If it comes from someone who is looking sharp, you can agree – OK, maybe that could work.
But that same sentence sure can be a deal killer when it comes from Tactical Dude or Dudette wearing pants with more pockets than a kangaroo convention.
And it sounds even less enticing when it comes from an unkempt person wearing a fishing vest over a stained tee shirt.
I don’t suppose anything will keep (well intentioned – or just clueless) guys from giving that advice to women. Usually from behind the fishing vest/stained tee-shirt.
