We’re guessing that many of you will have been down at the pub when a debate kicks off about why women dress a certain way, whether it’s always to please men, please themselves or show off in front of their mates (or secret answer d. all of the above)

Well we’re not psychologists, so can’t give you a definitive answer, but whether guys play a role in how women dress or not, it’s pretty clear some sartorial choices that are really popular among womenkind really REALLY irritate some men.

We conducted a study (OK, so we asked our Facebook and Twitter mates) into which style choices women make that really get to blokes and as you’d expect there’s some of the usual suspects, some surprise appearances and some that were just far too explicit to include.

Men, prepare to get agitated and angry, women, do whatever you like and never feel like you have to throw away those old UGGs that smell like wet dogs just to please a guy…

Thanks to everyone who got back to us, we’ve included some of your quotes throughout the gallery, but do let us know in the comments below if there are any we’ve missed out.

10. Gillets

Picture 1 of 10

The frustration with gillets spans both genders because, let's face it, they're not full pieces of clothing. If you're warm enough to wrap your body up into a torso-shaped quilt you'll probably need your arms covering too, but not with a gillet, a gillet makes sure your vital organs are snuggly but does away with those not-so-important limbs of yours. The gillet is a favourite among posh birds who may also be wearing an "I own a yacht" style hoody their daddy paid for, but men tend to deplore them because they take away any hint of the female form and make you look a bit too much like the Michelin man or a guy with a stately home who's taking his dogs out hunting. Oh and did we also mention it's not an actual piece of clothing? So ladies, we can't even get out the "oh it's so practical and cosy and comfy" card, because it's not. It's just a non-thing that could (maybe) give you frostbite. And no guy wants a girl without arms.
