These days the term “Lumber Sexual” being tossed around like a left hander at a music festival. But what is the criteria to be considered a “Lumber Sexual”?
Could you and I possibly be one?
I’ve seen pictures of this guy in several posts about “Lumber Sexuals” wielding a plastic axe, flannel shirt, and a well kept beard and the thought came to mind that I have most of these items myself.
I too have a yellow handled axe, a red button up flannel shirt, and a beard with a similar hair style.
Though there may be a few small differences seeing I use my axe for splitting firewood, wear flannel cause I live in rural Michigan, and the beard… well I think we all know beards are awesome!
And I own a beard products company so it kinda comes with the territory.
Tattoos, beer drinking, iPhones, and hiking trips seem to be closely tied to the “Lumber Sexual” as well.
One more common denominator is “Lumber Sexuals” tend to like heritage boots, but I don’t know if they can claim that as their own because stylish boots have been trendy for quite some time.
I for one represent Redwing boots with my 875’s.
Ryan Gosling wears the same boots.
I think I pull it off better.
I, for one, don’t know if it’s fair to be classified as a “Lumber Sexual” per se.
I think I am just a simple man that likes dark haired women and a good piece of beef jerky.
But instead of fighting the Lumber Sexual stereotype, maybe we should embrace it and thank our lucky stars that men’s fashion is moving away from skinny jeans, highlights, bright green slacks, and deck shoes and into a more loose fitting look of a real man. My style is finally IN style.
I don’t feel I am a Lumber Sexual, maybe because I really use my axe for it’s intended purpose… but to onlookers I very well might come off as one. At the end of the day I guess I really don’t care.
Because I’m keeping the flannel and the beard.
One more thing:
Be a man.
Grow a beard.
Use beard oil
Beard on brothers.
