My friends, it seems like just days ago I was clocked in and talking to you about starting 2022 in style — and yet, now we sit on the verge of 2023. How about that, ehh? It was a momentous year for The Style Guide, if I do say so myself, with a daily publishing schedule and plenty of opportunity to spotlight favorite brands and retailers, be it Todd Snyder or Billy Reid or Buck Mason — the list goes on, of course.
Through it all, throughout another full calendar year of freelance writing pursuits & world travels via my Instagram, consider this a heartfelt, deep and true THANK YOU for your support of The Style Guide!
I launched this blog way back in 2013 in my college bedroom with a desire to better understand the basics of versatile, everyday menswear — from denim to boots to Oxford shirts — and along the way, I hoped to perhaps impact a few fellow readers who felt the same about great style. My blog helped me dive into the world of fashion, land fashion PR internships and fashion PR agency jobs, and eventually, build a freelance career doing what I truly love. If that sounds a bit too simple, well, trust me when I say I can’t quite believe it either… most days, at least.
And on that note: Thank you for reading and for engaging with my work! If this blog has helped you improve your wardrobe in any way, large or small, that’s more than I could ever ask for… and I mean that sincerely!
Of course, there’s still one more 2022 headed your way tomorrow (my weekend Style Pick, naturally). In the meantime, perhaps you’ve got your mind set on stepping into a new year in style with on-sale menswear from Taylor Stitch or else the Huckberry See You Out There Sale — I can vouch for both, trust me on that. Either of those sales are more than worth your time, and perhaps even worth a toast of coveted Pappy Van Winkle whiskey to ring in 2023.
In fact, I wish I myself could raise a glass of the good stuff to the devoted readers of this small Brooklyn blog — I don’t have any Pappy in my home bar cart, but consider this a toast all the same. From me to you: Happy New Year, cheers to good health, great times and great style, and we’ll see you… next year!
