Tyler Thoreson has been in the online men’s style game long before the #menswear movement.
In 2004 he joined Conde Nast where he helped launch and served as executive editor of Men.Style.com. The site was the online home of GQ and Details, but also produced a large amount of original content. In 2010 he moved to Gilt Groupe, where he now serves as the head of editorial and creative for both Gilt Man and Park & Bond.
“I’ve been into clothes and style virtually my whole life. Being 6’5″ — which I’ve been since I was 15 — makes finding clothes that fit a challenge. Actually, I take that back, it makes finding stylish clothes that fit a challenge. That’s part of where my fascination with style and fit comes from.”
Here, Tyler gives us a glimpse of his day-to-day personal style, showing off his ability to combine dressy elements with casual ones for a look that is a little hard to describe:
“A part of me suspects that defining one’s personal style is detrimental to same, but here’s my best attempt: Modern classic. Classic modern. European American. Midwestern Continental. On a good day, David Hemmings in Blow-Up meets Jack Nicholson in 5 Easy Pieces meets Roger Moore circa ’68 meets Josh Peskowitz on his day off.”
1. Soft & Sharp
“This is definitely a cold day look. The sweater is one of my favorite pieces in my wardrobe. It’s made from Mongolian cashmere, the softest, warmest cashmere in the world.
I’ve had the Brooks blazer for several years. It’s one of the first slim-fitting tailored pieces they did, and it’s still part of my regular rotation.
The red cords are really just and excuse to bust out that Michael Bastian pocket square.”
“I’ve had the Rogues Gallery boots, which are made by Quoddy, for 5+ years, and I figure they’ve got another 15 years of wear in ‘em.”
