I don't actually like Arashi all that much but Perfume is a guilty pleasure of mine so I sat through all of the latest Himitsu no Arashi-chan episode to watch their collaborative dance.  And after watching this sequence, I have to admit it was a little mune-kyun:

And while Kashiyuka's イケメン4大要素 ("Four Major Elements of Hot Guys") worked for Matsujun and Ninomiya (草食系男子…!), I don't think V-shirts and skinny jeans would work for every guy. My personal Ikemen 4daiyouso would probably be:
  1. Well-fitting business suit. It better be crisply ironed and with a complimentary tie. None of this too-long sleeves or too-baggy pants nonsense. Bonus points if it's pinstriped.
  2. Over-the-ear headphones draped around the neck. Maybe not at work, but if you're commuting with it? Not too big that your head drowns in them.
  3. Trench coat. Kind of ridiculous to be thinking about trenchcoats in the middle of this heatwave, but yeah, trench coats are hot. Especially belted ones. Long umbrella is optional. *____*
  4. Stringed instrument. No, seriously - a stringed instrument is an automatic +10 item for ikemen-quality for any guy ever. I'm not just talking the obvious guitar or bass - a guy sitting with a cello or a harp would also be considered slightly hotter than an instrument-free male.
Other items that didn't quite make this list include "long waiter aprons", "sweater vests", "chef whites", "Y-shirts with just the collar button undone", and "Remington 870 Police Combat with folding stock". So what's your 4 Ikemen Elements, f-list? (or just plain 4 Moe Elements if you want to make it genderless XD)

Glasses, pony tail, properly worn yukata, normal length skirts.

Others would probably have maid, neko mimi, knee high schools, school mizugi, those don't do it for me though.

Fuck yes. Suit lovers unite! Get the good taste back into those suits!

Trench coats are hot.

I am with you on this 200%. Also, while I have no musical instrument fetish, cellists and violinists are automatically hot by my standards. And pianists, but you can't drag that around very easily.

My 4 Ikemen elements? I have a feeling you know. Oh ho ho.

Glasses. Well-fitting business suit, double bonus points if it includes a vest (vests are made to be taken off. True story). Properly lengthy winter scarfs, no flimsy fashion scarfy shit. And since I have a wrist fetish, either gloves---the 'wearable to business' kind---or metal watches would do.

Other items not making it into the list includes : Black wool coats, trenchcoats, briefcases, properly shined leather shoes, ribbon ties and Y-shirts with the sleeves folded up just once (no rolling or multiple folds). Also, for real guys, properly combed back hair is really hot.
