The Ultimate Guide to Metrosexual Underwear

Metrosexuals, listen up!

You may think you know everything about everything grooming-wise, but apparently you do not.

Sure, you may go around looking all nice and pretty, and have a way with the ladies at the bar — but maybe you don’t know all the details of what women REALLY look for when you take your pants off.

Yes, men – women do care about your underwear.  They may not like to admit it, but just like the old saying, “clothes make the man,” so goes the other saying, “cartoon animal underpants are a big turn off”.


How many bras does the average woman own?

Pop quiz: How many bras does the average woman own?

An even better question is how many women own bras that they’ve never even worn?

With women lamenting the high cost of bras (well, good ones, at least), one would think that women would be more careful about ensuring that their underwear money… excuse us, lingerie money… goes to good use.

The answer comes from an online retailer who surveyed women about their bra-buying and wearing habits.

Angela Newman is a woman on a mission.

Much like the heralded Sara Blakely who created Spanx because she was looking for underwear and nylons that served a specific purpose (footless pantyhose, and super-supportive Spandex), Angela had an underwear problem that she wanted to solve.

10 Things How To

What to wear to a job interview (and some things not to wear)

Not everyone knows what to wear to a job interview.

Yeah, the traditional suit should still work, but in today’s wacky world of “business casual” or “jeans Fridays”, the potential job seeker sometimes chooses the wrong outfits to appear at the potential future office with.

The good interviewer will share what the usual “around the office” dress code is, but that doesn’t mean that the applicant should show up in the same type of clothes in order to fit in. You don’t have the job yet, Bucko, so leave the flip-flops at home.  Flip-flops don’t belong in the office anyway.

So what should the applicant wear?  Well, you can never go wrong with a suit — unless you know ahead of time that the office is a bit more casual, in which case go with some nice slacks and dress shirt (but lose the tie).


Men – would you wear a “Male Corset”?

Men, you like the corsets, don’t you?

Of course you do. You find them sexy on pretty much any woman who goes through the effort of putting on one for you.

But would you feel the same if the tables were turned, and YOU were the one to wear a Male Corset?  Well, it could happen — Asda in the UK is now selling a male corsetOf course, Asda doesn’t go as far as to call it a corset — that wouldn’t do well for sales, would it?

How to be a Man
How to be a Man: A Guide to Style and Behavior for the Modern Gentleman

If you have read DETAILS or GQ magazines over the past few years, you’ve probably seen the Style column written by Glenn O’Brien.

You may mock the recommendation for this book or others like it that have variations of “for the Modern Man” in the title, but you’ll find that if you pick them up and give them a quick glance, you’ll find at least a dozen helpful hints and suggestions hidden among all the things that you may feel don’t apply to you.

In other words, go out and get it.  And frankly, any of these books make great gifts to your favorite nephew or younger cousin just about to enter high school or college.  Might even get them set into the right direction as they’re about to head off into adulthood.
