MARCUS TROY
Marcus Troy is a lifestyle “blogger,” who has most notably broken the chains of blogging, and elevated his website into a lifestyle brand. It truly encompasses everything cool or on the verge of cool. To say he’s ahead of the curve would be an understatement.

DapperLou
DAPPER LOU
The name says it all. However, Dapper Lou maybe known more for his eye behind the camera lens, than the name implies. Working on projects for brands such as Banana Republic have garnered him credibility within the fashion world. But his effortless style has earned him a following of more than 45K on Instagram.

ART COMES FIRST
Sam Lambert and Shaka Maidoh make up Art Comes First. They are duo of stylish men who find it imperative that art should come well before fashion. We couldn’t agree more.

JESSE BOYKINS III (JesseBoykins3rd)
The soulful Mr. Boykins III gives his audience a piece of his art everyday. Through his collection of Instagram posts, he makes the bold statement that a man’s style is a reflection of who he is from within.

StreetEtiquette
STREET ETIQUETTE
Joshua Kissi and Travis Gumbs are the geniuses behind the Street Etiquette brand. Some might say they’re the two most stylish men on the Internet, but we doubt they would care for those accolades. They’re more focused on empowering their audience by expressing their artistic take on their everyday surroundings.

Moruf
MORUF (Moruf88)

Pharrellwilliams
PHARRELL WILLIAMS (Pharrell)
Even at the age of 40, Pharrell still manages to dress like your most stylish friend, and not your cool uncle. And he always pushes fashion to the limits. See Pharell’s smoky the bear hat, circa 2014 and probably forever.

ChancelorLee
CHANCELOR (ChancelorLee)
The photographer behind the Keep Pittsburgh Dope movement is often stopped and photographed himself, as many are drawn to his take on classic mens wear.

JoeKenneth
JOE KENNETH (JoeKenneth_)
The timelessness in his esthetic is something to admire. Never trendy, but instead following the beat of his own drum, Joe constantly keeps his followers on their toes. A poet, well-dressed gent, and overall creative would be the best way to describe Mr. Joe Kenneth.

SteveOnoja
STEVEN ONOJA
When it comes to the suit and tie look, no one does it better than Steven Onoja. His Instagram profile is like a constant stream of inspiration for the guy who aspires to dress a bit more refined each day.

They don’t call him ‘Swaggy P’ for nothing. The ultimate risk taker, Young makes everything work for him.
