One in five men wear the same shirt to work three times a week but most wish they were more stylish, poll… – The Sun

A FIFTH of UK men admit to wearing the same shirt to work three times a week even though many aim to be more stylish.
Men across the country admit they are stuck in a rut when it comes to clothing, with office workers having an average of five "looks" on rotation.
According to a new poll of 1,000 men, 52 per cent say they repeat outfits each week and 21 per cent admit to wearing the same shirt up to three times a week.
Similarly, one in ten choose the same jumper for work as many as four times a week.
Meanwhile, 38 per cent own a "lucky shirt" to wear to important events like job interviews and meeting a partner's family for the first time.
All this has left men feeling in a slump fashion-wise.
The survey found that 40 per cent don't feel good in their current clothes and three in ten think a style overhaul would make them feel more comfortable.
Almost half of men say they struggle to dress appropriately for different occasions, with over 20 per cent looking for light and airy fits, as well as clothes that are easy to look after.
This seems to reflect an overall shift in men's fashion, with over half of those asked noticing a trend away from a plain shirt and tie and towards more stylish outfits being acceptable at work.
There is a clash in workplace styles shown by the study as 41 per cent feel they are taken more seriously at work when dressed smartly, while 45 per cent say they like to use style to express themselves.
A spokesperson for clothing company Charles Tyrwhitt, which commissioned the study, said: "In the past, men could rely on a simple shirt and tie uniform for most of life’s occasions.
"However, today there are new style territories from the ‘smart’ business meeting, to a 'regular' day in the office to ‘working from home’."
They added: "It’s no wonder men feel stuck in a rut in their current wardrobe – new codes of dressing create new challenges."
The spokesperson went on to advise men that a "collection of stable basics" can't go wrong and that other pieces can be mixed in to add variety.
