The level of interest isn't girly if it's kept exclusively to SF... the moment a guy starts talking about his clothes, or becomes known among his friends or workplace for having an interest in them, is the moment masculinity (and dignity in general) just goes out the window... and he becomes immediately vulnerable to accusations of vanity. Sprezzatura is a curious thing; it reminds of Daoism in the sense that the instant you bring conscious attention to it, it is destroyed.
