Ladies, are clothes really what attract you to guys? If not clothes then what and if it"s clothes, what kind of clothes?

I really don`t care about a man`s clothes (of course they can`t be ugly or weird) I mean I don`t care if it`s "fashionable". just a t-shirt and jeans works for me! It`s all about him, not what he`s wearing.

the person who wrote that was a dratting idiot. first, claiming that fashion was strictly a woman`s arena is wrong. in the old days it was the men who wore the makeup to attract the ladies. the same with extravagant clothes because they denoted their status. second, when it comes to a woman being truly attracted to a man, I don`t think am "off kilter" man with crazy dreads will be it, if that was the case, every hobo with ripped jeans and dreads would be satisfied if you get my drift. I simply hate writers like her, reminds me of fricken Cosmo and the bullpoo "advise" they give women.

are you kidding me? clothes have nothing to do with it...i mean what do u want to do when ur attracted to someone? sex...at least in the end...and that requires taking OFF the clothes, the only reason why any of the guys in this article got any was because they are/were famous, rich, and or powerful
i thank you

You`d think the indie hippie hobo look would be in there.

Completely agreed with LemonTarte. I don`t like Bowie for his style, but his charm.

I think the attractiveness factor of these men have little to do with clothes and more to do with personality. They`re original, unique, and are complete individuals.

And don`t worry, no woman in their right mind would be attracted to Kanye West.

I think all those men had money...which is the REAL reason women liked them. Who cares what they have on, so long as they buy me diamonds!

as a lady who really only likes the ladies, i still find kurt cobain (as dead as he is) attractive. but i like the whole grundgy thing.
i really think it comes down to confidence without roosteriness, and perhaps the unconscious association between style of dress and behavior (ie. the whole `rock` look).

zelda- you have it. Confidence, and they wear the clothes, the clothes do not wear them. When did Bowie get his teeth straightened- and why?

D:
All these guys are unattractive or borderline hilarious-looking.
Is this what counts as `eccentric` for most people?
I am eccentric myself, so I consider eccentric to be more cobbled together. I love Visual Kei, if that`s a good reference for eccentric.
Oddly enough, traditional Japanese clothing as well as Victorian-era clothing (not at the same time) each have special places in my heart.
However, extremely simple casual wear (jeans and a worn-out tshirt) is fine too...
I guess I have odd tastes.

Alrighty, I thoroughly enjoyed that article up until they put King Douche Bag on there. D:

Anyway. What do all of these men wear? Confidence. And confidence is key.

HerColdHands: when you get older, you will see the beauty in those men. And by men, I mean all of them except Kanye West. He`s not a man, he is a douche bag.

I`m not going to lie like half the lot of you, outward appearances matter in the world! Whether a guy looks like a bum or a billionaire is up to him. Personally though the only reason i`d care about my guy`s clothes is whether or not they`re comfy enough for me to walk around his apartment in.

I agree with Madest. People don`t understand that somethings or some people just can`t be compared to each other. Kanye West and The Beatles being one of them. Or Britney Spears and Beyonce.

If you seriously think that Kanye West is better than the Beatles then every future comment of yours is invalid.

I think that clothes are a medium of expression. I don`t think I like a guy for his clothes, but I certainly like the way some guys dress. Of course, if you believe Kayne West to be eccentric, you have never seen a Japanese visual kei band XD

I think women like Kanye because of his talent. He`s way better than the Beatles, and that was four guys.

Clothes is definitely what FIRST attracts me to a guy. It shows their style, and what kind of person they could be.
For me what I find most attractive is anything that`s well tailored and fitted.
Who do I find most attractive out of those people? The Ramones.

No, not clothes. Possibly hair, but mostly personality. Guys: when a girl`s looking to get serious she wants someone who`s not just outwardly good-looking (although that helps) but someone who`s caring and funny. And - for my part - not coarse.

"Joey, Johnny, Tommy, and bassist Dee Dee`s downtown look turned Robin-Hood hair into something to be desired. Striped tops, painted-on denim, and teeny leather jackets ruled CBGBs, and if you look up and down the Bowery today, you`ll still see their influence."

That had to be the WORST description of the Ramones ever written.

Even money says whoever wrote that has never listened to the Ramones, or set foot in CBGB`s.
