What do your clothes say about you?

Are you familiar with that popular saying by Mark Twain, "Clothes make the man. Naked people have little or no influence on society."

As much as we love the sentiment, could you imagine everyone in their 'birthday suits', what a world it would be! Modesty at its best...

Well, in the 'real-world' we wear clothes and it prompted researchers at the University of Michigan to look into people's perceptions on the wearing of 'in-your-face' branding on clothing (LadBible).

"In a study published in the Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin, it found men who don this type of clothing are more likely to be scumbags.

Without looking into the numbers, can we just say, 'WHOA!' 

"Hundreds of students at the university were shown two different polo shirts, one with a humble, small logo and another with a very large logo...The study found people believe those who wear the polo with a larger logo 'rated higher on mating effort and lower on parental investment'.

So in plain terms, those men that were found to wear larger logos weren't looking for serious relationships, while those with smaller logos were more trustworthy and reliable. 

Researchers found that participants in the study believed that the flashy logo wearers were more likely to cheat and be on the flirty side. 

Regardless, we think that we should never judge a book by its cover, so come now be fair and get to know people regardless of what they wear!
