The Perfect Man…

Leonardo’s Vitruvian Man

At Bowes-Lyon Partnership, we firmly believe neither the perfect man or woman exists. But this isn’t such a bad thing as wouldn’t a relationship with Mr. or Miss Perfect be boring afterall?!

But clothes retailer, Austin Reed, has conducted a poll, which identifies a woman’s ‘perfect man’…it makes for interesting reading!

A woman’s perfect man earns £48K, drives an Audi and drinks beer, according to a new poll by Austin Reed.  Stylish clothes, a good body, and a clean shaven face are also a ‘must’, revealed a survey of 2,000 women, while poor DIY skills and vegetarianism, don’t pass muster.  The ideal man must also be able to swim, ride a bike, and make family his top priority (while maintaining a high-earning job, of course).

And, although girls don’t like their other half to be too ‘deep’ (with 43% preferring their chap to joke around and have a laugh than enjoy in-depth conversations), 86% say they want a man who is sensitive, calls his mother regularly and cries during films.

A spokesperson for Austin Reed said: “It would seem that women have high expectations when it comes to the perfect man. How a man is presented is obviously going to be a huge part of that. While women don’t want a man to be too preened, they would like him to be stylish and up to date with current trends.”

Researchers found the dream man will have short dark hair and a smart dress sense – similar to that of TV presenter Steve Jones.  So, do any of these guys fit your ‘perfect man’ bill?

So, it seems we now know what the perfect man looks like, but what about the perfect woman? The team at Bowes-Lyon Partnership would love to know your thoughts, so drop us a line!
