what does it mean to be masculine in 2020?

—jafet_thetraveler SO I SHOULD STATE from the jump that I’m the wrong person to ask about the meaning of masculinity or manhood or What It Means to Be a Man™, and not because I’m uninterested or uninformed but because I don’t think there’s any one way that any one person, least of all some random journalist in New York, can define it. It used to be a little different. In 1976, two social scientists named Deborah David and Robert Brannon set out to identify the major benchmarks of American manhood. Their findings were distilled neatly into four tips that a father could pass down to his son as easily as he might a Swiss Army knife: No Sissy Stuff, Be a Big Wheel, Be a Sturdy Oak, and Give ’Em Hell. (Their…

Q. Should I still be wearing cuff links? —JASON, Raleigh, NC A. Unlike your high school class ring, cuff links are still cool. They’re a nice way to formalize your look for a wedding or a big anniversary without going overboard. That doesn’t mean you can’t go overboard. I always recommend finding a simple steel or gold link—either works well with any formalwear. You can go more personal, but remember that there’s a fine line between knot-style cuff links because you’re really into sailing (classy) and flaming-dice cuff links because you went to Vegas once (not so much). —TED STAFFORD, MEN’S HEALTH FASHION DIRECTOR Have a question for Rich?

he survived a 31-foot fall, 108 broken bones, and eight surgeries. now he has a “warrior mind-set.”

MIKE CONNOR STATS AGE: 54 LOCATION: Clovis, California OCCUPATION: Owner of cannabis farm The Recap Longtime Men’s Health readers might recognize Mike Connor—he appeared in the magazine in September 2015, after he had moved from bed rest into a wheelchair. Connor’s fall (a work-related accident) resulted in the loss of an arm and a leg. He told us back then: “Being in a wheelchair hasn’t stopped me from training to meet all the fitness benchmarks set by my recovery team. My new motto is ‘If you can move, you can exercise.’” The Setback Doctors put Connor on the highest dose of oxycodone to deal with the pain, and he felt like the drug restricted him mentally and physically. “I wasn’t going to sit around and watch Judge Judy and pop pills every day,” Connor says. The Comeback (Part 2) It took…
