Just in terms of basic physical attractiveness, does wearing a suit make a guy more attractive or less attractive in your eyes?

Depends on HOW he wears the suit and how it fits him.

I've seen some men look like absolute slobs wearing a suit that's too big, sleeves too long...just sloppy dressing.

A well-fitting suit on a good looking, fit man can make my knees all wobbly!

I should add too that he has to BE the man wearing the suit. If he's effeminate or wishy-washy that doesn't fly. A man in a suit that carries himself with confidence is very attractive.

Doesn't matter, TK, it all depends on his personality and how much charm he radiates outwards towards the general public.

I agree with this. I am a daily suit and tie wearer for work and just yesterday, I came home for lunch (live a few blocks from work) and when the wife saw me in my favorite most expensive suit, with black fitted polo shirt with purple polo horse and expensive tie that matched the purple, she got this "gleem" in her eye and ended up having to jump my bones right then and there. She said that I just looked so dang good in that "outfit" that she couldnt help herself. Had I been wearing some dockers or cheapo shirt I would not have gotten lucky.

I think a well fitted suit that makes the man look confident/rich is definitely appealing to women. The effects could be shown on a bbc special called the "science of sex/attraction". They found a nerdy looking philosophy professor or something and put him in a store display window and asked women on the street to rate him and would they date him, and what his job and salary was. THey said he was ugly, poor, and a janitor. THen a stylist team made him over, with a new hair cut, shades and a business suit. And women instantly rated him like a 8 or higher, said he makes over 100k, and is a businessman and YES they would date him. So yes a good business suit, or just looking clean cut and rich is a great way to attract women (but gold diggers too lol)

LOL, I love my husband in a suit...he doesn't have to wear one often to work but when he does, he gets lucky everytime!

Yes, a well-dressed man has a very commanding aura and that is most definitely a turn-on (for me anyway).

Depends on the guy, depends on the suit. Some guys look great in them , others are swamped by it and simply look uncomfortable.

An attractive guy will look attractive in pretty much anything IMO but some clothes suit some people better. I think a guy who looks comfortable in his skin and his clothes has a lot more chances of being attractive.

A cheap suit is about as smart as a tracksuit in my opinion. Many older men seem to think a suit is always smarter and more respectful but I don't agree. Sartorially I think it is better to wear your clothes than to be worn by them.

I personally like the casual smart look much better than suit generally but then again some chaps look fab in beautifully cut and tailored suits.

Hubby has to wear a suit and tie every day as it is expected of him and he hates it. He looks nice in it but IMO is much sexier in beige slacks, a good quality blue shirt and a blazer. And looks just as smart. But apparently business requires suits...

Absolutely. A suit is always going to get my attention.
