How metro is too metro? April 12, 2010

Filed under: Opinions — pennypinchfashion @ 12:51 pm

According to Urban the word “metro” means: “A metro or metrosexual is a male that cares about his appearance and hygiene but is a heterosexual.”

So guys, where do you draw the line?

I have male friends who think wearing fitted jeans and a button down shirt is too metro and friends who think a button down shirt, fitted jeans and maybe even a cardigan is normal.

Ladies, do you mind straight guys who dress metro?

Are these celebs too metro?

Chic Spending out there,

    I personally would say that there is a fine line and you can’t necessarily tell if someone is metro by their outward appearance. Some guys just look well put together and have good taste, but that doesn’t make them metro. I would say a guy that cares about his appearance more than your average girl would be metro. So, if a guy knows more about fashion than the average, gets manicures and pedicures, and spends a ridiculous amount of time getting ready and looking in the mirror; but still wants to get with the ladies… this would be a metrosexual male. In conclusion, guys: there is nothing wrong with looking good and caring about your appearance, just don’t become a total chick about it!

    I would say that the line that seperates the “normal” guys from those that are metro isn’t as defined as you would think. What one person thinks is metro might not be the case for another. For example, I don’t get pedicures or manicures but I do get my eyebrows done occassionally. Do I consider myself to be metro? No, but others might. I think everyone should care about their hygiene and appearance and since that is the definition of someone who is a metrosexual maybe we should do away with the word and make up a new one for guys who don’t care about their hygienie and appearance.

    For the guys. There is a line that determines too metro and normal. Just becuase you dress nice, different, or whatever doesn’t make you “gay” or anything. There is too much of sterotypes in this world. Now I mean guys that use like 10 moisturizers and gets pedicures, and etc. I mean now that is a bit outrageous. At any rate I mean I think it is important to try and look good and take care of yourself. You will feel good and feel good about yourself. You don’t need to look ecentric sometimes simple and clean looks good too. Just be who you are. Metro is such an over used and wrong term anyway. We don’t need to label people. But please, fellow men, it’s ok to wear jeans that are fitted but not so fitted it hurts your package. That’s just wrong. And cardigans, I love them! If anything just let me be called Mr. Rodgers. And also remember you can look good without taking long at doing it.
    Anyway I could go on and on about this stuff….
