I’m sure you’ll recognize a lumbersexual when you see one in the streets. Yet, a good definition from a trusted source always makes things better. Because we wanted to quote a 100% respectable source, here’s what the Urban Dictionary says:
A Metro-sexual who has the need to hold on to some outdoor based rugged-ness, thus opting to keep a finely trimmed beard.
George Michael is a total lumbersexual.
Yeah man, so is Don Johnson.
There are different opinions about ‘lumber-sexuality’. Some people believe that the style is an earnest celebration of traditional masculinity. Others think it’s a parody of it. What's more important, most lumbersexuals can’t differentiate between these two points.
Does the phrase ‘urban lumberjack’ sound cool to you? Here’s a good way to tell if the lumbersexual style resonates with your personality. Just answer these questions:
According to Denver Nicks (a staff writer at the Time), a hardcore lumbersexual will answer “yes” to each of these questions. If that’s the case with you… well, congrats!

In fact, the lumbersexual aesthetics is popular among web designers and web developers these days:
Yep, instead of miles-long mountain trails and fast streams, these guys conquer miles of code lines and hot coffee flows. But this doesn’t prevent them from bringing the outdoor industry’s clothing into the mainstream.
Many people say that lumbersexual-ism may be a cultural shift toward environmentalism. Others call it a rebellion against the daily grind of 9-5 office jobs. For some, lumber-sexuality is a direct recognition of the fact that outdoor gear is just more comfortable, functional and durable.
In any case, lumbersexuals are rising...
