We’re always cruising the streets looking for personal style that excites and inspires us.

Here’s some shots we’ve collected over the last month or so, with some commentary about why they stood out to me.



1. The Perfect Jean


Nothing in life is perfect…but if there ever was a perfect pair of jeans, these would be them. Raw denim worn-in to perfection, then cut for the trendy frayed effect. Extra points to my man Nate Bui for that great hat and subtle man jewelry.

    I need to trim up… can you guys ask #6 to write a diet plan? And where did you dig up Egon Spengler? I thought he O.D.’d on free base after Ghostbusters went out of business.

    Amazing fits. Definitely inspired me.

    Birkenstocks? Nah, dog. I don’t care what website you founded, it’s not a good look.

  • The GZA

    Schlossy, that jacket Boglioli?

    Must get a olive cotton blazer pronto.

  • Henri

    The looks on the more casual side all work fairly well, but apart from #4 not really feeling the suiting displayed here.

  • Gazman

    The guy in number 4 looks great, but can’t say same for some of the others. I understand that it’s all about individualism, creating your own style, yadda, yadda, but seriously, WTF are those hideous footwear on the dude in pic 5? If it was worn but a schmoe no one knows you’d call it for what it is – awful, but as it is worn by some bloke with a style blog, then it is considered somehow ‘stylish’.

      Gazman, your constant negative comments kill me. Out of these 10 looks, you only appreciate #4?

      The Birkenstocks are having something of a comeback in trend-forward communities, as seen with updated editions (like navy suede) worn by fashion influencers (like LAS).

      Ironically, what you mention is exactly the point of developing personal style, in my opinion. With a great eye for style, you can pull-off just about anything… The same piece worn by a “schmoe” looks “awful” like you said…but worn by a person with great style can look very cool and inspire others. THAT IS STYLE.

      Anyway, thanks for your continue support.

      • Gazman

        Constant? Way off the mark.

      • Gazman

        BTW, I said I don’t like ‘some of the others’ but I like especially #4. FYI, I like #10, #9 and #2. I also like the bloke in white in #5. There you go.

        I think you read what you want to read, Dan.

  • Tommy

    The 5th picture got me back to your old blog and I’ve just finished reading all of them.

    • http://tsbmen.com Dan Trepanier

      Nice! Four years later I think most of it is still relevant, yea?

      • Jimi Brady

        Yes, absolutely – I just went through a lot of your original posts several weeks ago, and it was just as helpful/inspiring as it was when I first read ‘em.

  • Brady P

    Best street style by far! Killer looks all the way around.

  • http://undefined Cobby

    Love ‘em all.

    All these looks are nice as hell.

    I’m really sold on 5 & 6 though…Is there anything as sharp as a guy wearing a suit just because he wants to?

    Someone needs to proof read #5. Unless both guys are on the right, or the guy on the right is actually two people at the same time.

    • http://tsbmen.com Dan Trepanier

      Fixed, funny guy.


  • Joe

    Gonna need a Guerre feature stat! How about a “cool and comfortable shooting in NYC” theme?

  • Ali Naaseh

    Holy COW Niko looks fresh, I want to be that guy

  • Shawn

    Always loved Guerre’s style!
