Two meanings:

(a) A man who is comfortable with or embraces typical working-class dress, usually work clothes, that have changed very little over the years.

(b) A man, usually a young man, who enjoys dressing up but in the outmoded 'square' fashions of the Fifties and early Sixties.

.
(a) Tom dresses like a bear but he's not gay. In that flannel shirt, work jeans and lace-up boots, he's classically retrosexual.

(b) Jeff loves to scout out fedoras, slim ties and Ivy-League cut suits. The more he looks like Frank Sinatra in the late Fifties or a character from TV's MAD MEN in the early Sixties, he is really pushing the retrosexual button.

1. The "hip" version; The opposite of metrosexual. Basically, any typical male who dosen't have a hissy fit over their own image like a shallow twat.

2. The real version; Anyone who has got a liking and embraces classic pop culture. This can be a various formats of like from sixties television to eighties music, there is no need to limit yourself to one decade just as long you don't really feel excited with today's current trends. (Which basically is starting to whore out the eighties at the moment anyway.) Also refferred to as having a "retrocrush".

A retrosexual is a possibly, or likely even, male consumer who chooses clothes and accesories that have stood the test of time, and usually regards ironing as a waste of good book reading time. They are usually oblivious to current jargon and slang.
What have you got there John?

Why Jennifer, its my 1998 Apple Newton 2100 PDA. I bought it on eBay last week, just so I could read ebooks from Project Gutenberg more easily on the bus. You know, it has the biggest screen of any PDA, and it comes with a sled to use ordinary AA rechargeable batteries! This means those weirdly shaped batteries in your phone or Palm that won't be made in seven years time are no longer a problem. And it can read my handwriting!

Well, whatever. It sure goes well with that op shop suede jacket. And I bet you don't even know what a retrosexual is?

Mmmmh?
