I agree, but I think that a greater fraction of men are more comfortable in jeans and tees, and wear suits and ties only because their work requires it, so the suit and tie is a uniform, rather than an expression of personality. They couldn't care less, and it shows. On the other hand, they would wear jeans and tees given the choice, and so their choices in those articles show their personalities more. There are, of course, many exceptions to the rule (many of them on this board.)
