestly I can tell if the guy knows about fashion just by a look at his Jeans! so I prefer to see him in a casual look for everyday.

  • It's true for some girls, but not all. I really don't place much emphasis on clothes. I do like guys who wear t-shirts and jeans, and button-ups can be nice too (dress pants aren't necessary for casual occasions). A guy in my class showed up in sweatpants and a long-sleeved shirt--nothing special, but it looked good on him. That's what matters.

  • I think clothes play a big part either way. It's people's personal preference. Now me...I LOVE the military uniform from the PT's to the ACU's to the Class A's :). But my roommate, she loves a guy who is totally punked out, leather jacket, hair a mess, and on a motorcycle. It's all personal preference

  • what matters more is if a guy can own his look, a guy who looks hot either way, is more important.

    for me, I'm ok with guys who dress casual but not too casual.

  • Depends on when and where. If we're hanging out at a bonfire and we're doing woodsy-out-doorsy stuff, it would be ridiculous to be dressed nicely and I would immediately be put off by his inability to dress appropriately. However, if we're somewhere that either casual or dressier is appropriate (say a musical?), the dressier is much more attractive. So really, a guy needs to be able to pull off both to be a "well-dressed" man in my eyes.

  • It depends on what kind of guy your into but for the most part yes a lot girls like a man who takes care of themselves and know how to dress it's something every girl looks for in a guy unless your not social and are kind of nerdy then you'll take what you can get but if you want a girl who's hot dress to impress

  • They don't necessarily make you better looking, but they make you more noticeable to us. A man in a business suit signals to a woman that he's successful, which we find sexy. A suit also shows us you know how to clean up and look good, which we can definitely appreciate.

  • Depends on the occassion. I happen to find it sexy when a guy is in tour up jeans and a dirty tshirt after workin hard. I also find it quite attractive when a guy gets dressed up for special events. I like a guy who wears both because I know that I'm not the most fashionable girl in the world

  • I actually prefer t-shirt and jeans, but it just has to look put together! and the clothes just have to be cool and fit the guy well. guys do have to be well dressed, that makes a really good impression on us chicks BUT to me it's more important how cleanly they are.. like they have to shave (unless the can actually grow a beard & it looks good on them), smell good, get rid of acne (!), do something with their hair, shower every day :P and all that. basically we just have to be able to tell that they take care of them selves and their looks

  • Well clothes definitely make a statement but the man inside them does too. If your hair is greasy and you *obviously* haven't bathed in a month and have seven teeth missing but you are in dress pants and a button-up shirt I'm gonna choose the showered guy in jeans and a t shirt. Clothes are part of it but the man inside counts just as much.

  • dressing nice makes you stand out. I wouldn't not date someone if they had unfortunate personal style, but if I were to base my interest purely off of an instantaneous reaction to seeing them for the first time, I wouldn't be into it.

  • i don't mind t-shirt and jeans, but guys who are well-dressed give off the vibe that they care about what they look like and want to impress others. it shows they're confident and if they can take care of themselves, they can take care of a girl, too.

What Guys Said 6

  • I think there's a fairly strong degree of truth to this statement. For work I have to dress up at times. My Perry Ellis 3 button classic pinstripe suit with a bold tie (think crimson red) has received a lot of attention from the girls. Girls like a bold, classy and polished dresser.

    So many guys dress like complete slobs that you'll stand out of the pack if you know how to dress up. I've been guilty of dressing poorly at times myself and generally speaking, it isn't a good way to attract the girls.

    Granted, there are a few tomboyish and low-main. types of girls out there that love a guy in sweatpants and a hoodie, but as you get older, most girls expect you to HAVE AND WEAR a nice dress shirt and shoes once in awhile.
