Men’s groups are questioning the unswerving use of chiselled, muscular male models within the fashion business.
Peter Thape from online forum dads.com believes that the drive towards plus-sized female models, whilst ignoring the balding, paunch of masculinity represents double standards. Thape suggests that the male Adonis look is unnatural and comes from years of gym work, and a host of questionable supplements.
‘The fashion industry needs to be more illustrative of regular people and use fatter, uglier men, otherwise what message does that send to society?’ Thape said.
‘Men are naturally more curvaceous, and most women prefer their men to look that way, rather than look like a handsome, lithe, firefighter carrying a puppy,’ added Thape.
