I want to know what "man smell" is, and why it's followed by "that's not a bad thing!"?

Stubble, not a full blown beard, just a day or so of not shaving. Hair that looks like its about a week past getting a haircut, or bed head. Ripped up jeans

how to know if you are not rugged/sexy

you have ever had a manicure/facial
your hands are soft
you are prettier than the women
you use skin care products
you eat everything lo-fat or fat free
you've ever wondered if a pair of jeans made your butt look fat
you have had your hair 'styled', colored, permed or highlighted

and to go the other way

your beer belly looks like your 7 mos pregnant
you havent showered this week
you disrespect women
fart, clear a room and think its the funniest thing EVER!

(there is more, just a start)

My first thought when I saw this thread was Sawyer from Lost. But now I realize that perhaps the OP is referring to men who aren't traditionally handsome but somehow give off some sort of sex appeal from a ruggedness about them.

But any man can be "rugged sexy". It is when they have the typical five o clock shadow, dressed very casually, the total opposite of say the boys from high school musical .

A guy who is attractive but not "pretty" at all. Very masculine, obviously.
For instance, Johnny Depp can not shave, have stringy hair, and be in ripped jeans & a t-shirt and still not be "rugged" because his face is too pretty (and I mean that in a good way...those cheekbones, those eyes :sigh: ).

A man smell is musky, not funky. When he's just come from doing something really physical and he just smells like musk and sweat. *deep sigh*

I dated an English girl once who called me "her bit of the rough". I had always taken my "look" for granted till I met her. Beat up old grey cowboy hat (still have that hat) that looks like it was in the Civl War, beat up Wranglers, (Levi's sometimes) button down shirt with rolled up sleeves, lace up style riding boots (horseback not motorcycle), my hair doesn't behave without a hat and I never seem to get to a barber regular like. Lol she told me that English guys had "rough" looks too, just not the cowboy thing. She told me if I showed up in an English pub looking like I do I might not get out alive. I miss her, she went back to the UK.

Rugged sexy to me is a guy with side burns or a beard, usually tall and somewhat built, wears wranglers or slimmer jeans, wears dark colors like blues, brown, green, black, gray, and camouflage, and he can have short buzzed hair or shaggy longer hair, he must have pit hair and the more he has the more rugged sexy he is .... wears tank tops and sleeveless shirts, his face and eyes can be pretty .... it is more about the entire overall look .....
