The urban gentleman

I found this lovely blog while I was procrastinating this morning, which is something that happens to me a lot on a Friday, and a lot after an early morning yoga practice. *Wink*

It’s called The Urban Gentleman.  In the sea of women’s fashion blogs, it’s great to find one dedicated to men’s fashion and styling men, of which there are plenty.

Cutting edge style was once the domain of the gay man, but there is no reason why the straight guys can’t up their game and get on-trend (South African cargo shorts and t-shirt wearing men I’m talking to you…and don’t even get me started on running shoes outside of the gym!).

So: don’t be afraid of colour, leaner silhouettes, standing out from the crowd, mixing it up a little, and the consistently cool Converse All Star. Take inspiration from these:

And then of course there’s always Shia LaBeouf, who does scruffy and red carpet  equally well. It probably helps though that he’s not hard to look at…
