So, what does it mean when a guy notices your clothes? Likely reasons why a guy will notice your clothes are that he is attracted to you, he is just being nice, he is trying to make you feel better or that he just likes how it looks.

A guy might actually notice your clothes for many reasons but there are some things you can consider to help figure out the main reason.

What does it mean when a guy notices your clothes?

Below are likely reasons and what would make each of them more likely.

He is attracted to you

The reason why he noticed your clothes might be that he is attracted to you. This would be more likely if he only noticed your clothes and did not give compliments to other people as well.

If he is attracted to you, it would be likely that he would show some signs of being attracted to you such as:

  • Keeping his focus on you when multiple people are talking
  • Pointing his feet at you (people often point their feet at people that they are attracted to)
  • Adjusting his appearance when he sees you
  • Asking you the most questions when in a group with you
  • Touching you a lot
  • Looking in your direction a lot and smiling or quickly looking away when you notice
  • Holding prolonged eye contact with you
  • Talking to you with a deeper voice than he does with other people
  • Standing closer to you than he does with other people
  • Watching you and getting anxious when you are around other men
  • Getting defensive when other men are with you both

He is being nice

It could also be the case that he was trying to be nice or polite.

This would be more likely if he said it in a more formal setting, if you were dressed up more than usual or if he was meeting you for the first time or the first time in a while.

He is trying to make you feel better

He might also have commented on your clothes to try to make you feel better.

This would be more likely if you were talking to him about something that made you sad, you were showing signs of being sad or if something had just happened that could have made you feel sad.

He just liked how they looked

It might also be the case that he simply liked the way that they looked. This would be more likely if he was showing regular body language when he noticed your clothes and if he also acts a similar way with his other friends.

Consider how he reacts when he sees you

To help figure out the way he feels about you and why he said it, it would help to consider how he reacts when he sees you.

If he reacts by noticeably changing his body language, it would be more likely that he has particularly strong feelings about you.

So, if he reacts to seeing you by doing things such as:

  • Adjusting his appearance
  • Adjusting his posture
  • Facing towards you (especially with his feet)
  • Moving closer to you
  • Having more dilated pupils

Then it would make it more likely that he commented on your clothes because he is attracted to you.

Consider when and where he noticed your clothes

The timing of when he noticed your clothes could also be something to consider.

Unless it was at a party, if he noticed your clothes when you were around other people, it would make it more likely that he was being polite or doing it as a friend. He could still have been showing attraction to you so it would help to consider the body language he shows around you and how he reacts upon seeing you.

If he did it when you were both alone together, it would make it more likely that he was either trying to make you feel better or that he was showing attraction to you.

Consider how he interacts with other people

It would also help to compare the way that he interacts with you with how he interacts with other people.

If he shows the same body language with you as he does with other people, it would make it more likely that he considers you a friend.

Whereas, if he changes his body language, when he is interacting with you, then it would make it more likely that he has particularly good or bad feelings about you depending on how he changes it.

Consider multiple body language signs

When considering what his body language could be showing it would help to consider multiple signs at the same time.

This is because a single body language sign will often have a number of different possible meanings. This can make single body language signs less reliable on their own.

Whereas, if he shows multiple body language signs, that all suggest the same thing, it would make it more likely that he is showing them for that reason.

If you want to learn more about body language, a book I would recommend would be The Definitive Book of Body Language (on Amazon). It shows you how to interpret body language and understand people's true intentions.
