Come on, embrace your inner dandy. You know it’s what SM would want.[/quote]

haha, I’m actually a pretty feminine dude in a lot of ways but I just don’t go in for expensive clothes, perfumes etc., and I’m not particularly well groomed[/quote]

real men are well groomed and when it’s most appropriate smell very nice. I say most because I don’t expect a man to smell nice while under the hood of a car or battling a house fire.

I miss SM so much. Sigh…

define well groomed. I keep my beard trimmed (a macho 6mm, in case you were wondering) and my girlfriend is a fancy schmancy hairdresser so I suppose my hair’s probably reasonable, but if well groomed means waxing, having your eyebrows done, fake tan and all that other shit your grandad would’ve shunned then fuck that noise

Well you have a gf so I doubt you care about your grooming. Most guys including myself when I wasn’t single, could care less about their grooming habits. However once you’re looking for a potential mate, grooming is VERY important. Many girls I’ve met have mentioned it’s one of the few things that can make or break their attraction to you. Now you ask what’s well groomed? Getting tans, eyebrows waxed, chest shaved is not my definition of well groomed. Nice hair cut, hydrated hair (not dry or very greasy hair), strong aligned edges if you have facial hair, clean clothes, and of course smell nice (this doesn’t mean that the whole room should smell like you).

Yes! This is my secret weapon that doesn’t really matter because I am old and married and it cologne in a grenade, AKA the real life Sex Panther.

When I was younger, my favourite on any guy was Lagerfeld. Do they even make it anymore?

I like the smell of decent cologne on a man. Maybe someone can recommend one that has a tobacco kind of scent to it. Not like cigarettes but the smell of amphora tobacco when you open the pouch for a pipe. That’s pretty old school too but it has an awesome smell to it.
