Italian Men - Not really......hmmm umm, attractive

Now, this posting is not about dissing Italian men, far from it, as my husband is Italian (but thank God, not the traditional kind). I look at it more like, trying to get them to 'wake-up and smell the coffee' and understand that these things that they do are sooooooooo uncool. There is a disturbing trend....although, I've seen it around for a while's a feminization of men here. Now, don't get me wrong. I like the idea of a Metrosexual, but not where it crosses the line into my world of what I know to be "feminine."   

Tight jeans/Skinny jeans/tight (narrow-width) pants - the kind that women wear - soooooo NOT attractive. We women can wear tight or skinny jeans because we don't have 'the package' that men have. But, from what I gather, the men want to show their 'package'.....It's like women who reveal their boobs in low-cut outfits and their boobs are literally hanging out of their tops or dresses. Whatever happened to the old days of leaving it up to the imagination?

Plucked eyebrows - I don't mind getting rid of a monobrow or a bushy bear brow, or tweaking it just a bit, so a person doesn't look like a hairy monster, but come on....... what is with the completely over groomed look that only belongs on a mannequin or a male supermodel.

Woman's hair piece/hair band in a man's hair - Uummmmm, you are straight, right??!  I believe this trend may have started on the Italian runways and then the Italian football (soccer) players adopted this trend. I tried searching for photos on the Internet, but I can't find any. In an idea world, I can just stop these guys and ask them, if I can take their photos to post on my blog....but, if it was an ideal world, they wouldn't be wearing it in the first place and I wouldn't be writing about it.

Shiny sneakers? - Why?? They even look bad on women.  

Unfortunately, I can't post pictures of real people that I know or have seen, because they might find it offensive and harass me about I leave it to you and your imagination.

What male trend have you noticed that is a bit scary?


  1. You are my hero! I've seen the teeth headbands on some boys around Boston...whaaa?

  2. You're hilarious!

    That headband trend for men started in japan! They are slightly obsessed with their tresses, and even get perms sometimes!

  3. hi reese! omg yes, you can definitely post about Lark on your blog! :D sorry i responded so late~ and i know what you mean about men in skinny jeans!

  4. Thanks everyone for letting me know that at least it's not just Italian men wearing these trends....I feel a tad bit better now - I think.
