Women Say Men Have Lost Their Fashion Swagger
Men need to step up their style, according to a national survey conducted by GQ and Van Heusen to get the pulse of what women think about American men’s style today.
When it comes to dressing to impress, the survey found that men’s number one priority was a job interview and their second was dressing for a big meeting. Deciding what to wear on a first date came in third. Men would not even give importance to dressing just for meeting their girlfriend’s parents.
Most men (93%) are not even aware when it’s time for them to update their styles. Women even agreed (94%) that men need an upgrade in wardrobe.
Here are some more findings:
Men need to focus on choosing clothes that fit nicely;
Women said that “baggy pants” and “baggy shirts” are two of the biggest style mistakes that a guy can make;

The way the research went, it seems that men have lost their swagger when it comes to dressing. Men, it’s time to step up our game and reclaim the swag.
