Vive la Diffe'rence
French phrase for "long live the difference", usually used to convey the differences between the male and female sexes. It has long since been proven that men and women differ in more ways than just physically.
While most men are visually stimulated by the female form many women don't experience the same reaction when eying the male of species unclothed. Granted the occasional glimpse of a muscular torso, with a six pack, may make us stop for a second glance, but overall we're not as affected as our male counterparts. Bottom line the fully or partially clad male is more appealing to a woman than "al naturale".
Cargo Pants, In All Their Hideous Glory
With That Being Said . .
During my adulthood I could give a rat's backside about men's fashion. Never taking notice unless it's some idiotic fad like the hideous grunge look. Or those horrid cargo quarter length pants that males seem to favor of late. Being my usual dollar late . . I've recently become aware of the Retrosexual look for men, and I'm loving it!
Retrosexual: According to urban Dictionary.com: a guy who actually likes women instead of wanting to act like them. he uses no hair care products except for white rain shampoo, has several flannel shirts, and owns at least one pair of work boots.

Retrosexual Fashion Statement
The look is very "barbered", clean shaven or manicured facial hair. Updated retro look back at your fathers clothes of the 60s and 70s. Made a short entrance in the 90's only to come back fast forwarded into 2010, propelled by the guys of Mad Men .
The look is eye catching, dressy, but not over stated or under done.
Note to self: noticing the lack of socks in retro ensemble . . . hating it, shades of Miami Vice!!

You Never Get a Second Chance to Make a First Impression
Clothes make the man. Naked people have little or no influence on society. Mark Twain
There's talk that the Retrosexual Fashion may have been spurred on by the current economic downturn. Jobs are harder to secure, and it's in ones best interest to exude a good impression during an interview. Also when you look your best you feel more confident, which should heighten self esteem.
Gone are the days when one could saddle up to a job interview, church or court date in cargo shorts, tee shirt or jeans looking unkempt and slovenly. Granted all may not have the finances to dress to the nines for these occasions, but at least one should appear clean and neat.
