Robert Downey Jr., Will Smith. Doctor Who. The Joker... What do all of these people have in common???
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.

Gary Oldman

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

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.


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),
Romeo is Bleeding



  1. A to the men. Although I don't personally find him attractive, Gary Oldman has my heart for taking bizarre roles and always looking together...even when he's acting insane. :)

    (Also, I have one male friend out here who loves to dress up for Cons. I'm helping him work on a Sandman "Dream" outfit right now..his second, actually...he also created, writes, and produces a radio play in the film noir style)

  2. Beth, I so agree! Even in Fifth Element, is was so high-fashion and sci-fi, but that was bad-ass costuming! LOL Boy, his Vlad is iconic at this point. Actually have to give it up to the designers for that film, they made everything Oldman and Winona Ryder did iconic. Her dresses...oh my face...

    Ooo, what's the Sandman outfit??(Is it the Neil Gaiman Sandman, cause I don't do Neil, so I'm outta the loop!)
