Gothic Guys

The most popular gothic male icon was Dracula, made famous through horror movies. Another popular goth icon, Robert Smith - lead singer from The Cure, will deny that he had any influence on how gothic fashion for guys started. Roberts' wild hair, pale white completion and smudged lipstick as well as his trademark black trench coat image was idolized by many goth guys.

Another huge influence was the band Bauhaus who pretty much designed the first goth look for guys through their music, clothing, art and style. Another model was Dave Vnian of The Damned who liked to dress as a vampire just for kicks. A continued icon influence is David Bowie who has always walked on the side of eerie through his on screen characters and music.

Gothic fashion for guys does not have any rules; they have little interest in popularity. Goth guys like to create their own unique style. Common goth guy looks include a fishnet shirt, vinyl or leather pants and boots.
