hey man! i was looking at a recent post of yours on lookbook and saw you lived in Atlanta! I live right north of there in Kennesaw. I am an international business major and looking to concentrate in fashion and style! I was wondering if you knew any men's brands/ blogs/ resources I could start looking in to or volunteer at to get more experience and see more of what it is like? Thanks for your time!
Hey I’d love to help, for blogs the one’s I visit frequently are street etiquette, hypebeast, southern sartorialism, quality and function, & most importantly mr porter. They have a journal you should look at frequently for a lot of insight on menswear. As for brands Billy Reid & Sid Mashburne are good ATL based brands but then you have your generic ones that are also good like J.crew, Banana Republic, H&M, etc. as for internships in Ga those are hide to find pertaining to fashion, but if I find anything I’ll gladly share.
It’s summertime out here in Atlanta and that means humid ass i don’t want to leave the house type of weather. Obviously we have to attend our day to day jobs so staying in isn’t an option. Trying to still look the business part and staying comfortable seems damn near impossible out here but if you check my last post for “Mr.Porter” it explains it all. Now not all of us can afford $200 linen shirts and such so we make due with what we got, but it is possible to look the part for a better price, BELOW you will see two fits I put together for a regular day.
Brands: J.Crew, Banana Republic, H&M, GAP, Ralph Lauren,etc.
The last thing on a teenage males mind when heading to there closet is to grab their “Sunday Best,” for a regular day out & about. Usually it’s grabbing whatever’s clean or what’s comfortable. I’m envisioning changing that mindset of the modern teen about looking nice for special occassions only. Michael Bastian illuminates this perspective of being comfortable while also being well fit and put together. The suits he put together for Barney’s ground floor were a great example of the basis for your spring/summer wardrobe. Not implying that you should be wearing full suits during the summer but just take a look..
