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.

Anime - Gaara of the Sand

.

Don't be mistaken! Just because it's animated, doesn't mean it's not Well-Dressed

IF you're a Naruto fan, you've followed our fav characters from the original series to the latest Naruto:Shippuden series, and you'll note all the characters have slightly updated appearances.

The very first thing I noticed about this new series, was one of my fav characters has a new look. And it is fantastic. :D I don't really know how to quite describe what Gaara is wearing in the new show, all I know is, it's 100% better than his clothes from original series. From Narutopedia! :

In Part II, battling against Deidara and during the Kage summit, he wore full-length dark trousers, with a pair of laces on each leg, respectively a few inches below the waist and the knees, a long-sleeved crimson coat with flaring hemlines on the front and the back, a grey holster vest held in place by a single strap over his left shoulder and by two buckled belts which he uses to carry his gourd. He also wears another pair of casually worn belts around his waist. He is also seen wearing Kazekage robes, and a simple black tunic-trousers suit, the latter one greatly resembling KankurĊ's suit, and worn for the memorial of Elder Chiyo. All the time, he has been seen wearing Sunagakure's standard shinobi sandals. As the Regimental Commander of the Allied Shinobi Forces, he added his village's flak jacket to his standard outfit.



Ooooo. AND! As we cosplayers like to dive right in to our favorite shows, if you were looking to play Gaara and you didn't want to or couldn't make your own costume, you might be searching online for something resembling this:





Really, I love the leather vest over the robes, I love the straps and buckles. Yup. Sometimes his outer robe is a dark red/brown color, and sometimes it's black. I've only seen part of Shippuden so I don't know if this is because of the show or just random artwork. An any case, Gaara has altogether gotten himself a new look, and I likes it.

Gary Oldman

The two smartest things Gary Oldman has ever done...

#1
Say "yes" to Luc Besson. And proceed to go in front of the camera and lose his sh*t for 110 minutes in a brilliantly bizarre and belief-defying performance in a little flick we like to call The Professional.




#2

Put this outfit on:




Whew. Hey, have I talked about how much I love this period for menswear? And silvers and grays? And top hats? And Gary Oldman?
Plus, the fact that I've seen this cosplay a lot at cons, knowing how difficult it often is to find boys who like to play dress up, says tons.







Okay, five things:
#3 Immortal Beloved, #4 Fifth Element (again saying yes to Luc Besson),
#5
Romeo is Bleeding

Yup!!!

On The Runway

I wonder if Ermenegildo Zegna has done much costuming for films. Cause he should. I love the layering here, and the colors. Wish I had closeups of these!!








Seen on the runway during India fashion week. I wouldn't have ever thought to pair that tie with that jacket. But I like it, and especially the jacket. They picked the right model for this look, too. I wish I knew who this designer was!
