Flannel shirts are fine with jeans in the winter . As long as the guy looks clean and well kept I'm okay . Guys never ,ever wear white shoes unless they are sneakers and if you have a pastel jacket give it to Goodwill pronto ! My SO had a shirt sooo bad I sold it on ebay as the ugliest shirt in the world . It did not catch on like some of the other weird things on ebay but it got some funny comments .

I volunteer at the police department...all those guys in uniform... When the bicycle cops come in I almost have to slap myself.

Quick, somebody throw some cold water on me!

Sometimes they give public demonstrations of bicycling skills.

Biking is sexy. I lost 15 pounds since I started serious riding (and I wasn't really overweight). DW lost 25 pounds. Now our belts are loose. Sort of fit that gym reference a ways back or did that just refer to tight shirts?

When a man has been doing serious weight lifting, he either has to get custom made shirts and pants, or he has to buy them larger size to accommodate shoulders and butt.

I prefer my wood-chopping men to be shirtless.

Yes, we notice a guy's clothes. But I think being well-put together is more important than the cut or quality of the clothing. Just as with women, knowing what works on your body, what makes you comfortable, what suits your lifestyle is more important. I grew up in lumberjack country and the real lumberjacks aren't usually as sexy as the Brawny man. Bigger guts really mess up the lines of plaid jackets.

I'm not a big fan of jewelry on a guy, but earrings (in moderation) are cool and a wedding ring is always hot.

I'll agree with you there -- men doing housework (especially the drudgery bits -- vacuuming, washing windows, scrubbing tubs, etc) skyrocket in their sexiness.

Ladies, anyone seen the book "Porn for Women" by the Cambridge Women's Pornography Cooperative? It's full of attractive guys doing fabulous things like cooking dinner. I've flipped through it at our bookstore -- hilarious!

Amazon.com: Porn for Women: Cambridge Women's Pornography Cooperative, Susan Anderson: Books

No jewelry other than a MANLY ring and a watch. No going shirtless. No pastels. Love the five o'clock shadow as long as I don't have to make out with it. Jeans and a plaid flannel shirt oh yeah baby!

Good thing I've never posted the picture of me vacuuming the living room with Gabe in a little baby bjorn carrier hanging off my chest, wedding ring clearly visible.

I'd have to bar all the doors.

I prefer clean-shaven guys with tasteful clothing. Not really into suits because they are a little intimidating. Of course it depends on the occasion. Just jeans and a neutral shirt work. Not a fan of plaid here.

Also not into jewelry on a man. One necklace is OK but none is better. Earrings make me think the person is trying to be different. Depending on the personality, it can be a good or bad signal.

Suits? Well, I have some, but have only worn them a half-dozen times since I retired.

And those who earned the CFCE (certified computer forensic examiner) were awarded ceremonial pocket protectors.
EEEEKKKKKK - pocket protectors!!!!!
those were standard issue for engineers. TG i was a lady engineer and had no shirt pocket, or else i would have been given one too.
um...what is a CFCE?
