From the increasingly well-documented street style scene outside of Pitti Uomo (it’s starting to rival the scene outside any major fashion week venue) to the number of nattily dressed gents we see walking down the street in NYC, there’s no question that dudes have been stepping it up in the personal style department.
There’s even a burgeoning menswear (that’s #menswear if you’re scrolling through Twitter or Tumblr) clique, comprised of editors at print publications like GQ and Complex as well as bloggers at sites like Four Pins and Selectism and Hypebeast. They are the arbiters of men’s style, speakers of the language of #menswear. Yes, they have their own language and we dont’ understand at all. Cop some jawns? That dude is sprezzy? Say what?
We caught up with Kevin Burrows and Lawrence Schlossman, authors of the hilarious menswear phenomenon Fuck Yeah Menswear to chat about their blog, just-released book, and what half of the stuff they’re talking about actually means (because seriously, they speak a different language).
