A Brief Blog Profile: The Urban Gentleman

by Thomas Hynes


I don't think it's a stretch to say that the bulk of writing done on fashion is done more specifically on women's fashion. And I get that. Having two older sisters, I can tell you there's a market for it. But, hey, I wear clothes, too,' says just about every guy in the world. Surely, there must be fashion blogs for me. Well, there are. And The Urban Gentleman is among the very best.

In their own words, The Urban Gentleman is here to "easily help men of all backgrounds transition from a  baggier basic style of dress to a cleaner, more tailored and trend-pushing style." It's a blog of 'style, class, culture, and a little bit of swag.' And it's not all clothes. The site also covers entertainment, design, culture, fitness and gadgetry. They even have this great post on different grooming products. It's as if to say, 'alright, gentlemen. Your clothes may look fine, but don't forget your face.' (Ok, so technically these products are not just for the face. But this is a work blog, and we've got to move on.)

I like the Urban Gentleman because it portrays style within reach. And more importantly, it promotes a style within your comfort zone. You don't have to buy and wear everything promoted on here. First of all, it would be pretty lame to bite someone's style so specifically. And secondly, that's not how fashion or style work.  This site has great ideas and examples. But at a certain point, you've got to forge your own look. Let your clothes and your gear be an expression of who you are. Be your own person. Be your own gentleman.

News Widget

Our widget allows you to display PR Newswire content on your site with very little back-end programming required.  You not only get the headline, but also the body of text of the news release, keeping the user on your site at all times.  In order to do so, the difference between our Widget and other widgets is at the end of the sign-up process, you will be provided with two pieces of source code -- one for the page where the Widget itself will be displayed and one for the pages that will display the body of text of each news release.  In addition, the sign-up process allows you to have 100 percent control over every aspect of the Widget's appearance, so that the Widget can blend in fully with the look and feel of your site. Still not convinced? Here's what one blogger had to say about the widget.
