What do your characters look like?

Sitting in a waiting room reading a book, and I’m suddenly struck by how much page time the author devotes to describing the appearance of his female characters. It’s a striking contrast with the male ones, whose appearance and clothing is never mentioned at all. I could draw a picture of the women, (well, if I could draw) but I have no idea what the men look like.

I suppose the book isn’t holding my interest very well if I stop to write such a trivial observation, but I’m just starting the second chapter so I’ll still give it a chance.
