I have plenty of male friends who might say something like "hey, where are those shoes from?" or "nice jacket, man" to each other. I don't find this as weird or un-masculine; it seems extraordinarily insecure to do so.

Besides estimated age and race/ethnicity, I notice a woman's attractiveness and body type. (Boobies!) If she's not old, I think I usually tune into very fair skin (partly because I like it) and assess hair length, too, probably, and maybe if she's wearing glasses. Something I always notice is whether she is dressed 'cheap.' If she is not attractive to me, I'll hardly pay attention beyond those details.

Back on topic: I also, if feet are already in view, usually notice if men are wearing good dress shoes, despite little interest in doing so myself.

No men are going to follow my lead on the specifics they notice about other dudes?

Mod cut: Quoted post has been deleted.

It's probably because you are not a good looking person. You are not used to attracting others simply by your looks. So that aspect is not something you are conscious of or care about. It seems fine to me and only natural. People who are very good looking learn early in life to automate attention to that aspect, since it seems to be an effortless way to attract affection and attention from fellow human beings.

I'm gay, so obviously I notice good looking men, and really pay no attention or care about women's looks. But I've always wondered with good looking, well-dressed straight me, do they realize they're good looking and well dressed? How do they decide how to dress if they don't care about men's looks?

Although, I'm probably not the best dressed gay man out there. I'm in great physical shape, but jeans and a t-shirt is my preferred wardrobe. (Not Rustler jeans and a wife beater lol!)
