As I mentioned in my recent post, the last two years have been a whirlwind. One favorite aspect of my job has been getting to build genuine and lasting relationships with some my peers; in particular, the guys listed in this post… many of which are now close friends of mine.
I’m often asked who I look to for inspiration, and I’d have to say I’m most inspired by guys who are actively paving their own way. Each of these 17 guys have tackled a niche in the market and found spectacular success. A few of these guys are new to the game and others have been at it for years, but they all have one thing in common: a unique sense of self that radiates in their work (and wardrobes).
This sense of self is incredibly important to developing an individual style. Style is and should always be an extension of your personality. It cannot be purchased; it cannot be taught. It must blossom from within – emerging as a silent yet visually disruptive confidence.
If you haven’t already, follow these guys on Instagram and/or bookmark their blogs. You won’t regret it…
