Fashion Blogs ALL respectable men (should) read

In blogger, Fashion, Fashion Heat, Good Look, In the Know, Men, One to Watch on January 21, 2010 at 3:58 pm

I’ve gotten a bit of feedback since starting this blog. The main thing being I should add men’s fashion too. I’ll be the first to admit that I can whip up a mean men’s critique. I’ve got a good eye, considering I was raised by a single fashion conscious father. But while I can add some meaty men’s fashion, why should I when there’s a collective of passionate peepers geared towards men’s interest? For those of you men who haven’t been paying attention, here’s a run down of the best of the lot. If you need some inspiration, please, look no further.

GQ

Anyone, and I mean ANYone who wants to know about fine men’s tailoring and grooming goes to GQ.com. This site is the business.  Even I go on there, but then again, I aim to know about fashion writ-large.  They also have typical content like women, profiles and current events. It may seem a bit debonair at times, but every man can use some cultivation no matter how nonchalant he may be.

The Fashionisto

This blog is a personal favorite. It’s very editorial and dramatic at times, but if you want to know what’s happening in men’s fashion it’s really all there. If you’re looking for a bit of lifestyle, you’re not going to get that here, but it’s a great reference site for the latest on designers, runway shows, male model of the month and the like – and yes, even if you’re a hetero man it’s okay to get the skinny on a male muse.

Selectism

I’d probably get in trouble for saying this, but I actually think Selectism is better than GQ. It’s a service site; bang on for the latest releases and where to buy. If I’m looking for Tom Ford’s latest drop or the lesser known Lyle & Scott, they’ve already got it posted with lookbooks and availability. What more could you ask for?

Style Salvage

This site’s more refined than The Fashionisto, ediger than GQ, but more in-depth than Selectism. It’s for men that have a genuine interest in men’s fashion and what that world has to offer. He’s great for interviews and giving you a more personalized look at the fashion world.

A Continuous Lean

 A Continuous Lean is a very wordy blog – not for people that want quick references. While I won’t rubbish it by labeling it a smart man’s style guide, it’s more of a lifestyle blog than anything. It’s very American suburbia, very Vampire Weekend. Ultimately, you will have to be bit die hard to get into what he’s about, but he’s good at what he does.

Hypebeast

This site’s the most ‘street’  of the bunch, but they’re so big on the map right now that everyone’s literally trying to get on. Ranked in the top five fashion sites on the Internet, it’s a strong source for men’s fashion. What’s also really cool is that they’ll link you to online stores you’ve never even heard of – they dive in really deep. Hypbeast’s a tough pill if you prefer the aforementioned sites, but if  you’re looking for a cool pair of sneakers, a really interesting t-shirt, or something alternative, then Hypebeast is your guy.
