Our partners at Say Media ask me a few questions about menswear, current trends and what it takes to create engaging content.

Check out the full interview here.


Thanks for reading,



  • Gazman

    I’m an avid reader of style blogs and TSB was the first one I came across, about 18 month’s ago. To that point I never knew these things existed. It might sound dramatic but it has been somewhat life changing. Thanks!

  • Jaws

    “I don’t read any other blogs or style websites.”

    Think this site, while providing some decent content, is readily influenced by prominent menswear blogs. Citing sources signifies credibility.

    • Dan Trepanier

      …regularly.” Taking me out of context there Jaws.

      Of course we’re aware of the industry at large, as anybody in business should be.

      Anyway, thanks for your support.

      • Jaws

        No problem. Always nice to credit those which inspire/influence you though, even if you’re reading occurs occasionally vs. regularly.

  • Darren

    I have been following Dan since early 2010, and have always been anxious for the next post. Engaged and captive audience.

  • Anon

    Weird responses

    • rismomax

      Hey Anon, criticism is worthless if it isn’t constructive, but you’re probably just a troll anyway.

      I read the whole interview. As an aspiring designer, I am impressed with how professional your responses were. Keep it up Dan, you understand your audience better than any other style blogger out there, as far as I’m concerned.

      • LouCaves

        I’m wondering how concise and thoughtful responses like, “a confident swagger is much more important than up-to-date fashion,” would be considered a weird response.

        Good interview, TSB. Keep inspiring, it’s helping Chicago!
