What do you think about them?
I wish I had their sense of style, while keeping all of my masculinity intact. Alas, it's another thing I'll have to work hard from the ground up to fix on my own.

I think it happened because we son't live in such a blue-collar, male influenced world anymore. Technology has taken the physicality and testosterone out of work, and we aren't in positions where we're constantly d**k-sizing on the job. It's moved on to our personal lives in the way we dress, act, smell etc. It's fine. Like I said..I could, and plan to dress a little more stylishly.
I think it's possible to maintain masculinity while at the same time being a metrosexual.......
I just think it's funny when a man is more concerned about wrinkles in his shirt collars than I am!
I don't want to get to that point. I'm just a t-shirt and jeans guy now, and will forever be.
I'm alos about half color blind, so putting outfits together is not my strong suit.

Strictly going by looks...they look like pussies, duh.
It's just not my style, but I think everyone should do what they want.

In Memphis, it is illegal for a woman to drive by herself, unless a man is walking or running infront of the vehicle, waving a red flag in order to warn approaching pedestrians and motorists.
I'd never worry about a wrinkle in my shirt collar because shirts are for metrosexuals. I don't even wear one. The hair on my back and chest keep me warm in cold weather.Originally Posted by Ritzol
I guess I'd consider myself metrosexual. I love going out to get new clothes and dressing stylish. I usually look like this when I go out. Let me find a good definition first, and then decide:
"A metrosexual is a straight man who styles his hair using different products (and actually calls them "products"), loves clothes and the very act of shopping for them, and describes himself as sensitive and romantic."
I fit the bill as far as dressing goes. I style my hair, although I just call it gel. I'm definatley not a sensitive or romantic guy, though. I need to work on that.
Personally, it's awesome to dress nice and sharp, but you gotta maintain masculinity, too. I don't stress about wrinkles in my clothes, or act like life is one big soap opera. I change my oil myself and drink beer, not martinis. As long as it's not going dramatically overboard and getting sissified, I think every guy can pull off the clothing aspect.

All of the above really!!!
I wear sharp suites for work, I wear stylish clothes for social. I use hair products and moisturiser.
I wouldn't use the words romantic or sensitive but I do like to look good and feel good in what I wear, and just as guy's like chick's to look after themselve's chicks also like guy's that care about hygiene and style.
That said there is a fine line between Metro and Hetro in my opinion and it is very fine line!!!!

Im a metro as far as personal grooming/hygene but not so much with clothes, I dress decent but I dont care too much about it. I AM, however, super sensitive and romantic, as you all have seen ---->

Dontate to my favorite charity!
to me, it's not about mascultinity or the lack thereof
it's just another group of lemmings putting on whatever suit pop culture dictates they should at that time
I'm into fashion, hair highlights, going to stylists to get my haircut, etc. Caring about what you look like doesn't mean you aren't masculine.

Im with Southern Beast. It is so easy for me to go drop 120 on a shirt and 150 on some pants. Its a bad habit, I swear....but damn! LOL.... Most of the time I just dress casual, but when I go out, I dress nice.

ehh, i don't usually dress metrosexual, i used to, but then i felt stupid wearing what everyone else was wearing, so usually i wear something tending to be more "wiggerish" than your normal white person (baggy jeans down to my bottom of my ass, although i wear shorts under my pants, and zip up hoodies, that kinda thing, although in the summer, i just wear basketball shorts and tshirts)
every spring tho, for god knows what reason, i always feel like being trendy, and i go out and buy like $300 worth of new ****, that i wear for 2 months until other people catch on and then i never wear it again lol
i remember when wearing baggy jeans and sagging was in.... oh 10 years ago ?
somewhat what I eat...
boooo, Its like that commercial on spike where all the guys turned into estrogen carrying girls...then the boxing game pops up and saves us all. I think it's fine to a limit but the only time a guy is allowed to look like a dork is when their woman dresses them. If a guy wants to dress all fruity then he shouldnt be surprised when he's considered homo.
this is what I wear!

I think Metrosexuals are insecure, just doing what they have to do to survive, or I think they are homosexaualiegirlies.
A big thanks to all my friends in the USA, I am deeply grateful for your hospitality and kindness.

They try too hard, other guys can see it, and women can smell it as insecurity. WHen A guy spends more time infront of the mirror than most women there's something seriously wrong there,
Jeans and a T-shirt have served me well for 30 years, and I've never had a lack of buddies, girlfriends or respect from anyone. I like being a "man's man" for lack of a better term. Out of bed and ready to go in 2 seconds, not worring about my hair color, my eye brows, or if my shoes are in style.
I'm probably a metrosexual. I understand womens and mens fashion and I have impecable personal hygeine. That being said, I can fix a sink, toilet, work on my car, or do manual labor with no problems. I think its all about balance. Looking good and feeling good about your self while still retaining your masculinity.
I wear tight shirts and fix my hair all fancy, but that's about it.
i despise the term metrosexual - equating hetero's with fags, and why? because a male is overly concerned with his appearance? that is ridiculous. perhaps it is where i am from (n miami beach, then ft lauderdale) that leads me to believe that it is perfectly normal for guys to shave themselves, to shop and spend quite unjustifiable amounts of money on clothing and accessories (like sunglasses and such), to have a medicine cabinet filled with an array of different moisturizers, colognes, aftershaves, exfoliators, masks, etc, to go to tanning salons. it must be that - bc nearly everyone i have met at school in durham (w/ the exception of those that are from s. florida, NY, europe, s. america, some parts of cali) seems to take nearly no pride whatsoever in their appearance, and as a result look like dissheveled scumbags. i liken it to movies when "city slickers" come through nowhereville-towns, and get ridiculed for their fancy-shmancy outfits, accents, etc.
i fail to see how being a masculine male necessitates the abandonment of pride in one's appearance. that is completely asinine.
