Modern women regard the men of the 1950s as the most desirable of all time - and would love their 21st century counterparts to make more of an effort with their manners and appearance, a new UK survey has found.
Although 79 per cent of men surveyed felt that they behaved in a gentlemanly way towards their partners, only 52 per cent of women agreed.
Old-fashioned manners proved overwhelmingly popular among women, with 82 per cent saying they preferred old style chivalry such as holding doors or buying flowers to their modern equivalent - buying a drink.
Unlike modern males, men in the 1950's regularly held doors open for women, and had a wardrobe full of well-pressed two piece suits, the 'Daily Mail' reported.
The survey, undertaken by men's grooming brand, Scaramouche & Fandango, revealed that 61 per cent of women think that the coiffed but manly men of the 50's are a vast improvement on today's incarnation.
Along with the perfect manners of Mr 1950, modern women also revealed that they rated the sartorial skills of 50's man well above that of contemporary men.
Eight out of ten women revealed they wished their partner would make more effort with his appearance - with one in five hoping their partners would step up their hygiene regime.
Half of men polled admitted they didn't have a grooming regime.
"Our results show that today's men are a far cry from the more well-mannered and desired gentlemen of the 50s, especially as only 47 per cent of men polled revealed they have some sort of grooming regime," said Ian Linaker, co-founder of Scaramouche & Fandango.
