    i have a habit of wearing polo shirts or t-shirts most of the time that are dark colours. they are usually all one colour, sometimes with a bit of pattern on them. i cant help but think it makes me look subdued and not as vibrant, lively and good as other guys. i see some with patterned shirts or good style shirts and they get loads more attention. i have worn dark colours for most of my life but i'm thinking if i wore some brighter, more vibrant colours, i'd appear more attractive. my trousers are fine - blue or black jeans and i think i look good in them. but my shirts could be better. so is this true? thanks for all serious replies

    No its mainly about the face if he is good looking or not. Clothes can be changed.

    Probably, but it doesn't mean what you wear doesn't suit you.

    I reckon I give off the impression though that I couldn't be arsed about clothes, it's probably not the best impression to give but well it's true.

    A brighter shirt attracts the eye I suppose. I wouldn't personally say it made them more attractive, maybe more noticeable perhaps.

    Colours and pattens do make a difference.... I personally hate the current checked shirt craze, and how you look round a dance floor and see 4 or 5 guys in exactly the same shirt! Not cool.

    The biggest difference though is getting properly fitting shirts. All my shirts go to a tailor, or I buy from a tailor in the first place. It doesnt cost much, either £10 to get them tailored, or if you buy from the shop then complete tailoring is included in the price. £25 for a good quality shirt with full tailoring is bloody good! It makes such a huge huge difference between a "standard" shirt and a tailored one which fits well.

    I always wear polo shirts or shirts, not a fan of just t-shirts. Normally dark colours or a dark jumper with a light (by light I mean white or grey) polo shirt under it.

    The most vibrant and 'risky' items of clothing I own are a brown hoodie with a red and grey inside hood from GAP (love it) and a long sleeved polo shirt without the collar (if that makes sense) that is blue and white thin stripes.

    Vibrant colours are for people that want to seem really kooky, i.e every male that shops at Topman

    Adidas joggies and a Fiorentina top is definitely the way forward.

    I use a small local place, probably not much use to you unless you live in Coventry. Have a look in your town centre or ask some menswear places, they would probably know where is best if they dont offer the service themselves.

    where's all the pschology bods when u need 'em? ah, that's right, they're all trying to score some weed, well it is the weekend! colours have an instant effect on perception and have been proven to reflect personality on several levels. Although you claim that you're a confident person your choice of understated colours says otherwise as you don't feel confident enough to wear them and stand out. a huge amount of research is out there, large retailers know how important it is so spend a bomb on promoting certain colours. cadbury's is a fantastic example with purple. 2000 years ago the romans knew it too, they would have potential business deals negotiated in a purple room as it made the parties involved more relaxed and receptive to offers. The lady that mentions red is spot on, it signifies confidence and strength, and the ladies do like a strong man. if you're a bit of a porker then darker colours are good however you can choose a dark maroon/burgundy for almost the same effect. if your pale skinned then autumn colours are good, dark skinned then summer colours etc. look for a stylists colour wheel, it'll match colours to personalities and skin tones. once you've nailed it you'll never look back! good luck and hope you get laid soon, TK Maxx has a massive sale on at the mo' so you're half way there.

    i should add that there's always a dark side - the guys that wear red have also been proven to be more prone to aggression and violence, so careful what you wish for ladies.

    What about if a guy wears a dark colored T-shirt or polo with something like an Umbro logo on it (i.e not a very eye catching shirt) but has broad shoulders, puffed up chest, thick back and arms that fill the sleeves? Would that make up for the lack of wardrobe eye-catchyness/attractiveness?

    I have a mixture. I have a few bright coloured shirts but wear them rarely. I like to stick to colours like black, grey and navy. It might not catch the eye but at least it's tasteful. I know people who go out in shiny sparkly shirts and green jumpers. They look silly.

    I only use Topman for plain coloured shirts, cardigans and jumpers. If I ever buy a striped/patterned/chequed shirt on the high street I try my best to get one from the back of the rack so no-one else finds it and buys it.

    Topman makes all men look like clones.
