The Style Blogger
I started thestyleblogger.com in March 2009 to share men’s style tips and answer frequently asked questions from friends and colleagues. Since then readership has grown dramatically, and I now have thousands of followers from all over the world - in large part due to being named Esquire magazine’s ”Best Dressed Real Man in America”. The experience has been both exciting and inspiring, and I am grateful for all the unexpected associations I have made along the way.
Born and raised on a small farm outside of Windsor Ontario, Canada, it has been quite a journey to working in the fashion industry in Manhattan. I came to New York City to attend Columbia University, where I was recruited to play basketball and eventually graduated with a degree in psychology, all while developing my second love: style.
Having a good sense of style, in my opinion, is the ability to bring things together in an unexpected and original way, being creative with aspects such as fit, proportion, fabric, layering, accessories, etc. in order to create an image that is uniquely your own.
Just as I have personally, the website has grown and evolved over time. What was once an anonymously-written clothing advice column has become a ”style diary” of sorts, chronicalling and sharing my personal style as well as loosely documenting my journey from college athlete to fashion stylist and clothing designer.
As you read please keep in mind that the content of this website is is purely my opinion. I consider myself an expert in style (which is subjective), not fashion (which is objective).
Thanks, as always, for reading.
Yours in style,
Dan’s Body Measurements
As you’ve probably heard me say before, the single most important thing about a piece of clothing is its fit. The problem is, the average (North) American man is wearing clothes that are one or two sizes too large.
Therefore, I decided to include my body measurements as well as the sizes of all the clothing featured in the posts, to be used as a sizing guide.
Height: 6′ 1″
Weight: 185-190 lbs
Neck Circumference: 15.5″
Arm Length: 35″
