What does lumbersexual mean?

A well-groomed male who looks like a lumberjack

A lumbersexual is a man who possesses an appearance similar to a lumberjack and may be considered sexy. He has a beard, often unkempt, and wears a significant amount of flannel, plaid, and denim clothing.

The lumbersexual is the antithesis of a metrosexual because he is less concerned with his appearance unless he is a metrojack, and more concerned with chopping wood and exploring the great outdoors. Movember is a prime time of year for lumbersexual sightings. The term can also be used as an adjective to refer to a lumberjack-like appearance.
