Yes We Can

[Picture courtesy of Jake Davis.]

If you head over to Jake Davis' blog you can toss in your two cents about your favorite men's style (because guys aren't interested in fashion, obviously) blog.  While I don't think all of these (our) blogs should be measured against each other, these kind of things are always popular.  Out of Jake's entire post the most intriguing thing for me is the above image.  It is a perfect graphical representation of how I feel about this whole menswear blogosphere thing.  While all of our blogs are fantastic in their own right, what we have created together is bigger/better than any single one of us.  As Aristotle once (supposedly) said, "the whole is greater than the sum of its parts".  Head over to vote, discuss or just observe.

p.s. If you look at all the blogs I follow, it's easy to see how difficult it is for me to pick a favorite or even 3 favorites. My vote was kinda a cop out as you can see if you check for my comment.  Also, shout out to Brenn who has been a loyal reader before I even knew where this whole thing was going.  She actually put me down as her #1 choice, which is kind of amazingly flattering.



  1. One aspect I don't like is the uniformity of thought throughout the blogs. Nobody really stands out against the trends purveyed by everyone else. I'm getting a little bored reading about shapeless workwear.

  2. Angelo - "Trends" are just that...I'm doing what I believe is my part in creating original content so I can only really speak for myself...

  3. I have to agree with Angelo. If I read about another $200 chambray shirt...

  4. I don't know if I agree with the 'uniformity' of thought amongst the blog world. I think that we all have pretty different tastes, but obviously there is going to be some overlap. We can only reflect what's being designed and released, so obviously chambray's a popular guy right now. I do agree that the best thing about this whole phenomenon has been the community that's arisen.

    But maybe I'm partial 'cause my blog is in the image...

  5. Greenjeans - First off, great blog, and I appreciate you taking the time to head on over here to comment. Secondly, I agree with your sentiments on overlap and community...and you're not so much partial as youre probably excited to be recognized (at least I think...).
