Is it impossible to have a menswear blog with a good name?
I actually like PTO and Voxsartoria as names, although I see where you're coming from.
Back in 2005-2010, there were a lot of style blogs with names that were only tangentially related to clothing. So, Cold Splinters, Secret Forts, 10 Engines, JJJJound, Hapiscal, Gwarism, A Continuous Lean, The Selvedge Yard, Rugged Old Salt, 13th and Wolff, etc. Also some people who went by nicknames, such as Mister Mort, Papa Nui, and Hollister Hovey. Some of those people are still writing, although most have stopped.
I think it's hard to come up with a good name that's directly related to clothes or style. It's just too easy to sound corny, although the old heritage/ streetwear blog thing had its own pretense (e.g. many of those heritage blogs using semi-masculine sounding names that referenced camping or whatever).
