Metrosexual / GQ

This is a term that was widely used in the 1990s to refer to
men that were highly fashion conscious. It was a renaming of
the GQ (
Gentleman’s Quarterly magazine) look from the
1970s and 1980s and included highly styled shoes, clothes,
and hair styles.

Members of this group would often form friendships with
others sharing the same affection for style. Many upstairs
chains from department stores to specialty stores and
boutiques catered to the subculture by introducing designer-
specific specialty lines.
