Hey, guys.

Just read this article on Askmen.com, and it really got me thinking. This woman was upset that recent trends for men have been too flamboyant/hipster/girly/gay..ect.

LINK to the article: http://www.askmen.com/fashion/fashiontip_600/688_fashion-and-the-heterosexual-male.html

Is the jewelry, eccentric patterns, colored suede, skinny jeans, hipster bowties, ect off-putting to most women? If yes, then how is the typical straight guy, who is into fashion, supposed to express that interest?

What do you men think, and girls what do you think?

No! I love that men are being given more options. It's not fair for the women to monopolize fashion and style. I enjoy seeing what men put together as well.

I'm with you on the skinny jeans. I've never seen a man look good in skinny jeans. When I see a guy in skinny jeans I just think "ergh" Slim fit jeans are fine in my books but not actual skin tight jeans. It just looks wrong.

It depends on the body shape. Often a guy who has a more athletic build will get away with skinny jeans a lot better than a guy who is chubby. To blatantly dismiss any guy wearing skinny jeans a little OTT. This is just my opinion.

i find that skinny jeans and tank tops look better on slim men that women because they aren't really made for curves and fit the angular build better

I don't think so. It's the 21st century! Freedom of expression all the way
