Which clothing item do you usually check out first to form your initial judgment or first impression on a man?

If he spends too much on clothes relative to net worth/income/financial responsibilities, then I would consider him irresponsible.

If you want to impress women, wear suits.
Most women love a man in a suit. Suit projects an image of authority and strength. A well fitted suit flatters male physique by making the shoulders appear wider, and somewhat hiding the belly.

On the other hand, most men hate wearing suits, or barely tolerate them if they have no choice. Suits are uncomfortable, hot, expensive, and high-maintenance.

So, unfortunately, we have a win-lose situation here.

"Clothes do make the man", yes. Collared sport shirts!

I love a man in a suit, but it has to be situationally appropriate.

Otherwise, I have a habit of checking to see what kind of shoes he's wearing. Good shoes score points with me. As do shoes that are well-kept. Flip-flops and athletic shoes, unless appropriate for the situation, are a negative.

I more inclined to believe the man makes the clothes, not the other way around. Not quite as cliche as you are what you eat, but I do believe you are what wear to a degree.

I love to see a man in a suit or tux . I think a well fitted suit or tux makes a man look very nice and especially if it is a formal occasion . .

this brings me back to something i learned in high end sales...never ever judge a person by the covers they're wearing...dig in a little on that surface and you might discover a hidden gem......

100% agree.

I always notice great shoes. And great shoes can range from dress to casual. But really it is all about how you put it together.

I saw a well-dressed guy the other day, who on paper I shouldn't have thought was well dressed. His outfit included baggy pants. He added great sneakers, a well fitting sweater, and well coordinated greens and blues. It was a win.

I fixed that for you. I think suits work for everyone, anytime a good impression is needed, whether for work or otherwise, a suit works wonders.

My son is 20, and a good suit is one of his must-haves in his wardrobe. He's a sharp dresser. Thankfully, he figured out the magic of looking one's best many years ago.
