Tag Archives: a male fashion poet?


Finding a nearly-sixty-year-old,

Fashion poet leaves some rather cold…

A shock to see

The  elderly,

Actively trends they behold!

He sin’t always a saint,

But postive pictures he’ll paint…

Good exposure and pride

Knowing someone’s on their side,

Hoping his maleness isn’t a taint!

Again he must balance his views,

Determined to spread good news…

His challenge is to write

Poetic fashion insight,

Though alas, bias for certain styles–skews!

A fan of the button-up blouse,

It’s clean lines he’ll endorse…

Other styles

He compiles,

To show what they are, of course!

–Jonathan Caswell



Others say what comes next,

And even what a new year rejects…

I’ll have my say

If you’ll make way,

For what this Poet selects!

First–cut or ripped jeans–

Should be outdated by any means…

Cold weather–legs freeze–

Office work–not in these!

For the office there’s no in between!

This wearing short skirts with no hose,

No sense when cold wind blows…

A long warmer coat

I’d definitely vote,

In strong winds “something” shows!

Some find the sneaker appeals

Instead of loafers or high heels…

Comfortable feet

Are worth the treat,

But more formal footwear appeals!

This blogger can’t separate,

Objective comment from male trait…

I’ll behave

And yet be brave

In voicing an opinion straight!

–Jonathan Caswell


He calls himself “fashion poet”,

One or two others know it…

In pursuits

Avoiding lawsuits,

He certainly doesn’t want to blow it!

Him being man and all,

Must carefully judge his call…

With less passion

Than stereotypical fashion,

Not being the Beast at the ball.

Gender matters to him,

Especially if women…

They’re the kind

He most has in mind,

Do they mind if he tiptoes in?

–Jonathan Caswell


Salespeople say “try us”,

Is wrong to not admit a bias…

Being a male

Does entail,

Being consistent..reliant!

You’d males want everything open

(Are you feminists hoping?)…

Not necessarily

He replied airily,

Respects women–not grope them!

Shirt dresses-blouses are nice,

Easy to look on them twice…


Is special to see,

Eastern European spice!

Sweaters he likes of all kinds,

And floppy over-sized look fine…

And he prefers

To look at hers,

And not that other kind.

Slacks skirts and dresses all nice,

Except during snow and ice…


He would agree,

Precludes any poor choice or vice.

Come along and know it,

Here is a male fashion poet…

While tied to his kind

He might change your mind,

Humble enough to not crow it!

—Jonathan Caswell

(the “fashion poet”)


A fine little ditty,

For all  you fashion pretty…

You do best

When suitably dressed,

Driving us fashion bugs giddy!

A man in fashion review,

Does it help he writes poems too…

Much healthier

Watch clothiers,

Than other things more lewd.

Rejoice with me you pretties,

All I can offer are ditties…


A comment gently,

I hope that is kind and witty!
