Would you call yourself a metrosexual? Or are you a man’s man?
A metrosexual is a guy that takes a lot of care over his appearance
He might use moisturisers and skin care products, straighten his hair, go for beauty treatments – or he may choose the smartest cuts of clothes or take extra-special care that his shoes are sparkling clean.
Whilst this may sound a little strange to the most masculine of men, in recent years, sales of men’s grooming products have gone through the roof year after year and the figures are still growing.
More men than ever before are taking extra care over their appearance So what do you think about the trend?
A man who is metrosexual may once have been generalised as “feminine” – but this couldn’t be further from the truth. George Clooney, Brad Pitt and David Beckham have all been classed as metrosexuals by the press, but they are anything but feminine and are drooled over by thousands of women.
Being a metrosexual does not just mean that a man uses skin care products or takes part in beauty regimes
It can more often be a term used to refer to a man that dresses well, in sharp, tailored clothes with a good, tailored cut, or a man that likes to wear smart-casual clothes such as smart jeans, a shirt and shined shoes on his downtime, rather than slouchy jeans and a tee. A metrosexual man may also like to make sure that his briefs are looking in ship shape condition, so he might choose to wear figure-hugging briefs or boxer shorts rather than baggy shorts.
If you want to try out a little metrosexual style, you might want to first take a look at Damart for their men’s underwear
They do a great range of snug boxers and briefs that will be the perfect underwear to pair under smart-casual and tailored clothes. To finish the look, top your new briefs with some belted jeans or chinos, a crisp, well-cut shirt, some good leather shoes and a slick of hair gel.
Of course, this blog post is a little tongue in cheek, but if you want to change up your style and you fancy dressing a little smarter (or more casual!), remember that you should always start off with good underwear!
The better fitting your underwear, the better fitting your clothes
Especially if you’re wearing a particularly tailored or snug fitting pair of jeans or trousers. If you opt for a snug fit of underwear,( try Damart UK for a great range) you can also give your package a little bit of a boost – which will definitely put paid to any “feminine” connotations of the word “metrosexual”!
