For this post it’s all about me, well not quite me but the blog that I created a little over a year ago. I have been thinking recently about how ‘The Bespoke Gentleman’ has evolved and developed over the last twelve months into something that I’m fairly proud of. It’s kind of hard entering the blogging game when there is so much competition, but with a major passion and dedication to the menswear industry, I thought maybe my blog would stand out just a little. There had been times when I nearly gave up but through perseverance and a little determination, the blog is now growing at a healthy rate.
One of the most enjoyable aspects about doing this blog is the fantastically inspiring individuals that I get to meet, who are all just as passionate about menswear as I am, creative individuals with a thirst for creating brilliant clothing. Without sounding like I’m at an awards ceremony, thanking everyone involved, I do just want to thank a few brands that took a chance on my blog at the very beginning, brands such as S.E.H Kelly, Hentsch Man, and 19-Eighty-2, and what makes these three brands even better there owners are bloody lovely aswell, so it’s been nice to keep in contact with Paul & Sara of S.E.H Kelly, Alexia Hentsch and Fatima of 19-Eighty-2.
I hope you the reader get as excited about some of the products that I feature on this blog as much as I do…sometimes when I visit some of the brands featured I get so excited about the cut, feel of the fabric, colour that I truly appreciate getting to spend time with the creatives behind some of the coolest men's brands in the country.
Finally, I have enjoyed pretty much every moment that has been spent working on this blog, so thanks to my readers for sticking with me. I have some really exciting stuff lined up for the coming months that I can’t wait to share with you. Anyway enough from me getting all philosophical on you, let’s hope year two of The Bespoke Gentleman is going to be even better.

Now you don't get to see my face on this blog very often (there is a reason for that) but the last time I posted a picture of myself was for my 1st post on this blog...so it kind of seems apt that one year on I do the same.
