Found these pictures from Engine Magazine Sunday on Excellent Male Model and immediately got majorly inspired by the following pictures. Enjoy, and hopefully you are as inspired by these shots as I was.

My tastes seem to change daily but something I always gravitate back to is the idea of simplicity: a simple shirt, jacket, pair of jeans, accessory. When I dress myself I usually take a minimalist approach and pair simple things together. But since it has been cold lately, I have been experimenting with various kinds of layering (as some of my inspirations show). But what is great about these photos is that while they may be simple or easy, they offer something special, some little tweak like a tuck-in of the shirt or roll of the pant. I may be simple but I always like to keep things interesting.

I figured what better way to start off a blog about men’s style then to do the first official post (becuase I don’t think of an intro as much more than that… an intro) about personal style and what is currently inspiring me. Below is a collage of some of my favorite things right now with a gallery of images below with all from the collage as well as a few that didn’t make it in (becuase it’s hard to make these things despite the way it may look! Haha).

Right now, I know he’s hyped, but there is something about him that I find very inspirational in his photographs, I really like Baptiste Giabiconi. As evident by the fact he is central in the collage. I’m also in love with the belted trend right now; belts over coats and blazers, this guy who is tucking his leather jacket into his jeans and belting it, that canvas suit that looks like denim with the double brown belt, gah there is just too much.

From the pictures I’m sure you can also tell my flare of glasses I currently like. I’m a self-diagnosed sunglasses whore and I don’t feel bad about it, these in the top right corner are the new Balmain Oliver Peoples and I really need them right now… not kidding. Anywho, that’s my little rant, enjoy!
