For most men clothing is something that they pay not a whole lot of attention to and though they may want to look good and dress well it is more often than not a means to an end and not an end in itself. Shopping for clothes too is something that most men would really rather not do if they had the choice and many men do just that. For the most part they allow their wives, girlfriends or significant others to do the buying of clothes for them at the most accompanying them in an unwilling or at best semi willing fashion on the task.There lies the difference, women actually like the process of shopping and the whole process of looking for the perfect clothes. They like the process so much in fact that they do it for fun and they have invented a term called window shopping that means they go through all the motions of looking endlessly for clothes, shoes and accessories, try them out as well, spending hour after hour tying endless pairs of shoes on or going in and out of changing rooms as they model outfit after outfit for their girlfriends. Men on the other hand see shopping as task, one that needs to be accomplished in the swiftest and most efficient manner possible. Men always want to buy the first thing they see and go home.This is a truth that one does not have to be a man to know. Any woman who has ever had to drag a man to go shopping with her even if it is to buy mens clothes will know this – whether it is a boy friend, a father, a brother or a significant other or even just a friend who needs help with deciding what to buy.In the last decade or so this situation has gotten a little bit better as the fashion industry and the media at large have both managed to goad most men in to taking more of an interest in their appearance and their grooming and in spending more money and indeed time in buying men’s clothing and accessories. Men now put a lot of thought into clothing than they have ever before. There is also a new kind of man these days called the metro sexual man who takes as much care of his appearance as women do and puts as much though into what he wears. Most men though would rather not go shopping and for them there is a great new alternative now, online clothing stores.
