The world is changing; the whole concept of what makes a man, what constitutes manliness and what is/isn’t acceptable of the male image is undergoing perhaps its biggest transformation in recent memory. As our attitudes change so to do our clothes, the social stigma and the attitudes of those around us. The way we approach our clothes, style and general body maintenance has come a very long way, but such movement has also led to controversy. Whilst developments in this field can for the most part be considered positive, there are also a few things that divide opinion, often leading to fierce debate.
Society has moved on sufficiently enough to make it more acceptable for men to care about almost every aspect of their image. No longer is their a need to rely on the age old idea of a man’s man – the kind of fearsome male that could fight off a bear, whilst holding aloft a fair maiden and who thought shopping was the sole domain of women.
Now men can groom and style, preen and pamper to their hearts content and the world doesn’t bat an eyelid.
Caring for yourself to this level makes you the exception to the rule; a man that stands out because he cares about his image, doing everything in his power to ensure he looks as good as possible.
But just how far can we go?These shoes would suit you Betty:http://www.oki-ni.com/icat/footwear/ric ... /ro1437dus
this is such hipster posturing. another excuse for guys to dress in incredibly unfashionable (or rather old fashioned) gear just to stand out resulting in uber twattiness.
men have alway cared what they looked like. 60 years ago most men wore suits and hats. if you were a professional man thats what you wore. A generic state of affairs but a comforting one.
In the half a century thats followed the textile industry has devised bazillion new ways to create cheaper, more colourful and interesting garments.
If you're telling me that going back to some old fashioned way of dressing is the new cool because men now care about themselves I think you're out of your mind.
If you want to wear tailored clothes and pointy brogues or whatever dont tell me its because you care more about your image than I do. What that tells me is you're more susceptible to what other people think of you than I am which makes you a vacuous fashion victim.
dont believe everything you read in womens magazines.
