Guys Don't Know Their Style Till Age 37

Style sense, like wisdom, comes with age.

If you’re 36 or younger and still struggling with your fashion sense, you’re not alone.

Before age 37, a new survey says, 23% of men say they don’t know what looks good on them, compared with just 8% of dudes 37 or over. Of the under-37s, 27% also keep clothing until it falls apart in fear of trying to replace it, and 17% find shopping so heinous they'll grab just about anything off a rack just to keep the trip short.
