I have been correct more than once about this observation. They are something you wouldn’t see an American guy wear unless he was going to work some where professionally, or dress for a formal event or party. I thought only women’s shoes had pointy tips like these, but I was surprised to see that British men will rock them too.
I’ve seen guys in England wearing these shoes around town while shopping, having a night out with some friends, and even at a house party. I imagine if an American man wore them, he’d feel like a clown, their dress shoes are not nearly as elongated as the styles I have seen in England.
British guys look so handsome in suits, and they really do know how to wear them well!
But in my opinion there are some subtle differences that do stand out between British guys and American guys, everything is similar but yet also different.
Most obviously their accent sets them apart from the American boys back home. Maybe it’s the movies we’ve watched growing up that portrayed princes and princesses with these accents that created this obsession, but there is something about a British accent that makes you feel like birds are singing in your ears.
In Britain they’re called “Hundreds and thousands”. She likes to point to random things in the house and tell Chris what we call it in America “We call that suitcase”.
Most of the time it’s something that shares the same name in England, but for laughs, Chris will call it something completely different to mess with her “We call that a travelling box”. At first, when we first started dating Chris thought I was an alcoholic!
But here it’s not uncommon with my family and friends, to just refer to hot apple cider as “cider”. The boys certainly do present themselves better in Britain than the American boys I’ve seen.
I wouldn’t say they are more fashionable than anyone, but I don’t see boys walking around town with their pants hanging off of their butts or wearing over sized sneakers, looking like a clown.I’ve never been a girl who desired dating a guy from outside of the US, but I wasn’t opposed to the idea of it.Christopher and I have been dating for over a year now, and I can honestly say that dating him has been very exhilarating.We will laugh at each other as we try and mimic each others accents, mostly it’s just me trying though.Chris is still far too embarrassed to really try to sound American!” It’s not a common coupling that you’ll see in my hometown.
