The Male Guide to Selecting an Outfit
We all know that men are not quite as adept at fashion as women. In fact guys will pretty much wear anything, anytime, with anything. This creates the false impression that guys just "throw" any old thing on.

This however is not the case. As this handy little guide points out, getting dressed is a highly complex and organized ritual for men.
