The tragedy of machismo is that a man is never quite man enough. ~ Germaine Greer
I have been given crap in the past about not being “man” enough in my blogs. I wore this to a party recently and Voshie Paine nearly jumped me and she is a fine connoisseur of men, so there :P I think it starts with this white shirt from hiwinyu Fazuku—amazingly rendered with wrinkles and a great collar (white is NOT easy to do, folks). He includes a couple scarves with the shirt, including this striped number. Now you might think shorts are not masculine, they do just fine, especially on a man who knows who he is. These tweed shorts have a great texture and a fine tailored fit. My loafers are from Rob1977 Moonites, his generous gift for Menstuff (which is coming up again soon—starting June 3—woot!).
I think I know why Voshie was hot for me. First it was this skin from Ramses Meredith, which I wear with a body hair layer. (I personally LIKE men with some hair on their bodies.) Those legs—num! And Ramses has paid attention to all details of the male body with equal exactitude.
Maybe it’s the shape. Sophia Rossen has invested a fair amount of time learning the shape of a man’s body (in making shapes, that is) and this one certainly hits all the best notes for me. He’s not too muscular, not too overdone, but he’s still manly. Rowr!
My hair is from a (kinda) new designer, Doctor Aho, who is making hair for the younger male avatars out there—lots of straight hair and shorter cuts (no long or ponytails). His place is definitely worth checking out.
