Most men have no fucking idea what to wear, new study finds

Who hasn’t stood, sweating, in front of a mirror and thought aloud: “What the fuck am I doing? I can’t do this. I can’t do… I don’t have anything to wear. Am I even allowed to say that? Is that something men are allowed to moan about? I don’t even know anymore. How can everyone else get dressed without fuss and I’m stood here, like a cunt, having a nervo about what shoes go with these trousers? I don’t even want to go. I don’t even like my brother’s fiance. The whole thing is a sham. I’m staying home and re-watching Breaking Bad even though the first series is quite hammy and dull.” 

We’ve all been there, right? Turns out that you are not alone (although you are right about Breaking Bad). The data bods at American start-up bro magazine Fast Company ran a recent study that found that most men are really, really bad at deciding what to wear. Per their study: 81% of men report having trouble getting dressed for an occasion, 73% admit to having arrived at an event feeling inappropriately dressed, and a third of men have skipped an event because they didn’t have the right outfit.

Funeral

Funerals: a bloody nightmare all round

Other less-eye-opening things were also found: men found job interviews, weddings, and dates the most stressful to dress for and also 48% of men surveyed said they had no idea what to wear to a funeral. Here’s a tip, lads: wear a grey suit. It’s more versatile than a black one, doesn’t make you feel like you’re back at school, and you can wear it for other non-funeral engagements.

Just don’t wear brown shoes with it. Please. Promise me. Okay. Good. I trust you.
