Definitely not.
I just pray to God I never come across a guy with a 'grill'. :rolleyes:
A what? (Generally that refers to braces does it not? :p:)
I don't think jewellry as in gold and silver should be worn alot as it looks tacky and as if they're trying to show off.
I sometimes where some beaded/stone bracelets from Africa though. Sometimes a necklace (not wooden but a back cord one) i got from Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe which is symbolic.

Although i never draw them out or bring attention to it. I think overemphasis is so naff and kitch.

Jewellary is fine within reason but if it slates on their manliness its a big-time nono.

Yes, it does, usually. However the modern day *bling bling* braces are just a big no no.

those are evil looking! like some kind of torture mechanism...i think i'd instinctively grab the nearest heavy object (just incase)..if someone with those came closer than 10 feet from me...

those wooden ones can be quite sexy....well they have to be on someone tanned, wearing subjectively little, with a rather firm looking chest & back..and legs i spose..with sexy ruffled DARK hair, kind of sweaty, not totally clean, in the summer, in preferably an exotic country & barefoot..if possible...mmmm :rolleyes:

It depends on the style of jewlery and the type of guy.
Like piercings and **** are hot. But gold chains are not.

Earrings look good on some blokes but not others.

Well, I'm sitting here, with 5 rings on, all pretty fancy pewter ones, studded wristbands on, 1 neck chain (plain pewter chain), 1 necklace (black string with a red and pewter penticle) and a pair of custom WW2 style dog tags. I also have a large chrome chain on each side of my trousers.

Personally, I think jewelery is fine on guys, and I'm honestly not comfortable without my rings on because I wear them so much.

I don't see why men shouldn't wear jewelery if they want to. To me, it's a form of self expression, and that's always a good thing.

These are 3 of my rings. Pretty funky to me.

Oh, and for style, I'm a death metallist. http://www.myspace.com/doin_it_canadian_style - got a couple of pics of me on there, and they'll give you an idea

The only jewellery acceptable on men is a watch 1 ring (plain) and possibly a simple leather band around the wrist

I don't think many men can pull of jewellery. The odd bit is ok within reason, but I'm not really a fan.

Leather bands are only good when they have half inch spikes at least

I had some full lower arm bands with 3 inch long metal spikes, and they were sick as anything!!

Okay, most say only watches are okay, what about a watch like this: http://www.gothic.uk.com/acatalog/AW9.jpg Is that too much, or is that cool?
