The latest research from a group of Australian economists suggests that Cambridge suits are far more popular with men than women.
The study, published in the Journal of Consumer Research, suggests that men spend more on suits than women, and that women buy less than men.
It is the first to find that suits are not only less expensive than casual dress shirts, but they are also more expensive than other clothing.
The researchers looked at data from over 2,000 suits in Australia from 2003 to 2013.
It found that men bought suits at a higher rate than women for the first time.
The authors also found that women’s purchases were about 20 per cent lower than men’s purchases.
In 2013, men bought 7.5 per cent of suits compared to 5 per cent for women.
Women bought 7 per cent less than the next closest category of clothes (white shirts) in 2013, according to the study.
Men were also more likely to buy suits in their 20s than women were.
But they bought more in their 30s, 40s and 50s than they did in their early 20s.
And the average price of a suit was significantly higher in their late 20s, and early 30s.
It rose to more than $1,300 for men and $1 of $1.25 for women in their mid-to-late 20s (around $1K in 2013 dollars).
The study was conducted by the University of Melbourne’s Business School and also involved researchers from the Australian Institute of Business Research and the Australian Taxation Office.
This is not the first study to suggest that men are buying more clothing than women (see here and here).
In 2015, the Australian Bureau of Statistics published a study which showed that men buy clothes more than women overall.
A 2015 study by the Australian Academy of Medical and Dental Sciences also found a trend of men buying more clothes than women over time.
According to a survey of over 1,500 Australians conducted by research firm Lend Lease in September 2015, men spend an average of $5.65 per week on clothing, while women spend an extra $1 on clothing.
