Speaking Of The Lumbersexual…

lumbersexual_2800Yesterday’s urban male wore a slim-cut pair of pants, perhaps a button-down shirt with a narrow tie. He kept a clean shave, and generally looked tidy. His look was coined “metrosexual.” David Beckham was the poster-child for this breed of men, described as “the biggest metrosexual in Britain” in a 2002 Salon article that helped lead to the term’s popularity.david-beckham-metrosexualToday, the metrosexual is a disappearing breed being quickly replaced by men more concerned with existing in the outdoors, or the pseudo-outdoors, than meticulous grooming habits.

According to the Urban Dictionary, Lumbersexuals are men that keep finely trimmed beards, what is now commonly referred to as the beard men. This new phrase actually started in 2004 but kind of died down but was “resurrected on October 30th, 2014, when outdoor lifestyle blog GearJunkie published an article titled “The Rise of the ‘Lumbersexual’”, which highlighted several photos of models and celebrities as examples of the lumbersexual aesthetic.

Below are pictures of the lumbersexual men. Is that a look any of y’all would like to sample? Let us know your thoughts.Lumbersexual-Pictureslumbersexual-jpg

  1. Hmm.

    Some would want that model with the axe to bang enzymes out of them and chop their head off afterwards. They thirst for things like these much. But, I know one person here who would willingly roast the white man to blackness. (Much said)

  2. Hmmm…well,I do like checkered shirts, and even when I don’t mean to keep a beard,the whole thing grows like weeds! (Now,if only I had the 6-pack…)

  3. Oh Thank God! When I saw d “Lumbersexual” title, I was like “….. Men that have sex wit trees?! Haven’t we had enough punishments already? Y add a tree term to d mix biko….”. Thank God it just finely trimmed beards!
    I love a lil beard on my man, it tickles when we r doing d do nd I luvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvv dat ticklish feeling! *clasp crotch* Choi!!!!!!! But please, it shouldn’t b like Solange’s boo’s oh! Looking like boko haram tinz on my bed!

  4. I looooooove a good beard! I sport a good beard, I have to keep it trim tho because HR is always watching me with “odu-anya”, so I can’t grow it as much as I want it to be!

    However a man with an axe is terrifying to me! Like flirt with another guy and he chops off your ****

    No thankyou

  5. I don’t see any blacks. Maybe we’ve been lumbersexual for all our lives. Being gruff & tuff is in our nature. I’m thinking Uncle Pete Edochie, Uncle Wole Soyinka, Ikemba Oliver de Coque & Ikemba Emeka Ojukwu were flying the flag way before the Oyinbos found it.

  6. Oh! Oliver De Coque beards is d ish! So shiny nd silky! Wouldn’t mind calling him daddy while sitting on his laps nd running my fingers through them beards! Walahi! Man was hot!

  7. I’m one person who looks good in plaid…..for some weird reason…. plaid makes me look good.

    Fashion critics will have my head for this.
