« Let's engage with Asia! A fairy tale by K. Rudd | Main | Sage International M1A Scout EBR »



A correction is needed I feel, in regard to the giving up on seats on public transport; a real bloke's only exposure to public transport should be Friday night taxis and trains to rugby tests (which are inaccessable by any other means); otherwise he drives or rides a motorcycle (or if wealthy or in the services, helicopter) everywhere. Public transport is for losers, public employees and chaps in need of a good dose of wrist starch. Carry on.


Add to the list:

Retrosexual Man opens doors for ladies.

These days, there is a delicious twist, it sends femmo nazis and women dressed in `power zoots' right round the bend, and young gels indoctrinated in zoos called schools are utterly confused by said good manners and courtesy to the fairer sex.


PB is also correct on, absolutely, the code of transport: cattle class is out except when dire straights impose, and the circumstances are two, as PB specifies:

`Friday night taxis and trains to rugby tests (which are inaccessable by any other means.'

I noted, approvingly, the item, Windsor Knots only, not spastic girly attempt at knotting the tie.

Might recommend for the list, on bow ties: not the strap on fixed crap, but the genuine article which a retrosexual ties correctly.

It is proper for a retro too to wear specified chaps gloves, top hat and cane, held-the cane/worn correctly, set off with a cigar in hand,lit: ignore no smoking signs in lefts, etc. -I do, and again it gives the p.c. gargoyles the shits.
One femmo nazi, in a lift, as I happily puffed a Roemo et Juliet, said,
Do you mind?
I replied, Not at all.She stamped her foot, muttered and stood closer to the door. That was a pleasant distraction to the otherwise tedious ride in a lift to the umpteenth floor for something which was a complete waste of time.


That windsor knot got me confused. I grew up somewhere in the central Eurabia (it was Europe then), and I learned to do my tie. There was only one knot, as far as I am aware, that was used, no one called it 'windsor' there. Sooo, I googled it. Yep, that is the one. Is there any other tie knot? Why would I use it and lean it? I reluctantly learned that one I know and even though I did not wear a tie for the last 15 years, I can still tie it, flawlesly, under 4 seconds.

Of course there is a plenty of knots that have nothing to do with a tie. I learned a bunch of them.


Well moos, the purpose of the Windsor knot is to create a symmetrical looking neck-tie, because with the majority of punters still utilising the half-assed version where you don't go back over the front of the knot before you come back up and under. Looks messy and one sided. Sort of like their heads after I kick it in for looking like tossers.


Pure gold CB.

Gonna have to steal it :)


*shrugs* I'm not exactly into the whole 'metrosexual' or 'retrosexual' thing. Frankly, I prefer the approach advocated in 'Real Men Don't Eat Quiche' (the Australian edition of which I own).

But frankly I do believe that taking care of my appearance and being clean and neat is an important part of being a self respecting bloke these days. Too many guys I know are fucking slobs and it pisses me off.


No-one said you had to be a slob young padawan. What I am saying is that if you take more time with your appearance than your average teenage girl, then perhaps your priorities are shall we say, skewed.


CB's point, Korgmeister, is neatly contained in the golden rule of retrosexual man.

On arising in the morning: he shits, showers and shaves, that's it.


No, I certainly don't. And considering that my haircare routine usually involves either shaving my head every day (in the hotter months) or shampooing it twice a minute, I don't think I'm in danger of being a bathroom hog.

But I consider exfoliation and moisturiser to be a vital part of my shaving routine. No fucking way am I going to accept having a face like a leather wallet by the time I'm 50. (Besides, with a body like mine, keeping my face looking nice is essential if I'm going to get anywhere with chicks)


And learn to tie knots - just a few basic ones will do. Too many subscribe to the - if you cant tie knots, tie lots school.


You can summarize by saying that real men should be well-behaved and useful. Also, I believe sunblock could be added to the daily routine without sacrificing too much in the masculinity department, but mebe that's because I'm from california.


I think that a Retrosexual should also like the smell of gasoline or at least the smell of fresh-cut lumber.


hey you guys are a bunch of drongos, fuck this retrosexual shit! its a bunch of crap. I'm a proud metro who takes care of himself and if ya wanna know somthing "mr handyman, not crying, mother hating, beer swelling dick" but chicks dig metros rather than stinky farmers who sit at the pub drink beer and do watever it is you do! learn to respect yourself and look impecable even when you go down the street. thats why god made mostiriser and product... if youve got a skin blemish makeup is the answer! ps orange-mocca-frappachinos rock! catch ya later ya slobs!


Learn to spell, you fucking half-wit. You concentrate so hard on the outside clearly at the expense of the inside.


Ok, you keep looking fine and getting the stupid shallow "chicks" that like you, and i'll keep being able to fix my own problems without crying and kicking you types asses everytime you piss me off.

I have just stumbled upon your website and I've got to
say that YOU GUYS ROCK! I am an American, living in
the midwest, and can't stand our own lefties. I love
guns, girls, and dogs. And I'm surely sick of the
bullshit media pushin' the fuckin' queer lifestyle
in my face. Someday more people will agree with you
and alot of things can be set right. 'Till then,
I'll keep loading ammunition.

Hey Angelo or Angelina whatever the fuck it was, when was the last time one of the chicks that digged u (metro potbelly babes) made you bacon and eggs for breakfast?

My mother used to milk a cow every morning so me and my three brothers grew up big and strong. my dad taught us how to trap animals when we were to young to shoot, and I respect them both my mother she was the pretty one with soft skin and stuff, and my father he built our house our farm and ran a business that’s worth millions.

Now Angelinio do have a father, because I think you are confused about your role in the grand scheme of things. do you expect someone else to build you a house or just charge u rent while u sell makeup?

And who do you suppose is going to stop somebody else, from taking ur metro potbelly babe ur plasma tv and your life away from you?

Let the girls be girls angifaggio and lay off the drugs!

P.S. If u want to sort me out for calling you names you can call me on 1800FUCKYOU (Ed: real number removed)


Great thread...
I'm probably a bit more sedate. IE: Not into guns, but love fishing.

I kid you not, 1/2 my male friends won't go camping, dont know how to hammer a nail, use some sort of product other than the essentials mentioned. Its frightening...

I think a couple of the metro's here missed the point.

A real man is not about being a smelly, alcoholic, homophobic, flea bitten red-neck. (Note: Being homosexual is NOT natural, but its not a crime)

Its a about someone who understands the REAL role of the male species that is biologically implanted. Not some wanker in a magazine, or TV show, who tells us that, because we are the most intelligent species we can change biology. We can't. And anyone who thinks that we can is kidding themselves.

These wanky trends last a decade or so, then the idiots slowly wake up, only to fall into the new wanky trend.

And I can tell you, as much as any feminist would like to try and pervert the rest of the female population, women, on the whole, like their men to be REAL men...and this includes your power hungry, corporate climbing, materialistic types...
