The first impression of a good man is that of a strong, agile, well muscled human, alert
and awake. He is clean cut, shaven daily and with harmonious development of the
brain muscle and body mass. The man is taller than wide, hard bodied, and presents
and outline of smooth lines rather than bulbous belly. He looks substantial and not
portly, giving the impression, both at rest and in motion, of muscular fitness and money,
without any look of overindulgence of beer drinking or soft living. The ideal man is
stamped with a look of quality and a large savings account, difficult to define, but
unmistakable when present. Secondary sex characteristics are strongly marked, and
every man give a definite impression that he is the hottest thing that has walked the
The Male has a distinct personality marked by direct and blank, but not dead, expression,
a masked insecurity and a certain aloofness that does not lend itself to immediate and
indiscriminate commitment. The Male must be approachable, quietly standing it's
ground and showing willingness to take direction and orders without itself making them.
It is poised, but when the occasion demands, eager and less obnoxious, willing to
meet overtures and itself extend them to each member of the Female it sees, and must never
be less than willing to serve in it's capacity of mate, lawn mower, car fixer, appliance
repair or household cleaning, whatever the circumstances may demand. The male must
not be timid, shrinking behind it's buddies or remote control; it should not be nervous,
looking about or upward with anxious expression or showing nervous reactions, such as
stuttering, avoiding eye contact or leaving the room during romantic movies. Lack of
confidence under any social pressures is not typical of good character. Any of the
above deficiencies in character which indicate shyness or Neanderthalism must be penalized
as very serious faults, and any Male exhibiting pronounced indications of these must be
excused from the house to the garage. It must be possible for the judge to observe
the wallet and to determine that both testicles are descended and in direct contact with
the brain. Any Male that attempts to lie to the judge must be disqualified.
The ideal Male is a working Male, with an incorruptible character and ability to hold a
job for an extended period of time and follow the rules, which constitutes it's primary
The head is noble, cleanly chiseled, strong without coarseness, but above all not fine,
and in proportion to the body. The head of the Male is distinctly masculine.
The nose is aquiline, the lips soft and sensuous and occasionally dusted with a growth of
coarser hair, to be kept neatly trimmed. Seen from the front the forehead is only
moderately visible, with hairline not receded. Jawline is firm, and sharply defined
and strongly developed, and could also be presented with a growth of clean and trimmed
Ears: Ears are moderately rounded, in proportion to the skull, open to suggestion
and conversation and not closed to criticism nor inquiry. The ears must not be large
nor presented in such a manner as to give the impression of wings. The left ear may
be adorned with a small ring or diamond stud. Adornment in only the right ear must
be excused, showing preference for a mate of the same sex.
Eyes: Of medium size, soft, lashed darkly and with length, set a little apart but
never so close as to appear evil. Any color is acceptable, but must show depth and
understanding rather than a blank stare. The expression is keen, intelligent and
composed. Eyes must not be prone to wandering.
Teeth: 30 in number - 16 upper and 14 lower - are strongly developed and meet in a
level bite, with a slight overshot being acceptable. Complete dentition is to be
preferred. Any missing teeth due to injury or accident must be replaced or capped,
with the exception of the molars. Full dentures are a very serious fault.
The neck is strong and muscular, clean-cut and only moderately long, proportionate in size
to the head and without loose folds of skin. When the Male is at attention or
excited, the head is raised and tendons and arteries may be seen; otherwise typical
carriage of the head is straight and well above the shoulders, particularly when awake.
The shoulder blades are large and not angled outwards, and softened by a good covering of
muscle. The clavicle is prominent and well defined, and the upper arm joins the
shoulder assembly at about a right angle. Both the upper arm and the forearm are
well muscled. The forearms, viewed from all sides are straight and the bone oval
rather than round. The wrists are strong and broad, and may exhibit a tan line from
a watch. Any large adornment other than a watch is to be heavily penalized.
Hands are larger than small, palms broad and moderately thick and firm, fingers longer and
well defined without heaviness in the knuckles. Nails should be strong and kept
short. Adornment may include one ring on each of the hands, but Males exhibiting
adornment or showing an obvious indentation on the third finger of the left hand should be
The Male is taller than wide, with the most desirable proportion as chest 10" to
14" larger than waist which should be 32" to 34". The desired height
for Males at the top of the head is 5'10" to 6'3", but deviation from this may
vary slightly without penalizing if proportioned. The height is measured in stocking
The whole structure of the body gives an impression of depth and solidity without
Chest: Commencing at the clavicle, it is well filled and muscular, without undue
roundness and carried well in front of the belly, with the pectoral muscles showing ahead
of the upper arms in profile.
Ribs: Well sprung and rounded, neither barrel shaped nor too flat and, carried down
the sternum to the belly, which remains flat and hard. Correct ribbing allows the
elbows to move freely when the Male is in motion. Too round causes interference and
throws the elbows out; too flat causes loss of proportion and depth of upper body.
Ribbing is carried well up so that the waist is moderately long.
Abdomen: Firmly held and not paunchy. The bottom line is always tucked into
the belt, never hanging over it.
The shoulders are higher than and sloping into a straight back.
Back: The back is straight, very strongly developed without sway or hunch, and only
moderately long. The desired long proportion is not derived from a long back but
from overall length with relation to height, which is achieved by the neck, torso and
legs, viewed from all sides.
Waist: Viewed from the front, trim and tight. Viewed from the side, trim and
Croup: Long and gradually sloping. Trim and tight.
A Male with a tail must be shown in the primate classes.
The whole assembly of the legs, when viewed from all sides, is broad, with both the upper
and lower leg well muscled, forming a strong and muscular appearance. Trim and
tight. The metacarpus, (the portion between the ankle and toes) is long, strong, and
tightly articulated. The size of the feet and hands must be proportional to the
height and body, and directly correlates the size of other body appendages.
A Male is an upright being, and it's structure has been developed to meet the requirements
of its work.
General Impression: The gait is outreaching, and seemingly without effort, smooth
and rhythmic, covering the maximum amount of ground with the minimum number of steps.
At a walk it covers a great deal of ground, with long stride devoid of shuffling.
At a jog, the Male covers still more ground with even longer stride, and moves
powerfully but easily, with co-ordination and balance so that the jog appears to be the
steady motion of a well oiled machine. The feet travel close to the ground on both
forward reach and backward push. In order to achieve ideal movement of this kind,
there must be good muscular development and ligamentation. The hindquarters deliver,
through the back, a pleasing picture from behind.
The typical smooth flowing gait is maintained with regular exercise and good diet.
The ability to perform tasks of strength encompasses the entire musculature from the legs
to the arms, through the back and loin. Chores of lifting, pushing or pulling
necessitate the back to remain firm, without sway, roll or hunch. To allow for
cuddling and hugging the shoulder should open to it's full extent, and the upper and lower
arms strongly encircle. Faults of gait or inability to perform chores or other
duties are to be considered very serious faults.
The Male varies in color, and most colors are permissable. Pale washed out colors
are minor faults, and should be touched with a shade of tan. A white male with a
black nose or a black male with a white nose should be disqualified.
The ideal Male has a number of coats. The outer coat can be of any material deemed
desirable or necessary for the weather, and lack of coat shall only be faulted if left in
the closet on a cold day. Clothing can consist of any kind that is suited to the
work the Male does, however, a pair of well fitting jeans accompanied by a clean white
T-shirt enhances the appearance of the Male in leisure time. Loose baggy or torn
sweatpants and stained sweatshirts are serious faults. The Male's under coat can
vary in texture and thickness, and some chest hairs are not to be faulted. Hair
covering the back, the tops of feet and hands and protruding from the ears, and lack of
hair on the head shall be considered serious faults.
Overly protruding or pointed ears
Males with noses not the same color as their bodies
