written extensively on the topic of metrosexuals
and it does not surprise me that there are so many
misconceptions about metrosexuals among both women and
men. Which is perfectly understandable because the
trend of being a metrosexual is having a revival after
almost 60 years.
that not too long ago all men were what we call as
metrosexuals today. Being a real man who could pick up a
shoot a couple of deer or go
fight the second world
war did not mean that these men were shabby or sloppy
otherwise. Just look at some of the magazines, movies,
and paintings from that era. Like the ladies, men were
always immaculate down to the last hair on their head.
So the question
being asked by a lot of metrosexuals who are otherwise tough
but also take good care of themselves is Why can't a man be both a metrosexual and a tough guy?
Here is what an ex-soldier in the US Army says, "I have always taken very good care
of how I look. Always giving myself the "spa treatments"
I always had an interest in fashion, more than sports and
cars. The girls in high school loved to take me shopping and I loved doing it since I have an eye for what looks
sexy or cute on women and on myself. I actually thought I might be
gay and acted on that feeling
some times. But in the end it is a woman that I love everything about.
OK, but here's the kicker:
I'm an ex-soldier, a very good one at that, and now I work for a security firm. I work with guns and its my job to
intimidate people. I'm very good at what I do. So let's face it; like the gangsters of the 1930s, you can dress super-nice and get your
manicure, and still be a tough guy."
agree. In fact the definition of who a real man is is
already undergoing very rapid change in America. Many
other countries in the world already do not make a big deal
about good-looking men who take care of their bodies. The
tough-looking, totally macho men from Italy and most of Latin
America take enormous care of how they look. Men in many
parts of Asia, for instance, Japan, Hong Kong, and India would
not even poke their head out the window without grooming
themselves. (Related article: Metrosexual

Yes, tough men
can get spa treatments and use
perfumes without ever being in
doubt of who they always are - perfectly straight men.
And during my long discussions with dozens of metrosexual men
and the women in their lives, they wear attractive clothes
along with what some might call "feminine
lingerie". In many cultures men have used flower
patterns on their clothing and lace collars and cuffs have
always been part of American man's wardrobe. If some men
are now starting to use lace and pretty prints on their brief/thong underwear (after all prints have always been big
on boxers, supposedly worn by macho men), then they are not
doing anything really new.
