  1. EDIT: The sale is probably over by now. If I knew how to delete the topic I would.
  2. Thanks! I'm convinced my dog thinks I'm crazy. When I get a new pair of shoes I do a lot of walking around the house to try them out and he just follows me around stairs at me with this blank look on his face like "what the heck are you doing?" He's a good boy though.
  3. Thank you! I've seen some of your pictures and really admire your style. You're bold and classy with how you dress and you look absolutely stunning. When I do go out I never make an attempt to "hide" my shoes. Really, in the end, you're only hiding them from yourself. You're fooling yourself thinking that long wide pants are hiding the type of shoes you're wearing. If one were to just look down it would be obvious what you have on your feet. With that being said, might as well wear something that compliments the shoes you are wearing. If you're going to wear high heels in public it's better to show that you're not afraid rather than trying to hide something that's very obvious. You're someone here I look up to. I hope one day I can be as bold as you. Thanks for your contributions!
  4. Thanks for your response and kind words. I still don't go out very often. It's very daunting. The handful of times I have been out nobody has said a word to me, and that's how I like it. My goal is to fit in, not stand out. Although compliments are nice I don't really like the attention.
  5. Like I've mentioned in previous posts of mine, I've always struggled with finding good casual outfits to wear my heels with. A nice pair of leather pumps have the tendency to scream "formal" or "dressy". It's not particularly challenging to dress down pumps, but I'm very particular about how I want my entire silhouette to look. I'm also very particular about wanting the majority of my clothes to come from the men's department. I've kind of made it my hobby to find stylish and casual outfits that not only look good, but also come mostly from the men's department. There's still a stigma that men's clothes are boring and that you have to venture outside the men's department to find stylish clothes that compliment your high heels. Even though I find this statement to be mostly true, you can find nice clothes if you look hard enough. Please don't misinterpret this as me thinking that men should only wear "men's clothes", that's far from the truth. I'm not comfortable in women's clothes, my body proportions don't fit into them in a way that makes me feel like the clothes actually fit me. Anyway, I hope that the pictures I've been sharing demonstrate that all hope isn't lost when it comes to men's clothes. On to today's outfit. I took four different pictures to show that each layer can have its own look, and that you can layer up or down to add complexity or simplicity. I've added the brand/title you can search on Amazon to find the exact item: The Jacket: (Chouyatou Men's Casual Long Sleeve Full Zip Jacket with Shoulder Straps) Just a generic black bomber jacket I found on amazon for around $40. It's a Chinese brand I believe, but the quality was actually really good. I think it looks stylish and it has enough thickness to keep me warm during the upcoming fall months. I also really love the lining, it adds an extra little bit of detail that can be a lot of fun. The Shirt: (NankeyStar Ripped Denim Shirt for Men Short Sleeve Button Down Plaid Shirt Slim Fit) This is just a simple plaid short sleeve button up shirt. It's made of denim. It's a little too distressed for my taste, but in the end I love the way it looks and it's cut nearly perfect for my body type. You can layer different color shirts underneath to get a little pop of color through the holes on the shoulder. I even think it would be kinda fun to find some interesting patches to sew on to add a little punk rock flair to it. It's a really simple shirt with lots of potential. The Undershirt: Not much to say about this. Just a plain black v-neck t-shirt. The brand is Gildan. I prefer a v-neck to a crew neck. Not for any reason, I just like the lines of the "V". The Jeans: (Bullhead Dillon Skinny Jeans) These jeans are probably going to be impossible to find anymore. I bought them from PacSun about 6 years ago. I just checked their website and I'm not sure they even carry them anymore. Not a big deal though since men's skinny jeans are available from nearly every major clothing brand you can think of. H&M sells some really great jeans in various levels of tightness. All the way from the "spray painted on" look of super skinny jeans to a more relaxed skinny jean, they're all easy to find. The Shoes: (Sam Edelman Hazel in Spiced Mahogany Size 11) I cannot say how much I love these shoes. They're the most comfortable pumps I have ever worn. Pumps are notorious for being uncomfortable, but I think I could probably wear these shoes for an entire day and not be limping by the end of it. There's really no point of friction where blisters will happen and the leather is extremely soft. These shoes fit perfectly right out of the box. Another thing I appreciate about Sam Edelman is that they're a mainstream designer with shoe sizes all the way up to size 14 and they offer narrow and wide width shoes! This is literally the perfect pump. The only gripe I have is that they're going to set you back about $120. If you're in the market for a really nice pump you absolutely have to give these shoes a try. These shoes also come in a huge variety of colors and patterns. I bought mine from Zappos. For me the 3 3/4 inch heel is the perfect height. If you prefer something a little bit higher Sam Edelman also has the "Danna Pump". It's basically the same concept as the Hazel Pump but with a 4 1/4 inch heel. Looking on Zappos these only go up to a size 11. I think the Hazel Pump is the bread and butter of their shoe line though. Anyway, I'm really proud of this outfit. If you guys are enjoying these posts I'll keep experimenting with different styles and outfits and share them. My quest for casual is finally yielding some great results I think. When someone sees me in public and does a double take, as they inevitably will, I don't want them to think "oh look there's a guy in high heels!" I want them to think "Wow! I had no idea heels could look so normal on a guy!" Sorry I cropped out my face. My hair was kind of a mess...

    Men's shorts have been getting much shorter over the last several years, still no competition for women's shorts, but the thighs are finally starting to get some sunlight! haha The problem is when I shave I get these nasty red bumps that don't go away. If I shave again the bumps bleed all over the place. I've tried different lotions, soaps, shaving creams, etc. Nothing really works. I've also used veet and nair. Those work pretty well, but I don't think using those chemicals on a regular basis is very healthy, so I avoid that. I could get a wax, but the money i'd spend on that could go towards getting more shoes!!!

    I definitely don't have the confidence for public skirt wearing. Maybe it's because I don't shave my legs. I tried shaving several times, but it's just too much work and it actually puts my legs in a great deal of pain. I think it's because I have really thick leg hair. Regardless, skirts are fun but not an every day type of thing for me. I really don't wear flare jeans anymore, skinny jeans are kinda my thing right now. Like I said, skinny pants of any type cut right at the ankle with a nice pair of leather pumps just looks really really nice to me.

    I've found during my outings that no matter what type of heel i wear, or how hidden or exposed they are I still feel just as nervous. So, i just try to find an outfit that i really think I look good in and go with that. As far as clothes that come from the men's department vs clothes that come from the women's department. I find clothes that are made for male bodies tend be a lot more comfortable. If you look in the right places you can definitely find a lot of men's clothes that look more like something a female would typically wear. Especially with jeans. I used to wear women's jeans on a regular basis. I really loved the flare jeans that were popular in the early 2000s/late 90s, and they were all I would wear. These days I really dig the skinny jeans and super skinny jeans are really easy to find in the men's department. A lot of online retailers also have free returns, so you can buy multiple sizes until you find something that fits. You can also find lots of fitted tops as well, from t-shirts to button ups, they're all there with all the fun prints and styles that women enjoy too. I think stilettos and skirts are still a long way off from being able to be found in the men's department, so I still have to buy those types of things from the women's section. Not too big of a deal though if you know your size, and skirts would probably fit the same regardless of gender, just due to the nature of what a skirt is. A nice pair of skinny chinos cut right at the ankle with a smart pair of pumps and a cool looking t-shirt or button up is such a great look on both a man or a woman.
  9. nobody should feel like an outcast, so i'll rephrase what i said... Have any of you ever heard of Paul Duane? He's this really cool guy from Salt Lake City that wears heels with shorts on a regular basis. He makes the look seem so effortless and clean. I love his style. How's that?

    Thank you for your kind words! You've always been one of my biggest inspirations on this site. I always appreciate what you contribute.
  11. I don't know, I made the assumption because I am in a forum full of men who wear high heels. I figured, like me, a lot of you have searched for "men who wear high heels" on the internet. He is a very popular man who wears high heels. Sorry for being so bold to make that assumption, i'll keep my assumptions in check next time @mlroseplant. I didn't realize such an assumption would arouse your flippancy.
  12. I'm sure most of you know who Paul Duane is. He makes the heels with shorts look so effortless and clean. I love his style.

    To each their own. I've seen your pictures. You look good! Everyone has their own unique style, and nobody should feel limited to anything that doesn't bring them joy.

    Thanks for the support guys! All the clothing I wear, with the exception of the shoes, come from the men's department. You can actually find really great skinny jeans, with the look and feel of what you might find in the women's department, in a lot of men's sections. It's nice because they're actually cut for a male figure. The fit feels more...right...for lack of a better term. I've always found women's pants to feel just a little off, and women's tops don't work for me because I have kind of broad shoulders. A really good online retailer where you can find a very broad variety of clothing for each gender is asos.com I've also bought quite a bit of stuff from H & M and PacSun as well. I might try cuffing the jeans a little bit in the first picture to kind of reduce the bunching up around the ankle. It kinda looks a little more edgy I guess, but cuffing the jeans might take some of the edge off and look a little more clean. I don't know, we'll see. I've always wanted red pumps, but I'm not really into patent, or super bright colors. That's why these red pumps stood out to me. It's a very sharp color, but also muted enough to not look off the wall crazy. I'm not going for fabulous as much as I am going for natural. When I go out I don't want to be noticed. I don't want people to compliment me nor do I want them to say anything negative to me. I just want to be, to exist. I want to be left alone and seen as being just as mundane as every other pedestrian. Attention is not something I crave, I actually hate it. Being an introvert and being a man who wears high heels is such a perplexing combination to me. I wish I didn't have this desire, I wish I could just be content with my van's hi tops and a pair of cargo shorts, even though I like those things, it's only a fraction of who I am. I also like heels and I've gotta deal with that and find a way to balance the desire to go unnoticed with the desire to wear what I want. The tucked in shirt look is something I really like. I think it looks super clean and very professional. If I wore something like that to the office every day I'd probably pick up some shirt stays to help keep the shirt tucked in. As I move around the shirt slowly gets un-tucked. It would be nice to have something holding it down. I don't work in an office and I don't go to church very often so I'm going to start trying harder to find something a little bit more every-day-casual-wear-to-the grocery-store-type look. A look that's more true to who I am as an individual. I'm most definitely not that polished on a regular basis, nor do I have an interest in changing that. I think I can achieve this look. I just need to do a little more critical thinking and digging through my clothes. The top picture is definitely more "me".

    Thanks, I need to come up with some outfits to dress down the pumps. Pumps are my favorite style for sure. The outfit I am wearing with the booties would probably work with the red pumps, but I need to find something different. 99% I'm a shirt untucked kinda guy, so the formal styles are me trying something new.
