No, you are just aesthetically based. I understand but when it is taken to extremes, it's a turnoff to me. Men are are TOO groomed are not attractive to me. I like a more hiker or rumpled look.

haha nope. Just barely a Scorpio :P

And you said it perfectly actually. I may have to use that in the future! ("Aesthetically Based"). I also agree where I could understand how it could easily be a turnoff when taken to extremes. That's why I said I was in the middle, because I definitely know some people who take it to extremes. My wife likes that I am into it *some* but she definitely isn't into the extremes either.

Are you born in Oct.? If so, then you're on the cusp of Libra, LOL.

I don't have anything against men who are cool dressers. I think John Lennon and George Harrison were cool dressers, along with Keith Richards during the '60s.

I am not into polo shirts and fancy jeans for men. And guys who wear button-down shirts, even during leisure time, remind me of Jehovah's Witnesses or Mormons.

I am married. I do not tell her anything unless she asks for my input (which she actually does fairly often). But I really like her "fashion sense" anyway so it works out well I often feel I am a strange breed being a straight man who really enjoys interior design and fashion haha.
You sound a lot like me. I have a keen fashion sense for others, and also for interior design/architecture, but strangely it does not extend much to myself. I rarely go clothes shopping and mostly wear jeans and a tee shirt. Maybe its because I"m not usually trying to impress the opposite sex (I'm very taken). I think that has a lot to do with it. Either that, or the guys that dress that way are trying to fit into a certain mold or clique of others who dress similarly or have similar interests.

I have seen those necklaces with a girl's name in cursive ('70s) and a Black boy with those eraser-head square 'fros (late '80s...I don't know if that is a fade or not).

LOL! It looked like the bottom right dude. Like a high square 'fro. From Kid and Play. This kid was like 12 so he wasn't even alive. He must have seen an old show.

Whoa, we just saw a high square fro today too! The Kid n' Play one - on a boy of probably 9 or 10.
As for the OP question, I don't like the metro look either. I'm a jeans n' tee kinda girl, and I like my men that way too. I prefer a more rugged look too.

The clothes do not make the man. It's voce versa. I can dress fashionable and be coifed, but still look like a man. I can be casual and very rumpled, but not look like a bum.
