I have used this a couple times recently so I should post it here.

There is a new name for smart fashionable straight men in cities - Metrosexuals come out.

Getting pedicures and participating in other traditionally female rituals is a matter of pride for the style-conscious straight urban men known as metrosexuals.

Mr. Martinson likes wine bars and enjoys shopping with his gal pals, who have come to trust his eye for color, his knack for seeing when a bag clashes with an outfit, and his understanding of why some women have 47 pairs of black shoes. ("Because they can!" he said.) He said his guy friends have long thought his consumer and grooming habits a little . . . different. But Mr. Martinson, who lives in Manhattan and works in finance, said he's not that different.

"From a personal perspective there was never any doubt what my sexual orientation was," he said. "I'm straight as an arrow."
