Suits you, sir! 60 per cent of men consult partners before heading to work
Some men might express an interest in fashion but according to research most would prefer their partner to dress them.
Findings suggest that 60 per cent of working men consult their other half before heading to the office.
One in five revealed that they like to have an outfit prepared for them on a daily basis, while others always ask for a second opinion before venturing out.

Many said that they trusted their partner's judgement more than their own while others let their partner take control because it was something they enjoyed.
The most common items that men had selected for them were socks, underwear and shirts.
Gill Politis, director of High
and Mighty, a men's fashion retailer which commissioned the poll, said that based on her own experience, the findings are unsurprising.
She said: 'Looking your best for the office is really important.
From giving the best first impression to shining in the boardroom,
making sure you are dressed to impress really can make all the
difference to how confident you feel at work.
'It comes as no surprise to me that the
majority of men are dressed by their wife or partner as we see many of
our customers coming into store and waiting patiently whilst their other
half picks out what they think will look best.'
But it's not just advice that men seek, many said that they also let their partner physically dress them.
From doing up their tie (58 per cent),
straightening their collar(43 per cent), helping with their cufflinks(36 per cent) to
helping button up their shirt (29 per cent) it seems men are more than happy to
let their partners do the work.
Single men who were questioned turned to family members or close friends to kit them out with the right clothes.
Finding suggest men aged between 18 and 24 are most likely to let their partner dress them for work every day.
Meanwhile men aged between 35 and 44 are least likely to
rely on a partner to help them dress.
