I see what you're saying, but think that's exaggerated by the t-shirt/sweatshirt underneath. With a normal buttondown shirt, (+/- a casual tie), a pair of cords (or jeans, if that's your thing) and traditional men's shoes, that feminine effect would be balanced out by all the other masculine cues and become "unexpectedly soft" instead of actually "girlish", I think. It would be a delicate rather than macho look, of course, but I don't think it would look like you're wearing actual women's clothes.

His gf's closet if he is straight. His mother's if he is not.

Yes, but the guy did me a favor so I was not going to complain.

 

U mad?  Is correct

It's too feminine for my liking..

Jesus.

od forbid anything be at all feminine. All this bullshit "let's create a V silhouette with our tailored clothing so we can look like alpha male fucking monkeys when we're actually fat mid level management who spend our spare time posting on a fashion forum" has to stop.

I don't even think there's that much of an inherent subdivide between what makes a female attractive and what makes a male attractive. Sure hips and boobs, maybe even muscles...most of the ideas are the same. Just because something is long and drapey doesn't make it feminine.

I don't get why feminine clothing makes you gay.

It doesn't, but it's like politics, you have to keep up appearances. Perhaps a better analogy is the olympics, everyone has to pretend that drug usage is marginal and scandalous and that we actually care.

Personally though I think of feminine/masculine as a continuum in certain clothing and divide in others. I'm not sure I like the sweater above just becasue I don't like sweaters in general, but I can see this working for a man under several circumstances. It would also be very dependant on the guy's build`appearance obviously

Sorry man, I couldn't stop myself...

He's just ill-proportioned.

Personally I think the sweater looks cheap. Look at the hem, the material looks like it might be cotton, which doesn't make sense in a long-ish cardi like that. It looks unsubstantial.

It's a continuum that certainly exists, but is so minor as to be nearly negligible when dressing, IMO.

agreed, some hilarious comments in here

So, at risk of reigniting the argument by asking my original question again, does anyone know where I could get a menswear belted cardigan like that? I still like it...peepwall[1].gif

Another spotting of this chap on the vaporetto last week. Immaculately dressed in suit and tie in a balmy 32 degrees...

He's probably dessicated already.
The hand he extends could easily substitute or the chicken bone in Hansel and Gretel.

"It's too feminine for my liking.."

"I see something borderline feminine about it."

"His gf's closet if he is straight. His mother's if he is not."


WHOA
The current favored look in suits is feminine. Shorter cut coats, very slender cut pants, knit ties, weaker shoulders, and waist suppression so the hips are presented and the coat back rolls over the trunk junk.
All that is feminine and typically are features women's stylists give on the man's-suit-on-a-lady look.

I don't care about the current favored look in suits...

I have my own sartorial canons..

I do not pretend they are better than other sartorial canons but they're mine..

I can't pretend I like something because it is fashionable..
