Putting effort into dressing up/looking pretty is a feminine trait and that's why I'm wondering if girls think stylish guys are wimps/have low testosterone levels. Most stylish guys I know are either gay or girly. Do girls automatically assume a guy is girlie and sensitive if he's stylish? Do girls love stylish guys because they remind them of their girl friends (go shopping together)? Or do they prefer men who do manly things instead of putting effort into dressing up (caring about fashion)?
real men don't put effort into looking good. nature didn't program men to put effort into looking good. it's a woman's job to look pretty/care about her appearance. it's a man's job to protect her/care for family. creative and sensitive guys (female brain) are stylish. real men focus on more important (manly) things. nowadays many men turn into women/sissy boys (metrosexuals) - feminized and unable to protect. shameful.

Guys always worry about looking "girly", lol. I don't agree with the stereotype about gay men being stylish (I mean, some are and some aren't, just like anybody else on the planet), but here's a short guide to help you decode the rest of your question on style:
A well-groomed guy is actually really attractive. A guy who is OVERLY conscious of his appearance just comes off as being too self-involved. A guy who is shaggy indicates that he doesn't care about himself, let alone the people around him. The exception to the rules are (1) when a guy's getting out of a massive repair job, surgery, or some similar activity, where he's just naturally going to look a little shaggy around the edges; (2) when a guy dresses for a major occasion and is atypically well-groomed (weddings, etc.).
Do I want a stylish guy by my side? Of course, but style isn't just about clothing, it's about "swag" -- personality, not Armani.
Bottom line? Be a Manning, not a Brady... It's important to *look* good, but being good (inside out) is better than being stylish.1
