Two in five women are embarrassed if their men go out in public with a scruffy appearance, a new study reveals.
The research, commissioned by Pot Noodle, a brand of Ramen-style instant noodle snack foods, reveals that nearly five percent of British men never wear a suit, with one of the primary factors being comfort.
The tradition of dressing up for a formal outing may also be on its way out for 20 percent of men, who admit they avoid nice restaurants simply because they find getting dressed up too much hassle, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
Only seven percent would wear a suit and tie to a fancy restaurant or formal occasion, while 14 percent admit they think it's acceptable to don a hoodie, or shorts and flip flops instead.
Karl Roche, brand manager, Pot Noodle, said: "We know times are changing and blokes are favouring a more casual style in the fashion stakes but that is no reason for lads not to smarten up from time to time."
