    I am really curious about this. Have some of you ever experienced problem attracting girls because they think you are "too metro" or "too stylish" hence not manly enough?

    I used to a few years ago and every time that happens it made me realize it's a problem if you are too stylish for the kind of girls you are attracted to.

    Of course I realize a lot of you are attracted to girls who are very into fashion themselves anyways so no problem. But I've found that I am attracted to girls who are more "natural". And it just so happens that being very stylish is not really an advantage when trying to attract certain types of women. :sad2:

    In a nut shell, yes. Fuck being metro but I feel like I could be a bit intimidating due to being so steezy. Many girls are real square and don't quite "get" me more than anything else. Oh well.

    tbh I think I'm gonna have to agree with the threadstarter. while I see what bouwnty means with the 'dont let the clothes wear you' dealio, a lot of girls see a dude in skinny jeans and you're already 'weird' before you say a word to them. then again these might be pretty shitty girls to go for but I still think theres some truth to what the TS is saying

    There's a HUGE difference between being "stylish" and "metro" in my opinion. Then again, that could come down to how I define the two. Stylish - into fashion, good taste, dresses well, etc. etc. etc. That's not a bad thing, imo.

    "Metro" - cares about shit to the point that it's a fault. For example: I dated a "metro" guys for years and I don't think I could do it again. I mean fuck, he would refuse to just get up and roll out of bed and go grab coffee or something ridiculous like that... he had to shower, get ready, and take 1023899085 hours to do so because god forbid he went out in public not dressed to the 9's. Never met a mirror he didn't like, was completely obsessed with his appearance at all times. Sure, he was into fashion, but it went wayyyyyyyyy beyond that. That's what I would consider going into the realm of "metro." When a guy gets to the point he's into it that he starts acting like a high maintenance chick.

    Yeah, but there could be an issue of semantics... people might define the two completely different than I do :dunno: So, if they do, their responses might be different. But based upon the way I define "metro" vs. "stylish" in my head... those are my thoughts :mamoru:

    Thats a good point. The sad thing is that some people who fall into the obsessive category get it so fucking wrong most of the time.

    Yeah, no matter how many magazines or internet forums some people read, and no matter how much time and effort they put into themselves, there's still a big difference as far as being ''stylish'' goes.

    Oh and as far as girls thinking you're weird and stuff, they can fuck off. Most issues like that with girls can be put down the whole insecurity thing. :mamoru:

    Unless you really do dress like a weirdo.

    its all about swagger

    some people may look metro wearing some shit, others make it steezy

    I wouldn't say being stylish or whatever has ever had a negative effect on my breezy pulling abilities. I would say the opposite rather

    I've been called a lot of things but 'too stylish' isn't one of them.

    And I'd kill myself if someone described me as 'metro.'

    the hardest part is the jeans. Im from the midwest where bootcut is king so tapered can look odd to many folks.
    nice shoes and shirt is more universal isn't it?

    :rofl::rofl::rofl: Sounds like me. Except I'm always ready to go out unless I'm just rolling out of bed because the first thing I do is get dressed and ready. I don't like looking like a schlub. It doesn't take me very long to get ready but I will not go out unless I have cleaned up.

    Its not what you wear, its how you wear it.
    Wear it with pride and confidence.

    some of my close american female friends are put off by guys whom they find to be stylish, but i haven't heard any of my german female friends saying anything like that... so maybe mark is right. i'm not really sure though

    with the friends who have expressed that they won't date guys who are "too stylish," it seems to be an issue of insecurity... they are afraid that the guy they're with will look better than them or take attention away from them, i think. also i think it makes them more self concious about how they dress.

    ALSO I must agree that there is an EXTREMELY OBVIOUS DIFFERENCE between metro and stylish, just like there is a different between a hipster and a goth.

    STYLISH: Madd stakks, good color scheme, proper layering and proportions, some light/tasteful/appropriate accessorization

    METRO: Cue typical midwestern douchebag who wears brown leather squaretoe shoes, prefaded bootcut jeans, a chunky leather belt with a bad belt buckle, a tucket in striped buttonup from express, diamond earrings, and has their hair frosted.
