Lumbersexual

What does it mean?

A man who takes good care of his appearance and resembles a lumberjack

A Lumbersexual is basically a guy who looks a lot like a lumberjack and is considered hot. His defining features include a usually messy beard and a wardrobe full of flannel, plaid, and denim.

The lumbersexual is the total opposite of a metrosexual. He doesn’t care much about how he looks unless he belongs to the metrojack category. His primary interests include chopping wood and spending time in the wilderness.

November, also known as Movember, is the peak season to spot lumbersexuals. The term can also be used as an adjective to describe anything that has a lumberjack-like look or vibe.
