There are gazillion of blogs out there, all about men’s fashion. Probably, gazillion more posts, that deal with the subject. While, I am in no way an expert when it comes to wearing something, every day. Or flaunting my manly feathers. I strongly felt touched and, understood what wearing clothes is all about. These videos, in no way is going to affect my style. That’s because, up until watching these videos (see below), I didn’t know what I was wearing, was/is an extension of myself.

If you are someone like me, who has never bothered about what to wear when, and so on. I strongly suggest watching these videos below. All 17 of them, give a sense of what Fashion and Style is about, for a Man. Some of what has been said, in those ~90 seconds of footages, really hits home.

The videos are not long, on an average they are about ~90 seconds each. Best 30 minutes spent, understanding what Men’s fashion and, style is all about. While, I may not know the individuals in the videos below, I respect their individual point of views. Their point of views, about Men’s fashion and, style are terse, direct and, very down to earth.
