Male characteristics are supposed to be strength, bravery and seriousness. However, the way men look is important as well.

The first impression of a person starts from the first look.

What do people find interesting when they meet someone for the first time?

Some people judge and value others by their appearance. So the way we look is significant in society.

Toun Rithy, who is 23 years old and works at Elite Golf Club, says that “it is usual for people to care about their appearance”.

He spends a lot of money on his clothes, shoes and other accessories.

He doesn’t, however, spend a lot of time shopping because he is usually busy working. Also, he doesn’t like shopping.

He goes shopping once or twice a month. He might buy new clothes, a watch and sunglasses.

If there is a party, he might go shopping just for that. He spends about $100 to $120 a month.

He says that, as a man, he doesn’t pay attention to cosmetic products like facial foam or scrubs.

He thinks that men can be handsome without these things.

“Men can be handsome when they have a good job, are knowledgeable and have money,” he says.
