A mere half-decade ago, menswear web sites were about as hard to find as a rap album called I'm Gay. Yes, it's a brave new world: fire up your Tumblr dashboard right now and tell us you're not looking at Nick Wooster's mustache. In recent years, hundreds of menswear bloggers have helped teach a generation of sons with dad-jeans fathers how to dress along the way. Or at least, which American-made shoe brands to buy on eBay.

In the early days of the menswear Internet, the conversation was born on Style.com, message boards such as Ask Andy About Clothes, and on streetwear and sneaker-centric sites such as Hypebeast—not to mention a little blog by a future GQ photographer you may have heard about. To celebrate approximately ten years of obsessive cataloging, we strapped on our double monks, rolled up our raw denim, and hit the blogosphere to track down the men who have made #menswear our favorite trending topic.

discuss.

His name was "misterman" and he was a fairly prolific poster, especially on the subject of J. Press, he got in some arguments with other posters over a J. Press lapel pin which didn't go over well with the forum. It got heated, he yelled at people, most of the bad posts have been deleted.
