"For our second partnership with DonQ's LadyData, we asked women for their thoughts on men's style. Thousands of ladies answered our call. Of course, we were surprised by some of the findings (as were a few of our favorite men's bloggers). But fear not, gents. Our fashion team provides helpful "style lessons" for a few of the trickier questions."

Similar survey from WWD.

http://sartoriallyinclined.blogspot....nk-factor.html

Bias here is that they only survey women in the "industry."

Summary: well-fitting pants, nice shoes, good bag, t-shirt, and stylish jacket. Above all, something with personality and lived in look - subtle and "effortless" so as to not look like you tried.

For what it's worth, my wife has made a point that I don't wear enough t-shirts. I countered that I wear one every day ... underneath my button ups.

Eunice Lee, Unis: "I tend to notice bad style first: I'll think how horrible his jeans, sunglasses or shoes are. But when a guy has great style, it's usually because he's understated, so then I'll notice his eyes or face first. The clothing should never overpower the guy."

This.

On an unrelated note - if one more girl in sweatpants and uggs asks me if I use that "pretty handkerchief in my pocket" to blow my nose
, I'm going to lose it.

Eunice Lee is pretty cool. Her clothes are pretty functional basics. I can see a lot of MC guys getting into her stuff as their weekend wear. It's what I'd hope for for the MC does SW&D contest.

What a waste of a perfectly good pocket square.
