The Wall St. Journal—the largest American newspaper, and one that has the most readers in the world—published an article today titled, “How Geometric Fit of German Women’s Clothing Is Being Distributed to Men.”
In this article, the article’s authors say that a new study that examined the “geometric fit” of German men’s clothing by using the “Women’s Fit Survey,” found that “many men and women in Germany” felt like they were wearing the same clothes, with a few exceptions.
The article notes that the study was conducted by Dr. Martin Muhlbach of the University of Würzburg and his colleagues, and the findings are consistent with earlier research that found that men and other men are less likely to like their clothing to be “geometrically” shaped.
In addition, the study’s authors conclude that the data “suggests that men’s and women’s clothes are different in the way they fit, whether they are made of cotton or polyester, and that this difference is most pronounced in men’s workwear.”
As with other studies that have investigated the “women’s fit” phenomenon, the results of the study are in line with previous research, which has found that women’s fashion preferences are more flexible than men’s, and thus are more likely to favor the “correct” style.
As the article notes, “this result could be due to a difference in the degree of physicality in the styles.”
A few notable exceptions were men’s suits with a “sexy” silhouette, while women’s suits were more likely than men to wear skirts, while in some cases, women’s tops were more restrictive.
The study was published in the Journal of Consumer Psychology.
Dr. Muhlfeldt and his team analyzed the results from the Women’s Fit Study conducted by Muhlsberg and Associates, a research company that has previously surveyed the “wearing habits” of nearly 5,000 men and nearly 3,000 women.
Dr Muhmlfelda said that “the most important thing to note” in their study is that “in both men’s clothes and women-specific clothing, the shape of the garment was an important factor.
In particular, the more men and the more women were wearing clothes with different shapes, the better they were at determining what suits to buy.
Thus, men and their clothing were more flexible, which is why the majority of men preferred their clothes to be made of polyester.”
The authors also found that, while many men felt that their clothing was “geometry,” women felt that it was “shape.”
This is consistent with a recent study that also found the same results, which was published last year by researchers at the University College London.
The researchers looked at “gender stereotypes of women’s body shape and fit.”
They found that when it came to the question of what women wear, the research team found that more than half of men said that women were “too restrictive” when it comes to the “fitting” of their clothing.
While this was consistent with the findings of previous research that has found men are more open to wearing “geographical” styles than women, the researchers noted that this finding was not statistically significant.
“It could be that men have a more restrictive attitude towards ‘geometry’ than women,” Dr Muflbach told The Wall ST.
“This could be because of the social context in which they live and how they perceive ‘geography’ in terms of their own body shape, or simply because they think that ‘geographic’ clothes are the right way to wear them.”
Dr. Paul Tait, a senior lecturer in sociology at the university, added that the findings “suggest that men are also more restrictive towards the ‘fitting’ of their clothes, but this difference appears to be more pronounced in the women’s garments, where there was no evidence of a gender difference in how men and girls dress.”
A woman’s suit, a men’s jacket, and a women’s shirt were all surveyed in the Women & Men’s Study.
The men’s suit was the most restrictive, with the study finding that, “only 15% of men felt comfortable in wearing suits with ‘sexy’ shapes, whereas 60% of women felt this way.”
Women’s clothing was the least restrictive, which “suggested that women prefer their clothing with shapes that are more appropriate for them,” Dr Tait told The Walrus.
The data also indicated that women in general were more willing to pay extra for clothing that is “geographically” appropriate.
“In other words, if the woman is comfortable in a suit, then her clothes will be comfortable for her,” Dr. Tait said.
“So if the suit is designed with ‘Geometry’ in mind, then she will be more likely be willing to spend more money on that particular suit.”
