Hey ladies—when was the first time you tried on a man’s shirt? Did it tempt you from a boyfriend’s closet, or did you happen to find it on a department store clearance rack?
The real question is why you reached for that particular item. What did it remind you of? Confidence? Comfort? Status? Luxury? Pure masculinity? Or did you imagine the face of someone you love?
There are a few elements that make some male clothes sexier than others, and it depends on your personal taste. The sexiest clothes are often the ones that show off a man’s personality or promote a sense of intimacy.
His Casual Side
Men’s casual styles range from sweats and tee-shirts to flannel shirts or basketball shorts and hoodies. What do you prefer?
Looks matter because they communicate something about your partner. Ratty tee shirts shout out a lack of motivation. Meanwhile, plain tee shirts like this Bomba crew neck tee shirt display a confident relaxation.
Nice tee shirts can show off the breadth of a man’s shoulders compared to his hips, too. In fact, women rated men who wore plain white tee shirts 10% more attractive than if they wore tee shirts with designs because they accentuate a man’s masculine V shape.
Flannel shirts are another hot pick. They look warm, soft, and cozy, which is perfect for cool snuggling weather. They can also bring to mind pictures of hiking, camping, fishing, and chopping wood, which can make women feel provided for and secure.
His Tailored Suit
Feeling provided for can have a luxurious side, too. Tailored suits can also bring the masculine V shape to the forefront. Combine it with a nice watch, a pair of M.Gemi handmade leather shoes, and designer sunglasses, and you might not want to look away.
According to a study published in Evolution and Human Behaviour, this is partly because women rate men who are rich higher than men who don’t make as much. Women’s instinctual mating strategies include finding someone who can provide well for her and her children. It makes sense that the hottest clothes could also be the ones that look the most expensive.
Being attractive is important for men to have sex appeal with a woman, this is a natural behavior that us as human beings have. The attractive scale is misunderstood in most instances, let me explain. There is someone for everyone so a man looking his best is important when that moment when they meet that one.
Sex Appeal that goes Beyond the Style
Sometimes the sex appeal of certain styles of men’s clothing has to do with your own frame of reference. If a particular look reminds you of a past lover or crush, and that experience was pleasant, you’ll probably react positively. If it reminds you of someone you can’t stand, you might not like the clothes.
Scent plays a part, too. Research shows that smelling a lover’s shirt or bedding can lower stress levels while smelling the shirt of a stranger increases stress hormones.
That might explain why women like to wear their partner’s shirts when they’re relaxing. Even if your partner is absent, the scent of the shirt could destress you, enhance your level of intimacy, and build the romantic bonds you have with your sweetie.
