Do exactly as it says in the title!

This thread is SOLELY for the suggestion of clothing items of the masculine persuasion, and the suggestions MUST be accompanied by good clear pictures. A wall of text trying to describe the trim on a pair of pants just isn't going to work. Our guy avies don't have enough choice, so show us what you'd like to have!

Please bear in mind, this is for items for the boys to wear, but it doesn't mean that the girls will miss out, if an item is suitable for both, then both sexes will get to wear it.

A few pointers when posting pictures
  • Please try and find good, clear images that shows JUST the item you're talking about, one from a store's website for example.
  • If you want to post shots depicting whole outfits in certain styles, try and find ones where the individual items can be clearly seen.
  • If the image is HUGE, please just paste the link, not the image itself, don't be stretching my pages!
  • If you direct-link to an image's URL (in an online store for example) do be aware that the image will disappear once the store updates its ranges.
  • Feel free to post sketches too

This may sound horribly sexist (and in a way it is!) But this is mainly for the guys out there to suggest the stuff they'd like to be able to wear. Not for the girls who use girl avies to post about what they want for the male avatars.

Obviously the girls are welcome to post suggestions too, but it's the boy's opinions that we're looking for here, they're the ones who have to wear the items and they're the ones who feel let down by the lack of choices available to them.

Please don't feel this is only about "normal" clothes. It really isn't. dA links and so on for fantasy/sci-fi/gamewear are hugely welcome, guys don't want boring, sensible clothes to wear online.

Here's some Visual Kei pics...for those that have no idea.. I know a great amount of male members would love such items.
(Yes these are ALL males. Visual Kei is usually worn by men)

ALL MEN and they look awesome. The outfits have amazing details and are crazy visual..hint the name.

Other:






TRUST ME....I know like...30-40 people personally that would buy and wear ALL of these outfits...
Visual Kei is very big atm..

I think this belongs more in just the item suggestion Branny. They don't seem very masculine to me. We're not looking for items that will sell well, but will let guys be guys.

I just don't feel masculine guys will want any of those.

I like the second one you posted Bartuc O:

I think what males on here really need are good pants... Menewsha doesn't seem to have very many good ones xD; I don't really have any pictures of what I'm thinking of though. Kinsaki and Gaia have good pants (I really like Gaia's Glamrock pants) but I don't think you'd want to have those used as examples xP

This is a Male fashion though and alot of males want this fashion so I posted it Here.
Opening your mind to let in new fresh ideas is good random...

But if you just want Jeans and T's for suggestions then I'll take my leave.

I think the thing is, St Branny, is we already do items that are kind of visual kei-esque for males, and we get comments quite frequently about how we're too "costumey" and/or too "feminine" for the average guy.

So what we're looking for here is something the average guy might like to equip on his avatar.

No one's saying there's anything wrong or uncool or anything about guys who like visual kei-type stuff for their avatar, just that we already "do" that stuff already and are looking for what else a guy might like.

Very cool examples, though. I hope we can get some items like that in the future. :)

Oh really? x.x Which items are aimed for a "visual kei' fashion?

Well if your looking for average clothing you'll probably just need to stick with plain jeans/slacks and tshirts with some sort of pattern design. Str8 men are so hard to design for..

Baseball caps and whatnot...

Maybe some Menewsha designer sneakers or something.

Also how about some Steampunk Fashion?


I don't know who drew this but I found it on Photobucket, I claim no ownership to it.
I think the fashion is very simply but quite nice....Earth/metal colors are nice.

Ralph Lauren stuff would also be a good for some design ideas:

Well, people have laid claim on several of our male sets being "too costumey" - but since it's not the thread for it, I won't bother to dig them up. XD

I do loves me some steampunk, though! ( ::notes down all the people who are unsurprised:: )

My mind is very open to fresh and new ideas. Look at the majority of clothing on Mene after all. Most people wouldn't be caught dead in public with half of it on.
I'm not saying that the visual kei stuff is bad, in fact it would be nice to make.

But it isn't in any sense very masculine.
Just because many people like the style doesn't make it masculine. Especially since the rise of fashion and metrosexuality.

Well Like I said, with masculine male fashion you'll probably just need to make some designer jeans or something. Not much style there though....well....not to someone like me anyways. ^^;

They must have! Or maybe they just trust the pixelists to keep on pixeling great items and those who design items for the site to go on designing as they do!

This isn't a thread that should bring up what seems be ignored or unignored.
If you guys are going to discuss this, please make a new topic for it so we can all discuss it.

As for more male item suggestions:
Cargo Pants: http://www.tradenote.net/images/user...argo_Pants.jpg

also army attrie and sports inspired naturally leans toward masculine.

I don't think the devs ignore suggestions... I think that some suggestions that have been posted are just not very manly, and that's what we're looking for. It's not that they're ignored, they're just not what we need for males right now. *nods*

As for suggestions, I have some, from Details. :D My favorite men's magazine.

Also, sweater vests FTW! :D Ties would also be a nice addition so that they could layer under sweaters.

Sizzla, I can assure you this thread isn't entirely what Branny was addressing. xD

I like the hat in your forth example,
and the pinstripe suit in the last.
Classy.
