    This came as a big surprise to me, but I think I am officially metro. How does one know the warning signs of being metro?

    So here are my warning signs:

    I have more interest in a coffee machine (high end Euro machine) than the wife. I bought it without asking her.

    This week, I saw a very nice set of silverware. It was made by a German (matches my knives) cutlery maker. What do I do. I have the sales lady (not hot and way too old) tell me all about the set and show me how it looks with a full service setting. Next thing I know, I bought a silverware set. It looks really nice.

    But I think I may have officially crossed the line to metro.....

    Nothing wrong with metro. I'm metro as hell but still 100% man.

    Do you use hair gel? If so, you have completed your transformation. Oh and get yourself a Passat.

    Wait...you have more interest in a coffee machine than your wife does, or you have more interest in the coffee machine than you do in your wife. If it's the latter, I think you've moved well beyond metro, to a different kind of -sexual :whistling:.

    In all honesty, I wouldn't mind having a nice coffee machine, or a set of nice German cutlery.

    Look... some men won't even glance at which shirt they grab out of the closet in the morning, but those same guys will throw a FIT if one brand's FDE furniture doesn't match that of another company's.

    Considering how much effort many of us put into making our gear match or look "just so", I'd say yes, most of us are "metro" assuming that means taking the time to make sure we look good :supergrin:

    Now as for me personally, most people would probably label me either metro or hipster if they saw me on the street.

    Women have supermodels, we have Travis Haley :whistling:

    What is this Metro? Is that the PC way of saying :aodnsb:

    Coffee, ok I like good coffee but...
    Women > Coffee

    Also unless you are single, the silverware selection should be done by the woman of the house. I dress nice and keep myself clean and well groomed, but silverware isn't even on my radar.

    A man concerned about silverware, especially cutlery, is fine.

    I'm waiting for them to be a little more widely used before I get one. So many uses. :cool:

    Manly types buy their knives and forks at a garage sale. (And if you refer to them as yard sales, then you could be suffering from identity ambiguity). :freak:

    What if, instead of hair gel, one uses texturizing taffy? And if he drives a truck and fixes diesels for a living?

    I'm sorely tempted as well carrying two sets of keys, knife, pens, cell, gun etc. Although I fail most metrosexual metrics.

    A compact messenger bag with a bit of a rustic look would probably suit you. Either weathered leather or some nice canvas material along with some buckles to keep it interesting.

    There's a murse out there for everyone!

    I'd definitely keep my cell, keys, knife, ipad, maybe a spare mag or two in my murse. As well as gum and some other stuff. And I wouldn't need to worry about murse-snatchers because they know I'd just 1) never release my murse and 2) kick their ass.
