“Wearing the right clothes could get you promoted!” says clothes retailer
Want a promotion? Wear a light blue shirt and a dark blue tie (but four in five men DON’T bother wearing a suit to work)
Men wanting a promotion should come to work wearing a light blue shirt and dark blue tie, a new study reveals.
New research released today suggests the elegant two tone outfit is the best way to create a good impression in the office.
Failing that, red and purple ties are the next most popular garments to wear for those looking to do well at work.
And not putting on a suit in the morning appears to have had an effect on the career of some British workers.

Who would have thought that the shirt you wear can have such an influence on your career trajectory? Well, the leaders of clothing retailer Jacamo, for one:
The average man now spends £193 a year on office clothes, the study by menswear retailer Jacamo found…
Martin Roberts from Jacamo said: ‘Creating the right impression in the workplace can make a real difference to your performance.
‘The rules used to be fairly straightforward, buy a suit and wear a clean shirt…
‘With more clothing lines and sizes now available, men have the choice to dress and look how they want – both at work and at play.’
“Dressing like your friend is a good way to compliment him!” says men’s clothing retailer
Will real men flatter a pal? Study shows they are scared of being called ‘soft’
ALMOST half of British men shy away from telling their friends they look nice for fear of being called “soft”, a study has revealed.
More than a third avoid talking about fashion or their feelings at all when they are out with the lads.
If one of their mates is looking particularly dapper, nearly a quarter admit to teasing them with a wolf-whistle instead of complimenting them outright.
And imitation really is the sincerest form of flattery for the one in 10 who copies his stylish friend’s look.

Ticking the ‘blokey bloke-bloke’ box perfectly, we have this Express story highlighting exactly how proper blokes don’t go around doing girly silly things like being nice to each other. Or so one particular menswear retailer would like you to think:
Martin Roberts of menswear brand Jacamo, which carried out the poll of 1,502 men, said: “The idea of a ‘man code’ is something most blokes would recognise – it takes different forms but having our own language means we can speak freely, wherever we are.”
“Men worry about their weight!” says clothing retailer specialising in larger sizes
Do men now worry more than women about feeling fat on the beach? 20 per cent feel self-conscious about their body on holiday
It’s not just the girls who feel self-conscious about stripping down to their bikinis on holiday, worried about flabby bits, wobbly bits and crinkly bits: men feel nervous about baring all in front of the beach-bound public, too.
In fact, 20 per cent of the boys are anxious about feeling fat in their trunks, and one in 10 are nervous about baring (nearly) everything in public.
As a result, men are spending more money and time than ever getting ‘beach-ready’ before they jet off; one in 10 are spending more on pre-break treatments and training than on their actual holiday.

Who conducted the research highlighting and reinforcing the insecurity men feel about their bodies?
The average man is spending out £112 on training and treatments, according to the survey by menswear retailer, Jacamo, with 12 per cent spending £300 and starting preparations two months before they jet off.
