How to Crush It in Custom Menswear w/ Dan Trepanier (Articles of Style) + 100% Handmade Leather (From Hobby to Income)

Posted on

This weeks we have part 1 of our interview with Dan Trepanier from Article of Style and you are in for a treat...

Articles of Style (formerly The Style Blogger) was launched in 2009 and quickly became the most popular menswear blog in the world, with millions of readers in more than 150 countries. Since then AOS has been featured in GQ, Esquire, Men’s Health, Playboy, Complex, Sports Illustrated, The New York Times, The BBC, The Today Show, and many others.

Founded by “America’s Best Dressed Man” Dan Trepanier, the original goal of the site was simple; to make fashion easier and more relatable for “real guys”. Dan spent several years researching, buying, wearing and reviewing menswear made by just about every brand in the business, from high-end bespoke to cheap "fast fashion“. It was an unending quest to find the perfect brand; one that combines quality craftsmanship, ethical manufacturing, timeless design, expert fittings for any body type, and personal wardrobe planning that could help his audience of “real guys” dress with style and confidence – with minimal effort and lasting results.

Frustrated with the market, and encouraged by his loyal followers, Dan went back to school to study menswear design, spent 4 years apprenticing with a bespoke tailor in NYC, and put together an all-star team to turn his acclaimed blog into a full-service menswear destination. The goal of AoS is to combine quality garmentswith expert service and provide relatable inspiration that goes beyond cloth and touches on the lifestyle of the modern gentleman.

Then we dive into men's fashion and business talk with a young man who started a hobby, learned more and turned it into a full fledged business that is on fire. If you have a hobby and think - I could get paid for this, you're right. Our guest, Nate from Lost Dutchman Leather tells us how he did this and how you can do the exact same thing. Get ready to take notes and be inspired!

This is the #1 place for mens fashion, business and lifestyle!
