The Style Blogger was started in March 2009 by Dan Trepanier to share men’s style tips and answer frequently asked questions from friends and colleagues. Over the past year, readership has grown dramatically, and I now have followers from all over the world, in large part due to being named Esquire magazine’s Best Dressed Man in America 2009. The experience has been both exciting and inspiring, and I am grateful for all the wonderful associations I have made in the process.
As it has grown and evolved over time, the website has become a style diary of sorts, chronicling my personal style and sharing it with my readers, in addition to the blog’s fundamental features like tip-of-the-day and reader questions. As you read, please keep in mind that this blog is simply my opinion. I consider myself an expert in style (which is subjective), not fashion (which is objective).
Born and raised on a farm in a small town outside of Windsor, Ontario, Canada, it’s been quite a journey to working in the fashion industry in Manhattan. I came to New York City to attend Columbia University, where I was recruited to play basketball and graduated with a degree in psychology, all while developing my second love; style.

Having a good sense of style, in my opinion, is the ability to bring things together in an unexpected and original way, being creative with aspects such as fit, proportion, fabric, layering, accessories, etc in order to create an image that is uniquely your own. Unfortunately, first impressions are often only fabric deep so it is important to put an effort into getting dressed in order to represent oneself in a positive manner. I consider it an art form which, like any other, is an expression of one’s individuality.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy reading!
