I’ve said before that a man’s style is only in part exemplified by his clothing. A huge aspect of it consists of the look and feel of our homes.
A man’s dwelling has the same psychological and social impact on his life as his wardrobe. If we live in messy, cluttered, dirty spaces, we tend to feel and act that way. If we surround ourselves with quality, aspirational items we will be a bit more motivated to act better and work harder.
Just like with our clothes, there is no objective standard of a man’s home that is better or worse. Some choose the clean lines and spartan utility of a modern dwelling, while others come home and unwind with reminders of travels and conquests. The key is to make your place look and feel as if it’s a reflection of you.
Here’s a great example of a small, Manhattan apartment belonging to menswear designer Thom Browne. I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves.
Between the warm tones, rich colors, hard lines, and minimal clutter, this is an ideal urban, masculine space.
All in one cool looking package. I could see a couple of these and a bench in the backyard around the right grill. Then again… these don’t look all that comfortable.
PS. I am now selling ad space on the site. If you are interesting, please get in touch via the contact page and I can give you a break down of what the space is and its price.
This looks crazy and fascinating.
It even comes in more than one volume. Keep it on your coffee table. And not that you would use it too often, but being able to break down the origin and history of the tattoos belonging to the guy across the restaurant would be a solid way to show a little element of danger to a woman.
PS. Have you gotten your Style Evaluation? It’s a great way to know the strengths and weaknesses of your current wardrobe.
These would make a great display.
Not sure if I like the heads but everything else looks awesome.
PS. Did you know I do private style consultations? I can help you dress better according to your budget and your needs.
I love old maps.
They look like they were drawn by the actual men who charted those territories. It’s too bad there is no need for cartographers as there’s something romantic about leaving the familiar behind to conquer the unknown.
PS. Tomorrow’s the last day to get a Basic Consultation for only $15.
