He takes time to respond to comments on his blog and seems to be doing something he's enjoying in his line of work as a stylist/dept. store buyer. If anything, some of the posters on WAYWRN are more "douchy" in their preening selection of wild colours and patterns and obviously clashing eyeglasses that scream "LOOK AT ME! LOOK AT ME! NOBODY APPRECIATES ME!" If he was a poster on here you'll all be on his balls.
Agreed!! It's easy to try and take down someone who is out there doing something that is daring, takes balls and confidence. It's also easy to talk a bunch of bullshit on some forum and post retarded pictures of yourself and not feel bad because 90% on the posters on here are 40+ and all dress the same, boring as hell...

Funny, it's called 'STYLE Forum,' not FIT Forum......

Agreed again!! Have you people truly looked at yourselves on these WAYWRN posts??? 75% of you dress like crap!!! Take another look yourselves and then take another look at Style Blogger, here are some examples of how you so-called experts dress: http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?t=210130 http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?t=199861 http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?t=165694
Style is no longer what it used to be, you refer to Agnelli, who I will not cut down but point out that while he was indeed 'stylish,' I am sorry to say that he ALWAYS looked the same, wore the same stuff etc. Same with Cary Grant and all of these other old-timers out there who are famous for being stylish..... It's no longer so easy to be labeled as such, it's takes balls and the ability to do something different yet still look good. While I can't say that I like every outfit that Style Blogger wears, I will say that he dresses better than any of you on here and he proved that by winning Esquire's little contest. Why didn't all of you shit-talkers enter??? And if you did, YOU MUST HAVE LOST!!!! All this emphasis on fit and bespoke and this and that doesn't mean SHIT, if you can't dress well and put the pieces of your outfit together well. And if you look at those WAYWRN photos, I will admit that many of you have very nice pieces but you jumble it all together like a full-english breakfast and what does it end up looking like??? MUSH!! Many of you guys still wear baggy-ass suits that look 3 sizes too big. I mean come on, quit hating on the young guy and just admit that all of you conservatives are a bunch of tight wads who will try and knock down anyone daring and 'really' stylish..... Dan is not the least bit douchey and egotistical. Even when I have told him that I found his outfits to be not so great, he always responds in a respectable and positive manner. That's commendable! QUIT HATING!!
