London: A new study has found what many women have for long complained -- men are clueless about what to wear, with most relying on the lady in their life to select dresses for them.
In the study, based on a survey, two thirds of male respondents admitted that they usually rely on their wife or girlfriend to pick out ties, shirts, suits and even their shoes before venturing out. The majority have confessed they need the most help on a Monday morning, blaming their own lack of confidence when it comes to style.
Half say they are actually "dressed" by their wife -- who does up their tie or -- fastens their cuff links. One in six men has help to pick out what to wear every day, and one in five has clothes laid out in front of them most days, the survey found.
The survey also revealed some of the reasons why men let their other half choose their clothes. A third of them said they trust a woman`s judgement but one in six just "give in for an easy life", the `Daily Express` reported. "Many men want to be better dressed, but lack style knowledge and confidence. That`s why millions of men are relying on women in their lives -- particularly their wives or partners -- to help choose what to wear, not just at work but for other occasions.
"Many men feel like they are stuck in a style rut and don`t know where to begin when it comes to sorting out their fashion sense," a spokesman for www.stylepilot.com, an online style adviser for men which carried out the poll, said. (PTI)
