BACKGROUND

Coffee with Jake Metzger
PC: Tell us a bit about your background.
JM: Consultant by day, Downeast and Out by night. Grew up in Maine, went to school near Philadelphia and ended up in NYC.

PC: How did you get interested in menswear and get involved in blogging?
JM: My foray into menwear really began with my first job after college. I really had no idea what I was doing and was stuck in the typical basic business casual morass, as I joined my current firm. However, I soon found that two of my colleagues were quite dapper (saw my first pair of double monks on one of them) in their own ways, and this inspired me try and look better. I began reading blogs and educating myself, and the tumblr grew out of that. I basically had a excel file of menswear images that was getting a bit too large, so Tumblr was the natural progression for storing those. After that, I met Lawrence at Nepenthes and things progressed from there.

PC: How would you describe your style?
JM: My style sweet spot is a typical mix of Italian and American casual tailored clothing. I like wearing basics and staples in terms of pieces and colors (navy, blazers, slim chinos, etc), but then use texture and pattern to liven things up a little when possible. Growing up in Maine, I also gravited towards the prep end of the spectrum, so I like incorporating that influence into my current wardrobe, whether it's through the occasional pastel, polo shirt, or a pair of tie loafers. In my opinion, the Italian casual tailored style meshes well with prep, as many of the elements are shared. The Japanese are great at combining these aesthetics, so they are always inspiring as well. As far as individuals go, I have had many influences, but some menswear luminaries, Squarzi, Kamoshita, and Valentino Ricci, for example, really stand out.

Coffee with Chris Fenimore
PC: Tell us about your background.
CF: I grew up in Brooklyn, in Bensonhurst. I go to The New School and I study literature there. I'm not entirely sure what I want to do when I finish school but I'd like it to include editorial photography and/or something fashion related.

PC: How did you get interested in menswear and involved in blogging?
CF: Like everyone else, the Internet honestly. I made a Tumblr and found a bunch of blogs through there. I met a good amount of the guys who run the blogs I followed at (Capsule) and from there I stayed in contact with a large majority of them.

PC: How would you describe your style?
CF: Comfort is key. Washed jeans, a super soft sportcoat, OCBDs. The kind of stuff you see older Italian men wearing at Pitti.

PC: Where do you see your photography going?
CF: It evolves as my portfolio builds--the more scenarios and opportunities I have to shoot, the more I learn about myself. (Asked him where he sees his photography career headed)

Coffee with Alex Delany
PC: Tell us a bit about your background.
AD: I grew up just over the bridge from Philadelphia, a city that is very much his home. I'm currently entering my senior year of college, studying graphic design and marketing at The College of New Jersey. Last summer I interned in the advertising department of Condé Nasts' DETAILS magazine, gaining knowledge and experience in the menswear and design industries. After graduation, I hope to develop a creative agency (currently in the works) that offers branding, creative content development, and website design for young fashion, culinary, and music minds and labels.

PC: How did you get interested in menswear and involved in blogging?
AD: I absolutely owe every ounce of my creativity and interest in menswear to skateboarding. It really showed me that the gear you wear has the ability to create an image or visual identity for yourself, and my style has progressed from Vans (still wear them every week), skate tees, and jeans to my current image over the past ten years. I started The Pantalones about two years ago with hopes of inspiring and educating myself, and that has turned into a tool that others can use for style inspiration and advice.

PC: How would you describe your style?
AD: My style sweet spot has a lot to do with who I am right now. I'm a senior in college, and honestly, it's all about fun for me right now. I like popped collars, bold stripes, and classic color combinations; I want you to see me, but I don't want to be the center of attention. I've always said that my style is that of an American college senior vacationing in Italy. Men like Michael Bastian, Nick Sullivan, Valentino Ricci, and Miles Davis have always been style influences, but I credit a lot of my personal style influences to graphic design theorists that have nothing to with menswear. The theories of Vignelli, especially, translate to personal style so perfectly, and like he preaches, I like to keep my personal style as an honest visual identity for myself. It's all about honest presentation.

Coffee with Chris Callis
PC: Tell us a bit about your background.
CC: I work on a lot of the product development for Proper Cloth and try to play as much squash as I can when I'm not in the office.

PC: How did you get interested in menswear and get involved in blogging?
CC: Back when the menswear blogging scene was more or less just Michael Williams (summer of '09), my roommate and I wanted to do something to stay in touch while we were away from college. We started a small blog to have something to work on together while we were back at home.

PC: How would you describe your style?
CC: I love the light and soft construction in garments you'll find from Italy, but with some more American sensibilities. I'll gravitate towards a pair of jeans and an oxford shirt, but do a soft spread collar and pair it with a totally deconstructed jacket. I'll think about what I'm wearing when I get dressed in the morning, but after that I don't want to think about my clothes until I hang them up at night.

Coffee with Harrison Brunswick
PC: Tell us a bit about your background.
HB: Growing up on the east coast, I bounced around for a little bit before settling in at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

PC: How did you get interested in menswear and get involved in blogging?
HB: My interest in menswear is pretty minimal, discussing lapel widths bore me, I've just always had a passion for developing one's own style. My blog started right around when tumblr was first launching. I saw what jjjjjound and haw-lin.com had been doing and wanted to do something similar, just a bit more focused on the female form. Somehow TTGP has gotten lumped into the #menswear conversation, much to my surprise because not too many photographs of men are featured on the blog. My bet is that the #menswear community likes a good dose of t&a

PC: How would you describe your style?
HB: My daily style is minimal, white pinpoints and black t's, a pair of Japanese selvedge denim, and some beat to shit shoes. However I am particular to an end-on-end with a contrast collar. The white texture of an end-on-end paired with the contrast collar creates an effect that has been dubbed the 'lady-killer'.
