I’m frequently asked to write more boy orientated blog posts, particularly when it comes to fashion.
I know a few of you struggle when it comes to style inspiration, and why wouldn’t you?

You can buy great blazers all over, but here are a few of this season’s gems.

Don’t believe the claims that it’s just for girls, some of the manliest, most successful men I know use Pinterest.
Here are a few of the gems from my Mens Style board…
If you’d like a Pinterest invitation, just leave a comment with your email address & I’ll zip one over.
