wearing a tie on a first date will show to a woman that she is not just another 'swipe right' decision.
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) October 24, 2016
Bows-N-Ties, a San Francisco menswear accessory company asked over 1,000 single women, age 18-34, on their views on some of the hot menswear trends for 2016, and visualized the results via an infographic.
"We were really surprised by some of the responses," says Bows-N-Ties' marketing director Ashley Child. "One look that has been all over Instagram this Summer, is wearing a suit and dress shoes sans socks, and while we noticed men happily following this trend, most of them must not have known that women are actually turned off by it." In fact, 83% of women said that wearing a suit and dress shoes without socks is a turn off. Other questions that Bows-N-Ties were interested to find answers to is women's view on stubble vs a clean shaven look, if wearing a tie to a first date would make a positive impression, or what type of style women prefer on their men once they are in a relationship.
"We were surprised to find out that women do prefer to see their men dressed up with a tie on a first date, but once they are in a relationship, they want their significant other to dress much more casually," says Hendrik Pohl, founder of Bows-N-Ties.com. “Women want to know that the men they are dating are mindful, respectful and that they will rise to the occasion. There’s a graceful formality to neckwear. Simply put, wearing a tie on a first date will show to a woman that she is not just another 'swipe right' decision."
The survey showed that 72% of women would find it to be a turn-on if a man wore a tie to a first date. "What was also surprising to us is that once women are in a relationship, they prefer a much more dressed down look on their partner", says Pohl. Only 13% of women would find it attractive if their partner regularly wore suit and tie, and 57% of women preferred a Jeans and T-Shirt look over any other look.
