Thanks very much for your comments. You raise other issues in the comments that I did not look at in the research (such as how well clothes fit, quality of material, grooming etc). These are all valid issues. The research I mentioned in the blog published in the journal Sex Roles (Sex Roles: A Journal of Research. February 2015, Volume 72, Issue 3-4, pp 105-116, DOI 10.1007/s11199-015-0450-8) also showed how judgements of women applying for different kinds of jobs might be affected by quite minor changes in their clothing. I would guess the minor differences in people's clothing has much greater effects on how they are perceived and evaluated than they could imagine........
