Even more reason to ask, then.
What might be the reason?
The same reason you ask someone how your hair looks or if a certain hairstyle would look good on you. To get another opinion that may influence your own opinion. Because they will see you with it and you want to look good.
Oh, Why he asked me specially?
Because you have to see it the most and you're the person he would want to look good to the most.
