How To Talk To Girls At Parties

A poorly curated inspiration board for the sartorially inclined.

The Oral History of Menswear Blogging
OK, we can’t decide which we love more: this fascinating oral history project over at GQ.com—or this pitch-perfect spoof of it by those little punks over at Vanity Fair’s website, whose gleeful snickers we could hear from just a few floors away here at the Conde mothership. You’re on notice, Juli Weiner: the next time you post about Jackie O’s secret plot to corner the St. Barths real estate market, we’ll be waiting. Oh yes, we’ll be waiting.
So anyway: menswear blogging oral history! Check out this excerpt below! The rest is here!

We spoke with all the legends—Lawrence Schlossman, Fuck Yeah Menswear, Jesse Thorn, Michael Williams, Scott Schuman, Mister Mort, Josh Peskowitz, the Wooster, and many, many more—to discover how this whole menswear blogging thing really went down. Read the full-on history here, but first, an excerpt: 

Michael Williams (blogger, A Continuous Lean): I remember not having anywhere good to go. I remember when Style.com got their updated URL to include “men,” and that was like a big thing. I don’t think, until 2008, [men’s style] was taken seriously.
Jesse Thorn (blogger, Put This On): The one that I most enjoyed reading was A Suitable Wardrobe. In the early years of his blog, in 2006, what he was doing was taking the canon of basic classic menswear information that you might find in an Alan Flusser book or a G. Bruce Boyer book and putting it into blog form.

Find the rest here. 


An oral history of dudes arguing about clothing on the Internet. Today is the culmination of a glorious subculture.  I guess the world is ending in 2012.
