LSTNSound.co might not be directly related to fellows for mens content but they have rad headphones and speakers than any man or woman would love and makeuseof 🙂
66 Square Feet is written by a woman!
Thank you for a truly good laugh. As much as I appreciate your including my blog, 66 Square Feet in your list, I am not a man, but. wait for it. a WOMAN. (As even the briefest of visits to 66 Square Feet would expose).
But gravely, Dan – was it my moustache that gave me away?
Whoa. That’s funny. I read your blog attempting to get my head around whether you were still in the appt, downright missed the ‘About You’! So sorry!
This one also good website for boys, Almost covers every section mentioned in this article.
I also entirely agree with the others about Art Of Manliness, it’s an awesome website.
Good article Dan!
Should be called 21 best websites for the metrosexual rich man. Only a duo of these sites are even pleasant for the average man and they are sports related. I went to Werd and was greeted with a $10k music box. $10k? My car costs that much. How the hell can I afford a music box that expensive?
Style sites? I don’t know a single MAN that gives a rat’s bootie what stores think is fashionable. And once again the prices are for people that make more than I, or anyone I know could desire of paying. $200 for a T-shirt? That’s Ten shirts in my closet. This reminds me of reading Maxim or my wifey’s Cosmo. They think everyone is making $150k. The vast majority of Americans make less than $50k. Where’s our Kohl’s style.
DIY and Instructibles are good sites for the man who has a spare lathe or table spotted/drill laying around, ie: few of us. It is still neat to see you can make that at home, if only you had the money and time.
Enough of a rant. Get in touch with the everyday man. We are not all Fresh Yorkers or Californians. Some of us dress in khakis and a polo everyday.
Instructables has a lot of things to make using no contraptions and only using household items. even kids are putting projects there.
couldn’t have put it better myself. Totally agree with you. So many sites for today’s Lady Boy who has more money than sense!
You missed out to add “Art of Manliness” in the list. It’s an amazing site. It is worth some applause. Check that out.
And they missed porn. 😛 That’s a very first in an article recommending websites for studs I think.
LOL. Stephan, Dan missed it very likely because the list is fatter than the half of the list available on Whois database.. 😀
I 2nd it. Artofmanliness.com is the single best “Manly” website on the planet. I can never imagine such a list without Art of Manliness.
Hell yeah! And what indeed makes it the best is it covers stuff of interest to all kinds of dudes. Not just the type ranted about above
I would say that grindr is very friendly to fellows. Very, very friendly. That might actually be putting it mildly. Maybe too friendly, depending on what it is you do with your man friends.
One more article to bookmark !! Very useful set of informatin !!
Glad you liked it Arul!
