Grooming standards are interesting.
Back in the 60's, 70's, and early 80's, no straight guy would be caught dead shaving any part of his body other than his face. Folks smoked Marlboro Lights, wore polyester, and so on. Now, the "metrosexual" is everywhere, partly because of marketing, and partly because standards change.
Someone will have to explain to me how exposing your underwear, and having your pants hanging half-way down your ass is in any way attractive. Perhaps, I'm just too old, but, I just don't get it. Same thing with oversized t-shirts that look like a pregnant woman is wearing them: stupid.
I, for one, like the well-groomed male. I'm not into arched eyebrows, nor swishes, nor lisps, but, a well-groomed guy makes for a nice presentation.
From my personal perspective, I like feeling "cleaner", the look, and it's cooler, too. Thankfully, situations change. I remember blazing the way on this. My dad would call me "charlotte" trying to get under my skin. It didn't work.
