Meet The 'Lumbersexuals': These Unkempt, Bearded Men Are Everything We've Ever Wanted

Why We're Swooning Over Lumbersexuals

Step aside metrosexuals, there's a new man getting ladies hot under the collar - he's big, he's hairy, he's everything these plucked and pruned pretty boys aren't.

This man is known as a 'lumbersexual', a term coined by GearJunkie, and he sports an "unkempt beard, nothing tight, plaid, maybe even plaid on plaid, and an appropriate level of disaffection... His backpack carries a MacBook Air, but looks like it should carry a lumberjack's axe."


But where can you find such a man? According to Gearjunkie's Tom Pusak, they tend to congregate in LA and New York, but you'd be hard-pressed not to find one in east London. *Rubs hands together*

"Whether the roots of the lumbersexual are a cultural shift toward environmentalism, rebellion against the grind of 9-5 office jobs, or simply recognition that outdoor gear is just more comfortable, functional and durable, the Lumbersexual is on the rise."

So without further ado, here are some lumbersexuals for your viewing pleasure...
