From Squalor to Baller is 2 Years Old!

I started this blog May 6, 2012, after attending the Styleforum 10 Year Anniversary party and meeting several great people in the “hashtag-menswear” community. I wanted to keep in touch with all these fun folks so I created tumblr blog to stay in the loop. I slowly began to use it as a place to write, since that was something I missed doing; somehow, people started finding it and reading it.

Since then, this site has continued to grow and surpass my low initial expectations – I’ve been featured on TSBMenthe Effortless GentPut This On, and more; been added as a spotlight “fashion” blog on tumblr; met hundreds of great people in the clothing industry; covered trunk shows in NYC and SF; taken factory tours; and made many good friends. On top of all that, this blog is read by nearly 15,000 subscribers on tumblr and receives over fifty thousand hits every month. It’s become more than I ever imagined it would be and continues to grow every day. I’m still a small fish in a big pond of wonderful bloggers, but I love the small community that has found its way into this corner of the internet.

I’d like to thank all of you that have read this site, sent me emails, left comments, taken photos, invited me into your homes, and given me helpful feedback; you’ve all played a part in the growth of this site and I’m incredibly grateful.

So, now I ask – what do you want to see here in the next year? I have some ideas, but I’d like to hear what you think. Would you like more product reviews? Sale alerts? Fit pics? Nonsensical ramblings? I’d love to hear what you want to see. And know that big things are coming in the near future, so stay tuned.

Thanks again, everyone. You guys are great.
