Because when they go shopping, they only look at the clothes, while they look at themselves with their clothes on

We are not very aware of this and, as with everything, there are also exceptions to this. The men, when they go shopping, examine, some more carefully than others, the garments in hand and, if they are convinced, they hurry to queue in front of the counter. Unlike women, few, very few, try on clothes in front of the mirror . They don't look at each other. They can't imagine how it will turn out for them. They only see a garment, they like it and they wear it. Error.
They are the experts -we repeat, there are exceptions-. They have a practiced gift to choose better, to hit the first time, to find bargains in piles of impractical clothes and, above all, to hit the colors. Debates about the chromatic perception of both sexes aside, the explanation of this ability is found, plain and simple, in practice . They know how to combine because they are used to knowing it, because they orbit ten times more about themselves in front of the mirror, testing, comparing, undressing and dressing again. And because they have an innate wisdom to know which tones benefit them the most according to their physiognomy. As this quality in male brains is less fine-tuned, here are some basic tips to get by :
- 1. Complementary colors go well together . That is: red with green. For a t-shirt, for example. Yellow with blue, more of the same. For a tie, another example. More: orange with light blue. If they are dark, the others must also be dark. We cannot combine a dark red with a light green, nor a butane with a sky blue.
