"Lack of style" doesn't make me shudder. I don't find it "annoying" either. At all. It usually shows me that a person isn't very image-conscious, which has a good connotation in my book. =) However, I don't think that many gents understand the effect that style has upon womenfolk, and enlightenment in this direction was my goal with this post.
I'd never think it wrong to reject an extra edge of attractiveness... but it isn't wrong to want it, either.
