an attempt to “reclaim masculinity

According to Wiki a lumbersexual or urban lumberjack is a man who has adopted style traits typical of a traditional lumberjack, namely a beard, plaid shirt, and scruffy hair, substituting otherwise clean-cut and fashionable style choices.


Denver Nicks, a U.S. journalist, and photographer described the trend as perhaps an attempt to “reclaim masculinity”. A woman could never be a lumbersexual, the female of the species, is called a slumbersexual.
