My opinions on: Men's fashion

Hello everybody!

Ahh, boys. As a teenager, I am constantly bombarded with questions about the opposite sex from family, friends and parents alike. Admittedly, I am pretty picky about guys, and good dress sense in particular is a big point for me. So, if you're curious, here's some men's fashion items that I like...

And yes, most of these pictures will be of kpop/mandopop stars, because I am obsessed. Don't judge me!

Yixing in blue checks
Jongin in graduated red checks

Checked shirts
I know I will get a lot of stick for this - what with the whole 'hipster' stigma around checked shirts, it seems as though you should get scorned for liking them...but I really like them! Especially red, I think it compliments dark hair really nicely. Plus, I don't know if it's one of those evolutionary psychological things, but I really like shoulders, and I think any type of shirt makes shoulders look really good. Well, most shoulders anyway.

White shirts
Sticking with shirts, I just love white shirts. They look really clean-cut and he has made an effort, you know? What can I say, I'm high maintenance, I like effort.

Lu Han trying to be manly

I don't actually know why I like v-necks. I suppose it's the shoulder thing again.

...yes, it's the shoulder thing. I'm sorry!

SHINee channeling their inner
Victorian Londoner 
Ok, so I'm not quite sure what to call this section, but I suppose vintage works. I like old-fashioned clothes. I'm not talking about breeches and tunics, of course, but I loved the Sherlock concept for SHINee's last comeback. Maybe it's my love of history, maybe it's growing up with detective dramas - who knows? I just like old fashioned clothes, and I am quite old fashioned myself.
(Bonus points for the waistcoats - I like waistcoats.)

Yixing and his beloved beanie
Changmin in...a floppy hat?
Again, I'm not sure why, but I like hats. I suppose it's because it looks like they've made an effort to accessorize. I don't think there's a particular type of hat that I like best, but I think the appeal of snapbacks and beanies depends on the person wearing said item - face shape and all that. Frankly, a beanie or snapback on the wrong person can make them look like a total idiot.

(Trench) Coats
This is coming back to my liking of old-fashioned things, but I just love tailored coats, especially trench coats. I think it's the shoulder thing yet again. In fact, it's not just coats; I think I just love tailored clothing!

Super Junior's slick suits

This post culminates in my extreme appreciation of suits; for me, there is nothing more attractive than a smart, well-fitting suit. It looks clean and polished, and it also makes the wearer look intelligent - and intelligence is something I like. I like everything that goes along with suits too - white shirts (as mentioned), ties, smart shoes...

So, in conclusion, it seems as though my ideal man would wear a suit with a checked shirt underneath, and a hat and trench coat to keep the cold away. That would be a strange sight...

As always, hope you enjoyed, let me know what you like your man to wear!
