The rest of my favourites (JJJJound, Selby, Secret Forts) cover topics other than men's fashion, more regularly then the ones above. I choose these three because they are focused and on-topic for this competition.

Secret Forts
ACL
All Plaid Out

Also, slightly out of genre, but I have to put it up- A Restless Transplant.
Somehow, I discovered all these blogs through that one- I think I was searching for what I now know are the Persol 0714's and A Restless Transplant came up. His blog links to a lot of the above and I stumbled across a whole world I had no idea even existed- Men's fashion that doesn't suck or come from designers that are either in the douchebag section of Macy's or on runways (a world I know nothing about). I grew up wearing L.L. Bean everything and never stopped wearing flannels or oxfords. It's been so great to discover the above set of blogs that are fashionable and masculine- not metro. (Is that whole thing over yet? Fuck those pointy shoes and that hair gel, you know what I'm saying?! I honestly had no idea there were other guys out there who might be googling "the sunglasses Steve McQueen wore in Thomas Crown Affair".

To all you blog proprietors out there, keep the inspiration coming.

8. Selectism (pain to navigate)


I visit yours most often, but I took your request seriously not to include it in the rankings. I also visit Inventory every day (more often than Ivy Style and Secret Forts) because Inventory updates so regularly and does such a good job, but I couldn't quite fit it into my "top three."

1. The Selvedge Yard
2. A Time To Get
3. Inventory

But seriously Jake yours is the best hands down.

3. A Time to Get

Though, really, I don't think of Valet as a blog, but they're killing it lately. So they should get the top spot.

So hard! They're all so different.

- Valet (for the content)
- Jjjjound (for the photos)
- Secret Forts (for the inspiration)

Your blog has been a great source of information for me too and would have been in my top 3 (not telling you in what position though!), but assumed you wanted to know about the 'other' blogs out there.

2. JJJound
3. 4Q Conditioning

Besides even being mentioned in this category, what I'm most excited to see here is that most, if not all of these top picks are us individuals or "little guys"...

Not GQ, not the big conglomerate companies,...us. The people that are passionate about the industry and trying to get our ideas out and let our different styles shine through. Oh, and the people that buy this stuff. (*hint, hint brands)

Major props to everyone doing their own thing and trying to make amazing products, great reads, and even cultivating images.

Congrats to you guys...
