I agree with the others who have said that clothes must fit properly to be flattering--vintage or not. I also think a man has to be comfortable and confident in what he's wearing in order to come across as sexy. There's nothing like fidgeting with your outfit to ruin the look. While my husband wears jeans and a t-shirt with a button-down almost every day, he's comfortable in a suit. When we go to formal events and I see other guys squirming because they don't feel right dressed up, it makes me appreciate that I have a man who can carry himself well no matter what he's wearing.
But if he's comfortable and confident in vintage, that's a bonus.

My husband always wears a fedora hat ...not those trendy short brimmed fedora hats that guys seem to wear these days...but nice vintage, felt ones.
I defiantly think a man dressed in vintage clothing is extremely sexy it makes them look sharp and presentable and it has just something about it that is just very sexy hahahahaha maybe because im a vintage dame myself hahaha :P

I have always admired Ricky Ricardo and Lounge member Yeps' style. Here are some of my favorite Desi Arnaz/Ricky Ricardo clothing. http://www.google.com/m/search?tbm=i...arnaz&sa=N#i=0
http://www.google.com/m/search?tbm=i...rnaz&sa=N#i=46 I like the way he is wearing his hat in this one . With the pinch in it.
http://www.google.com/m/search?tbm=i...naz&sa=N#i=105 I like the hairstyle and plaid shirt in this one.
I could go on and on. Absolutely check out I Love Lucy episodes. He also wore jeans and tennis shoes a few times on the show also. My favorite one is were Fred and Ricky were wearing their favorite clothing and the wives did not like the guys looking so sloppy.
Om my babyjo.com they have this motorcycle cap http://mybabyjo.com/Hats_c16.htm that I just adore on a man in. Polo or button down shirt with tee shirt peeking over the top.

Those now ubiquitous, short-brimmed fedoras worn by so many average Joes these days annoy the heck out of me on the grounds that, from the corner of my eye, for a moment I think I am seeing a dapper gentleman and it turns out it's some dude in surf jams and a t-shirt.
I do! I love a man who is nicely dressed and well-groomed, and those things were definitely more "the norm" with vintage styles than in today's world. I do love a guy in a vintage suit, but I also think a guy can look great in a t-shirt & jeans so long as everything fits well and he's groomed.
I know everyone will think I'm lying, but my husband dresses up/nicely 100% of the time. He seriously even wears starched & pressed pajamas to bed. I'm not joking. He dresses very classic - typically suits, dress pants with nice shirts, wingtip shoes - and does wear some vintage or vintage-styled items.
Quite honestly, although he *always* looks put-together, I do sometimes envy those ladies whose men dress down in t-shirts & shorts. My husband would never be caught dead in a t-shirt outside the house. Heck, he won't even wear a shirt untucked, or pants without a belt! When my dad came to visit last summer he asked me why my husband was grilling hamburgers in a shirt & tie.
