Well this sure is an interesting topic..and an interesting forum to boot.I've been lurking for awhile and thought I would sign up and say G'Day.

Anyway, I'm another street heelin' guy and have been wearing heeled boots "as a guy" for eons and believe if the clothing and footwear are co-ordinated, the heeled look can be quite acceptable and when dressed-up, be absolutely stunning.


Like Xaphod, I have posted a photo of myself first up, just to give y'all another view of a heeled man.

This is typical of my casual winter dress....4'' heeled boots,mid-rise boot cuts,designer belt, skivvy and a Turkish cotton shirt ....and perhaps a jacket.It's an uncluttered week-end look that suits my body shape and my personality

IMO guys wearing high heels do not look good... unless they're sturdy

You're right, I agree completely. A large heavy-set woman wearing 5" stiletto's is not a look that's very becoming and I feel the same yard stick applies to a guy.

If I weighed in at 150 kg, I wouldn't wear high thin heels either.

This is one of me in Brussels a couple of years ago.

OK, the pic was more focussed on the Art Nouveau architecture of Victor Horta, but you can just about make out the 5" courts I was wearing.

Actually, the building above, 48 Rue Defacqz, is not by Horta, but a contemporary, Hankar.

I think that womenclothing, such as skirts and heels could look real good on men, if you just would adjust them to the male bodyshape, and learn look pass the whole thing about heels and skirts being for women only.
a bit more masculine-shaped heel i think could look hot on a man accually.

As we are throwing up pics of guys in heels, here's another...I'm wearing 4" snipped point ankle boots with mid rise boot-cuts.




Here's a better view of the boots and how I like the fall of the hem on jeans when worn with heels.....

hi, Ajott,

Yes, the long coat and hat is my favourite style for Winter.

I don't know if you are thinking of coming to the hhplace meeting in Amsterdam (that's when we finally arrange it), but you would be very welcome.

Xa



PS .... I've sent you a PM (I hope )
