In modern times, I wont say it is abnormal for men to be seen before the mirrors. We have flooded the market with expensive branded shirts, pants, silk ties, gold plated cuff links, very expensive glasses like carrerra and the like, exclusive gel for his hair, very expensive Gillette shaving systems to make his face as smooth as a mirror, the costly Christian Dior cologne, then the Axe spray ( do I need to mention its effect? u have already seen it in TV ads ) etc etc. The amount the modern man usually spends a month just to look good and appealing to all and sundry, is more than enough for an average middle class family to pull on for one month. So it is natural that he will be before the mirror whenever he has a chance just to reassure himself that all the money has been well spent to make him appear handsome and irresistable and that like Helen, he too can launch a thousand ships....!
