Becoming a man isn’t just about a number or an age you turn that suddenly springs you into manhood. It’s about the formative experiences that change your outlook on life. From how you see women, to how you use socks, the journey to becoming a man is fraught with all sorts of new experiences. It’s different for every guy, of course, but for 80’s boys like me, these are the experiences that were street lights lining the way on the journey from boyhood, to manhood. Obviously, much of my rise from boy to man was thanks to women, but as with this gallery, other things peppered the way as well.
