The concept of a Real Man is a tough one. In some cultures, you must cry a lot in public to prove that you have nothing to fear and your masculinity is unquestionable.While in some others, you must be prepared to get kissed on the cheek or even on the mouth by some random dude, who’s just happened to be a fan of the football team that you like.
The ideas vary, but there’s one thing that connects every true male on this planet. Real men are not afraid of flowers. More to that, real men challenge flowers to a fight.
They say: “Hey flowers! Yeah, you! Come over here. We’re gonna have a photo shoot together, just you and me. ‘Cos I’m not afraid of you. And to prove that, I’m even gonna put some floral patterns on as well. You ain’t scaring me. ‘Cos I’m a real man. You hear me? You stupid flowers! I am a Real Man, that’s who I am!.. Now, how does my hair look?”
Push your sleeves up, gentlemen, if your blazer is casual enough for that.
A vintage stick pin brooch is not only a great lapel accessory, but also the most elegant way to defend yourself in a brutal street fight.
The easiest way to feel like a Spanish peasant on the turn of the nineteenth century is to wear these rather ugly, but very comfortable summer shoes called espadrilles. Hola, caballeros!
A light cotton knit and a plain silk pocket square are the perfect match for a floral scarf. With this simple combo you’d be able to balance up the whole look.
A woven belt is a good choice for your summer outfit, because it looks very natural and, beg your pardon, eco-friendly. The pleats on your cotton trousers give additional comfort and also a pinch of retro-authenticity.
The only thing a Real Man needs to be cautious about while wearing floral patterns is bees. I got stung twice while wearing this damn scarf! But hey, consider it an initiation.
