My man is trying to update his style from the college t-shirt, jeans, and hoodies that he’s been wearing for the past few years. The thing is when we try to look for inspiration fashion blogs for men on the internet, it’s far harder then for women.Any ideas for something that’s a little classy and a little funky in the male fashion blog world? -Lauren
Ok, so a funny thing happened this summer: someone told my husband Andreas about Pinterest, and suddenly my sweatpant-uniformed yoga-teaching partner has become obsessed with men’s fashion. Like: OBSESSED. One minute, dude is wearing the same men’s Lululemon pants for weeks at a time — and the next, he’s coordinating bow-ties and monk-strapped shoes, reading men’s style blogs, and building a Pinterest board dedicated to his favorite men’s fash.
(Side note: I’d been encouraging him to get more interested in fashion for YEARS — ultimately, all my efforts were a fail. Pinterest beat me. I mention this only to say that if you’re trying to persuade a partner into taking an interest in their personal style, stop wasting your time. 14 years of loving prods got me nowhere; Andreas needed to find his own inspiration and motivation.)
Anyway! My husband’s transformation in mind, I decided I’d pass Lauren’s question to him to answer. Here are his recommendations for men’s fashion inspiration, complete with a visual sampling from each site.
Great all around site out of New York. Good articles detailing various aspects of fashion and/or specific clothing essentials. The two guys that run it have a really refined, yet bold style that I really like.
My favorite tumblr! Basically just pictures culled from all over the web, but the curator posts a LOT and has a nice aesthetic.
Men of Habit
Profiles, articles, and advice. Pretty extensive site and some good stuff to be found within.
If you are interested in preppy style (and I mean preppy) this is a pretty good place to get inspiration.
Personal site with tons of great photos and articles culled from all over the web. Lou himself also has a really bold and interesting personal style that I like.
And of course…
Now, DUDE-HOMIES: I know you’re out there lurking. Now is your time to step out of the shadows and share your sources of dude fashion inspiration.
