 Survey Says 60 Percent of Men Seek Style Advice from Partners

A new survey has found that 60 percent of men consult their partners on what to wear before heading to work.

One in five revealed that they like to have an outfit prepared for them on a daily basis, while others always ask for a second opinion before venturing out, the Daily Mail reported.

Although some men might express an interest in fashion but according to the research most would rather let their partner to dress them.

Many believed that they trusted their partner's judgement more than their own while others let their partner take control because it was something they enjoyed.

Most common items that men selected for themselves comprised socks, underwear and shirts.

Gill Politis, director of High and Mighty, a men's fashion retailer which conducted the survey, said that based on her own experience, the findings did not surprise her.

"Looking your best for the office is really important. From giving the best first impression to shining in the boardroom, making sure you are dressed to impress really can make all the difference to how confident you feel at work," she said.

"It comes as no surprise to me that the majority of men are dressed by their wife or partner as we see many of our customers coming into store and waiting patiently whilst their other half picks out what they think will look best.

But it is not just advice that men look for as many said that they also let their partner physically dress them.

The survey revealed that men ask their partner to do up their tie (58 per cent), straighten their collar (43 per cent), help them with their cufflinks(36 per cent) and to button up their shirt (29 per cent).

The poll also divulged that men aged between 18 and 24 are most likely to let their partner dress them for work every day and those aged between 35 and 44 are least likely to rely on a partner to help them dress.
