The type of males that are conventionally handsome are the males about whom your grandmother or mother says things like "Now he's a nice young man...".

The sort of male that you actually feel it is appropriate to refer to as a man.

Often have manly jawbones and a light tan, but not to the point of skin cancerousness.

Probably plays some sort of sport. Most likely a sort of highbrow upperclass sport. Like tennis.

The sort of male that authors like Jane Austen and the Bronte sisters wrote about. The adjective that first comes to mind is 'Dashing', although in reality, they are probably pretty dull.

Also brings to mind the Tom Waits song 'Eyeball Kid' off his album Mule Variations.
