Welcome to the site dedicated to The WDM.
Welcome to the site dedicated to The WDM.
During conversations, I'm often stopped and asked, "What is a 'WDM'??" -----> WDM = Well-Dressed Male
A term I thought up years ago, after realizing how many men don't know or care how to dress well. The scene so sparse in fact that when a nicely dressed boy was actually spotted, the sighting sparked a tiny celebration amongst us girls.
That's what this blog is about, appreciating boys in nice outfits. It's pretty simple.
My WDMs range from Modern (suits, street/casual wear) to Period costuming to Fantasy and Cosplay costuming. My only requirement is that you be male, and that I like your style, whatever it is. We applaud you all for caring about what you look like. Or appearing to care about what you look like. :D
Also expect to see hair-related posts.. I'm a fan of boys with fun/nice/interesting hair.
I use my term 'WDM' to promote a good thing, going forth through the internet with images taken from red carpet events, videos, magazines, films, shows, candids, whatever! to use those pics for good, and not evil.
Awesome for your eyeballs. You're welcome.

Blair Underwood, you are POTUS.
I've seen five episodes so far, and I have to say that I like everything you are doing. (also it was nice to see you in person at CC!) I particularly like this suit.
Love that tie....and this look!
People know I love JT, so wondered why I hadn't given him a post already. Hey, a girl's busy, you know! And there is plenty of time and plenty of JT to go around for everyone.
"But I don't like/I HATE Justin Timberlake!"
Uh-oh, guess what! Doesn't matter. Everybody just relax yourself, and look at this:
Casual wear sexy. There's some good stuff going on within the layers here.
Denim jeans with leather belt. Paired with: Top layer, great coat with fur trim. Second layer, leather vest or jacket (can't see the arms). Third layer, casual plain white tee/tank. Fourth layer, Justin Timberlake. Mmm.
Notorious sweater and sweater vest wearer....
...and nobody rocks the white like Justin. :)
Uh-oh, look who just got more awesome. Also a notorious three-piece wearer. Go on, click on that pic and get a closer look at one of the ten most stylish men...

I knew the film's costuming was going to be outstanding from the beginning, when Ken Watanabe appeared wearing this:
LOVE THIS. It's a traditional nagajuban blended with modern menswear, according to Jeffrey.
But I do love Mal, and that kick-ass dress. But this blog isn't about the girls, Mal! :)
That chick is always interfering...
I'm annoyed that I don't have great still of ALL of Ken's costumes. While there's some points where Arthur appears to try to dress down, Saito does no such thing. Man, we could eat Ken Watanabe alive.
I don't have a great still of this suit, but I have a cool behind-the-scenes shot!
I vote that we kidnap and keep Ken Watanabe here, forever and ever, so that he may make movies in which he wears obscenely beautiful clothing, and very sexily lean on things with hands in pockets!!
I need more shots of all of his stuff!!! But I'll update when I do get more. :)
That's right, Ken. You and Joseph are my favorite Inception boys.
As much raving as I have done about this movie elsewhere, I've been asked when I was going to glorify the Inception crew on the official WDM page. Hey, I was gonna! I was just waiting for things to die down a bit, so my head wouldn't explode. I have now seen Inception four times, so I think I'm ready.
"Glorify" indeed... Glory be to the costuming gods. Perfectly tailored visual bliss. Let's begin. First of all...
Why didn't nobody tell me that 3rd Rock rolls like this now?!
Yes, that's Joseph in this blog's header, a shot from the set of the movie. That suit is incredible. The tie, oh, the tie. I had a lot of pics I wanted to use for this site's header, but for now that one just does it all for me. Here, see it again! Because your eyes can never see it too much!
The movie is still in theaters in some places, (I just saw it again at the cheap seats), but it should be coming up for release on DVD/BluRay soon. Honestly, that'll be the only way I can really study what's being worn by all the characters without being distracted by how awesome the movie is. As a film person, the movie distracts me from the studying the clothing, and the clothing distracts me from the other elements of the movie, which I also love. Inception is a lot to take in! Many levels to absorb. It may not be as much of a distraction for those viewers who aren't fashion/costume-philes, though. :D
From what I can see and remember, with the exception of the opening scenes tux, Arthur wears mostly three-pieces in this, which is aaaaaawesooooooooome. I love that someone with his body type is rocking the three piece so perfectly tailored to his frame; he wears it beautifully. Such gorgeous work.
There's not a single tie in this movie that doesn't deserve recognition. You go, you f-ing awesome tie!
Now where is that sweater?....The sweater ensemble he wears in the lab and teaching scenes with Ariadne is GREAT. But I don't have a pic of that one. :o/ When the DVD hits, screen caps are a must. There are a lot of shots of costumes that I can 't find on the webs. But when I do get a nice shot of it, it will go here:
As I said on my other Inception postings elsewhere: "Who told Joseph he could raid Justin Timberlake's closet? And why did they not do this sooner??
Seriously, if you're a JT fan and you've followed him for any length of time after the Justified album, what Joseph wears in the movie will seem familiar!
Joseph will be featured on this blog for Inception, but also for his off-film shoots and editorials and stuff.
Also if I ever meet costumer Jeffrey Kurland, I will probably kiss him right on the mouth for this.
Oh yes, I see you Ken Watanabe. Don't worry, you're next...
"Just saw Inception, and while there will be a long post coming about the movie's plot, all I have to say right now is:
I want to fuck Joseph Gordon-Levitt's brains out." - Firestorm717
Ah, Firestorm, you just beat me to it. I concur. :D
I realize the url for this is typoed to death, but that's what happens when you're sleep deprived...

It's JLTuesday. Today, I'd like to appreciate Jared's hair. Grooming and cool/interesting hair are very much on my WDM menu, which is why Jared has always been a fav.
I dunno what's goin' on here, all I know is I like it. The kinda hair you wanna grab handfuls of. Also, note the scarf, that compliments the eyeballs. I appreciate Jared's experimenting with his head's hair, on the face and on the top.
See what I mean? And if you think I don't dig all of these, you'd be wrooooong....
Nice. The coat, too.
And if you liked this, you'll probably like that ---> Jared Leto

Guess what? Don't care. Hey, look at this!
Yay!! Thumbs up to their stylist for giving each one of them a different type of menswear, instead of putting them all in the same type of suit. They look great!!
My favorite Smokin' Ace, after Alicia. And he's a kick-ass music artist, too.
There's that scarf again. :) Accessorizing is good, people, don't be skeered.
Now, I don't know which label did tops with sleeves like that, so I can't say what he's wearing, but meh, I don't care. The whole thing works together, and he is causally well-dressed. *thumbs up!*
