The lumbersexual embodies the rugged, worn look of an outdoorsman, and though he might not be equipped with the know-how of outdoor survival, he certainly looks the part. The new fashion trend has got men trading in clean-shaven faces, dress shoes, and freshly pressed shirts for beards, work boots, and flannel.

Urban men and celebrities alike are catching on to the trend. Some — John Mayer, Harry Styles, and Keith Urban, for example — lean more towards the metrojack — metrosexual lumberjack — side of the trend, opting for a more polished look. Others — You Oughta Know alum Vance Joy, Justin Vernon, and current YOK artist Hozier — embrace it as their own.
