Summer Trend to Avoid: Man Cleavage

Wearing it right. A look from Hugo Boss.

On any particularly warm summer day in Manhattan's Chelsea neighborhood, it's not uncommon to stumble upon a wild gay man in his natural habitat flashing his man-cleavage all over town like he's Sharon Stone . What do I mean? Let me walk you through it.

Typically, an athletic or muscular man will wear a too-tight, v-neck t-shirt that plunges to the bottom of his beefy, overly tanned and hairless pecs. This exposes the defined line down the middle of the man's chest--demanding that everyone look at his tits--and leave the rest of the shirt to cradle the nipples. In other words, it creates a man bra.

I understand that you want to show off your hard work toward looking like Thor but sporting a man bra and lacking any trace of chest hair won't promote the "super masculine look" you are probably striving for. A little androgyny can be very chic on the right body type (see photo) but if you're 6'2", built like a truck and your pecs can fill a C-cup, please avoid the deep v-neck shirt. Thank you for your understanding.
