Verb: To select, organize...the items in a collection. Subscribing to the belief that style is indeed in the details...not on the tag. A man's wardrobe should reflect the thought and care he put into selecting the items that go into it. Follow me on Instagram: aCuratedMan Facebook: aCuratedMan Twitter: @aCuratedMan
What Its All About...
"I give a d*mn about what brand you are, I'm concerned about what type of man you are, what your principles and standings are." - Mos Def.
Sitting in a diner with a couple of friends at 2am a while ago, the conversation turned to what men wear and why. I realized that I had in the couple of months leading up to this late night conversation, found myself caring more and more about what I put on in the morning. Matter of fact, I was actually "getting dressed" versus "putting on clothes."
The next morning, I sat in front of my computer and started this journey, wanting to learn the basics of fit, cut, style vs. fashion. Since then I've found that no, its not always true that "it ain't the brother that's in the suit, it's the suit that's on the brother." Quite the opposite in many regards. Three-piece suit or jumpsuit, our outward appearance as men speaks solidly to our brand, to what kind of man we are.
Work Hard. Dress Well.
April 12, 2013 - TSBMen Feature
When I first really got interested in dressing better, one of the first blogs I stumbled across was The Style Blogger, run by Dan Trepanier. TSB quickly became a reference point for me when I got to wondering about something and so I continued to pay close attention because of course, there's no such thing as too much knowledge. I entered the February Readers Giveaway that's run on the site and didn't crack the top ten. Damn, right? Well, a few days later, I get an email from Dan giving me a heads up about the Honorable Mentions page and wanting to know if I'd be interested in doing a Spring feature. Ah, hell yea. Check it out here and,thanks to Dan and the team!
