A research performed in the Nottingham Trent University in the UK has concluded that not only do women find men wearing plain white T-shirts 10 % more attractive than others, but adding a black letter “T” to the shirts would increase men’s attractiveness even more.
The research team asked women to rate the level of attraction as well as their views on the intelligence and health of a group of men wearing plain white T-shirts. These levels were tested again but with the same men wearing white T-shirts with different “T” configurations printed on the shirts.
The most attractive, according to the British study, were the men wearing the white T-shirts with a big black letter “T” printed on the front. According to the research team it was largely due to the visual improvement of the waist-to-chest ratio of the men.
On the other hand, the men who wore shirts with an inverted letter “T” printed on the front were perceived as less attractive, healthy or intelligent by 10% by the 30 ladies involved in the study.
