Research conducted by one of the UK’s leading premium menswear retailers, Woodhouse Clothing reveals that the first thing women notice about men is clothing and style.

Woodhouse asked over 100 women what they notice first about the opposite sex. The results revealed that:

  •     A resounding 45% of the women who took part selected clothing and overall style as the most noticeable thing about men
  •     The second is his hair 22%
  •     The third is his shoes 5%
  •     The fourth is his facial hair 2%
  •     The fifth is his scent 1%

Other responses (25%) took in height, body shape, teeth and smile.

Menswear buyer for Woodhouse Clothing, Gavin Crossland said, “We know that looking good in the eyes of the opposite sex is important to our customers so we were keen to understand what women notice about men when they first meet. The fact that 45% of the women who took part in the survey said that a man’s clothes were the first thing they noticed reinforces how important personal style is”

Gavin’s tips for this season are;

  •     Invest in a versatile piece of outerwear, a jacket that can take you from work, to the pub and even out on a date
  •     Knitwear is also key, warm autumnal colours and soft fabrics that can be worn smart or casual
  •     Never cut corners on footwear, invest in a smart pair of boots
  •     You can never fail with a bright white shirt to lift a whole outfit
  •     Accessories are key but don’t overdo it! A bag or simple hat sets any winter outfit off perfectly.

Joe Cotton of Woodhouse’s in-house barbers, Carter & Bond added, “the beard is now waning and the hairstyle is reclaiming its rightful number one spot. Our resident barber Ryan strives to combine what works best for a client’s hairline and the shape of his face, with a measure of what’s on trend – that measure is down to how adventurous the client feels.”
