    These chaps look like they have seen some action, I'd definitely ask them for advice about something outdoorsy. Good to see that even the rugged types still recognise the unbuttoned bottom button rule too!

    I think the dude in photo one could be better groomed, but I love the deepness of the blues he's wearing, and, though the post is called "Manly Men," the pocket square looks more like an orchid, and reminds me of Clifton Webb in "Laura": he's Zach Galifanakis crossed with Waldo Lyndecker. The guy below is PERFECT. Scorching.

    I think the gentleman in the top photo would look better without the tie and his shirt button open to elongate his neck, other wise both are very handsome. I like the very manly rugged look.

    I love me some manly men! I'm all about the lumberjack look. I especially love it when fashion men embrace their inner masculinity. I feel like so much of male fashion last decade was the ultra-skinny teenage look. Glad to see muscles are making a comeback.

    What I take from this is the pocket square position and shape. It isn't the straight edge "Mad Men", but isn't too dandy either. I like it for a pulled together yet not too business-like look.

  39. Very handsome! I'll take one of #2, please ;)

    Now that's the kind of style I'm talking about! Gritty yet refined. Elegant yet untamed. Forget those overly manicured, politically-correct pansies – These are the kind of guys that go chop some wood out back before hitting the cocktail bar, or cook dinner for their girls that they actually killed. (Or at least that is what their beards signal).

    If only I could grow a beard…

    The second gentleman does hirsute just right while the first one has to groom himself a bit more. That's my $0.02 worth. I'm an Asian female; perhaps the preference is cultural…..

    Good diversity of shots recent, Sart. But I keep wondering if the shot of those 3 women deep in conversation at Paris posted 11 March 2011 is meant to keep ardent fans like us on our toes?

    Erm. You make me think I should grow a beard so people stop confusing me with a 21 year old woman.

    I humbly think the second man looks more manly. There is something affected in the uber-manliness of the first one, perhaps?

    yes! I miss the manly man especially the burly dapper type (is this logical?), a man who isn't afraid to be a man albeit a good looking one. I am getting tired of the skinny, clean shaven, metro look and it's refreshing to see some guys who are a bit disheveled in a rough around the edges sort of way. I've got a soft spot for beards, my man sports a lovely one. and yes he's a burly man.
