Men’s fashion has forever been subjected to taboo. Particularly when it comes to men utilizing fashion to express themselves, those who dress flamboyantly or even those who refrain from dressing like neanderthals are immediately thought to be less manly.
In recent years, the concept of self-expression through fashion for men has evolved. Nowadays, men are expected to care about all aspects of their appearance, and if they don’t do a good enough job they are judged for it.
It seems that as humans we often conform to extremism in any case, thus we will always be judged no matter the circumstance. And if that truly is the case, we may as well live and dress authentically, judgment will follow regardless.
