‘White t-shirt effect’ does not work if it’s covered in bits of chicken jalfrezi

WHITE t-shirts do not make men 12 per cent more attractive if they have quite a lot of food stuck to them.

Researchers found that the ‘white t-shirt effect’ only applies to ‘supermen’ who can eat a meal without getting it absolutely everywhere.

Nathan Muir, from Peterborough, said: “So I was wearing my white t-shirt when I went up to this girl in the pub and she was disturbingly unimpressed. I looked down and noticed that I was also wearing some rice, some green chilli and a few surprisingly large pieces of chicken.

“I started to pick the bits off and eat them, but that seemed to make things worse.”
