  • One shade too bright and their delicate masculinity will shatter and their self-image will be ruined and the word will explode!!! It's really silly but I've seen men absolutely lose their minds and scream at employees when they are given a pink plastic spoon at a frozen yogurt place. If a guy is confident in himself he can wear pastels and look amazing.

  • People already sometimes assume I am gay for some inexplicable reason even though my clothes were grey but I was wearing a black/grey scarf. Imagine what would happen if I wore flamboyant colors too!

    Maybe it's just that flamboyant colors are seen as flamboyant though. Learned behavior, really. Makes it easier to blend in.

    • not all colors are flamboyant, dark reds, blues, greens, oranges are manly

  • I guess because I don't really want to think about what I have to wear. I put on whatever works and just go. That means I just stick to my one formula white shirt and dark jeans.

    • doesn't that get repetitive?

    • It does but I am a guy so I don't want to spend time thinking about what to wear. I might dress up a bit by changing to pants and a blue dress shirt if I need that business casual look or put on a tie and dress shoes for that formal look but my style is as simple as it gets.

      My colors are exceedingly simple. Dark blue jeans and light colored shirts. Then I changed to white shirts because of my work and that suits me just fine.

  • I actually wear a green polo t shirt like this one lol

    • Yeah, look at these two guys

      Both are decent looking men, one ruins it completely with his fashion sense (or lack of). The "colourful" guy in blue and white looks better than the guy in black and grey.

    • first guy looks trashy second guy looks classy, good example

  • I like different colors in jcrew, lacoste polos, vnecks

  • I never focus on fashion and wearing accessories. Just track pants, sweater and comfy shoes when being casual. If I went on a date I'd dress up for sure but not when I'm chilling with homies at the mall or going to school.

    • you should, it feels really good when you look good.

    • To each their own. I feel more comfortable wearing comfy clothes and feel great about myself at the same time. Interestingly, I get women checking me out when I dont even try to look my best.

  • People do dress up colorfully. Problem is, girls callcall us jokers for that. Better to be men in black.

  • Because dressing colourfully is associated with feminine behavior.
    Clothes are a far cry, even a watch whose strap is thin is seen as feminine.

    • @Sabretooth he's not necessarily gay just because he's better looking than most guys, i honestly think guys need to start wearing makeup too. lose the hypermasculinity in exchange for good looks lmao

    • because colors= wanting to have sex with another man? woww...

    • no not really, gay is a word we use to describe ridiculous things and looking fabulous looks good on a woman but not on a man.

    • both guys above are dressed manly and sexy and not ridiculous at all. i'm not asking for guys to wear girl clothes, just brighten up their wardrobe with some blues and reds. not neon, just dulcet tones.

  • No offense but we don't take time and the effort that girl's do we like thing's that are clean and that is clothes that kinda go together we don't fret about clothes like girls do

  • I hate it personally... I tend to wear black and white mostly or grey and brown.. in winter I always wear black clothes and black leather jacket and gloves... and in summer I wear those classic white t-shirts they use to wear under da shirt... and brown shorts...

    Only ma pajamas are colorful... but I don't give a shit since nobody's seein' me...

    • it's not expensive, just pick the dark red t shirt instead of the black one next time guys should also #dresstoimpress2k16

    • I can impress a chick in various other ways obviously...

  • I do fairly often, i like it. And women don't mind it.

    But when i wear a ton of black, even though objectively i don't look good in black, i still get more complements from women.

    Women don't like men who look pretty, they like men who look powerful.

    • you can look powerful while still wearing colors, dark red, dark green, i'm not asking for neon just some accents

    • I understand you, but continue to report - straight up black seems to be most liked by the womens. IMHO, I look much better in dark blue, suits my coloring more.

  • I do sometimes but mostly because a lot of colors are difficult to use and i wear a lot of suits which i have 20 and most of them are black dark blue light gray and one is like a light pink but just looks good in the beach

  • I know plenty of men who dress in colors. Some colors are seen as society by more feminine, such as pink and purple and I do not see too many men wear those specific colors. But, I know plenty of men that wear other colors. My favorite color on my significant other is orange. It is my favorite color in general, but it looks really great on him.

    • you're indirectly encouraging guys to wear black all day, it's a personal affront i should call the fashion police on you

    • Black is not the only colour that isn't screaming like red or blue. Also I don't care, if they wanna dress like Santa they can go ahead, I am just one individual with one opinion.

  • The ones who dont probably just like things simple or fear they will end up looking like a flower explosion

    • but it's so pleasing to the eye when clothes are nice colors

    • I like a little color but i also like it simple, but i get what u mean. I definitely like the first pic you posted but the second one.. not so much since i dont think pink is flattering on a guy.
