Don Draper is definitely on to something - it turns out girls might really be crazy about a sharp dressed man after all.
A recent study conducted by Men's Wearhouse found that clothes really do make the man, even on television where a not-so-nice guy might still get the girl when he's nattily attired.
Characters like Draper on "Mad Men", "How I Met Your Mother"s Barney Stinson (well know for his "suit up" advice) and Mr. Big on "Sex and the City" display that there is a lot to be said for setting a fashion standard.
"With the success of hit TV shows celebrating the glory days of crisp shirts, power ties, polished shoes, and sharp suits, there’s no better time to take a long, hard look at our country’s current state of fashion," the study results begin.
The study revealed findings including 91 percent of Americans think dressing well can make a man appear to be more physically attractive than he really is, eight in ten women would give up something in their lives — such as going out to dinner, using their cell phone, or even having sex for an entire year — for a better-dressed partner and three-quarters of Americans think well-dressed men are more successful in the workplace than their casual colleagues.
