Armani says men should dress like men.
But maybe not like this.
Designer Peter Marino lives and works in drag-leather-costume.
Don't be an exhibitionist...
Giorgio Armani comments. This is important because? I think it aligns with Dolce and Gabanna's anti-gay marriage stance - which is perceived by gay-fascists as being anti-gay. D&G said nothing about men dressing as men - but Armani has done so and I'm sure he'll be criticized for it - if he hasn't been already.
Giorgio Armani, the 80-year-old fashion designer and billionaire, has criticised the way some gay men choose to dress.
Armani told The Sunday Times Magazine: "A homosexual man is a man 100 per cent. He does not need to dress homosexual.
"When homosexuality is exhibited to the extreme - to say: 'Ah, you know I'm homosexual,' - that has nothing to do with me. A man has to be a man."
His remarks went down pretty badly with some Twitter users. - Source
This isn't what I'd call masculine,
but I like what he had to say about manliness.
So this is important, why?
It counters gender-queer theory/ideology. It counters the inclination to wear all the trends and to be an ostentatious parody-stereo-type of gay. Don't dress gay - and don't dress like an action-hero figure either.
Know yourself. Accept your manhood. Be a man. Be proud. Support masculinity.
Then repent and live a chaste and holy life in service to others.
I'd avoid this look too.
Myself? I've always been a Polo-type guy... or maybe like Pat Sajak.
“You can't find a more decent guy than Pat, you know.”
