"Slut" can have two meanings:
- an immoral woman, or prostitute
- a dirty and slovenly woman
I would like a term for men that is the equivalent of the second meaning. Is there a term for describing a man that is dirty and slovenly?

I don't know why @Monica says "slob" applies to both sexes. I often hear (particularly younger) people apply "slut" (and "slag") to males, but I rarely hear "slob" applied to females. This NGram chart seems to confirm my somewhat sexist distinction...
...in that what I see as "wrong gender" usages don't even show up at all.
