Taking the Metrosexual Thing Too Far

Dear Metrosexual Encountered in Dun Laoghaire Today:

First, let me say that I'm writing you this letter to spare you future heartbreak. It's not that I'm jealous of your naturally blonde and curly hair. Or your flawless skin. Okay, so it's not just that I am jealous.

I am also concerned about you. I think you've taken the David Beckham "Metrosexual is the New Man" thing way too far.

It boils down to one simple fact: You can wear the pink sweater. Or you can wear the headband. But you can't wear both.

I'd say your hair is your best asset, so go with the headband. But it's your choice.

Sincerely,
Ann
Self-Appointed Common-Sense Fashion Police
Our Motto: I don't care if it's in Vogue or GQ, if it looks stupid, don't wear it.

This is why I always carry an emergency pair of hair clippers.

If his hair is his best asset, why add an accesory? Leave the hair, wear the sweater.

Well I'm SO glad I finally found the fashion police! Is there an emergency number we can get you on?
For the record, I think there's far too much pink in the world at the best of times.
Did mention I saw a 7-year old on Saturday sporting a huge diamond stud in his ear? Do we get to report his mother for that?

I understand a regular bath and clean clothes might better attract a mate. However, straight men are now plucking their eyebrows, wearing pretty gold jewelry, putting on skin moisturizers and using exfoliating cleansers. My question is, do women really want to be in competion with their men when it comes to being beautiful and having soft, smooth skin?
