On the road. Discovering who This New Man is.
O/S Swag – Does One Size Fit All for Men From Everywhere?
Part of our motivation for this site was a recognition that there are a lot of new website talking about men, men’s styles and men’s shopping. Apparently men are a commodity of dramatic interest: Fuck Yeah, Men’s Fashion (http://fuckyeahmensfashion.tumblr.com/).
But even those who are spilling the FashionBeans aren’t always doing so with an eye toward the Americas, and particularly how el Norte y el Sur men are going to be blending their styles. While the entire world is experiencing what it means to be dressed up in global diversity and cultural attraction, sometimes we forget that there is more to the pieces than to the whole cloth.
When we started putting La Parada together as the STOP to talk about men, we discovered the UK treasure of http://FashionBeans.com. If you haven’t seen it, go take a look.
But does their Euro-Contemp take fit one and all? Here are just a couple of examples where we can see that there are alternative considerations for the Spanish flavor. Search the Beanie Site for the words in parentheses to see what these fine men of the Continent have to share:
So what do you think? Do the Men of the Americas have the same take on these wannabes?
Since this is an early post, here is the challenge: TELLS US WHAT YOU THINK. In English or Spanish, it’s up to you. Take a journey to see the original pieces if you want, as they are worth the adventure. But what do you think as a member of the border-crossing team?
