  1. What is a lumbersexual?

The term  lumbersexual  has become fashionable from certain aesthetic tendencies of men’s fashion, characterized by a certain air of carelessness regarding appearance, with long beards, usually scruffy shirts usually plaid, jeans, rustic boots, in short , items that refer to a slightly rough, country masculinity, summarized in the ideal similarity with an American lumberjack (hence the term lumbersexual: derived from  lumberjack , “lumberjack” in English).

In general, lumbersexuals are considered as a response to metrosexual aesthetics , very much in vogue during previous years, and according to which man had to give his appearance enough efforts and attention to look neat, shaved, combined and in some cases makeup, features that are traditionally associated with the female spectrum of social and fashion roles.

Thus, the lumbersexuales would become a staging of a certain traditional idea of ​​the masculine : virility linked with strength, with physical effort, with the natural appearance and carefree of fashion. This last one constitutes a paradox , being precisely the lumbersexuales a masculine aesthetic fashion for which not few attachments, clothes and accessories are offered in the market, and to which no little attention is dedicated.

There is not really a sexual or erotic determination of lumbersexuals, although their appearance suggests protective, paternal, aggressive, self-confident roles. They are supposed to love nature , although it is an eminently urban fashion . Men who adhere to this fashion can also belong to any sexual orientation. It is not really about a sexual gender, but a fashion aesthetic.
