Menswear Blogger Spotlight: Peter Nguyen of The Essential Man
Ah, the menswear community. Where once a week we get together and play euchre at the rec center, debating tie widths and comparing notes on pant breaks.
Just joking about the rec center (though I’d be IN for that weekly euchre game, guys), but it’s true that there’s a super-talented, super-friendly group of guys right here in NYC who write about men’s fashion and who I’m inspired and encouraged by every day. As such, I wanted to share with you guys some of those folks so you can get to know them and be inspired, too. I’m obviously very happy that you read Style Girlfriend to get the female perspective on guys’ style, and that you trust us to take the leg work out of dressing well in brands and items your friends and co-workers might not be wearing. but there’s more to menswear than just SG.
First up? The Essential Man. Peter’s a pro stylist who’s got great ideas on building a wardrobe you can feel confident wearing. He even wrote a guest post for Style Girlfriend not too long ago!
