One Year Ago…

It’s been a year since The Urban Gentleman first hit the scene… and I honestly can’t believe it, time really does fly! I put out my first article on June 10th, but I got my first “big break” (well it was more of a little break) on June 23rd when I got a shout-out on They mentioned my “Lupe Style: The Style of Lupe Fiasco” article… and that’s when the buzz slowly started to grow.

Then about a month or so after that my blog slowly began to rise as one of the top male fashion blogs… its hard to believe that I went from having 4 or 5 random readers to thousands each day– that’s alot of pressure. But you all have supported me the whole way and I adore you for it. I wanted to go through all the old emails to give specific names of people who have supported since the beginning, but I realized that would take forever and I have a ton of emails that I haven’t even read and need to reply back to… the few I can think of of the top of my head- Alija Harrison (one of the original die hard fans, he even wrote a couple articles), Leslie Garry, Andre Tisch, Ashley Lee, my avid young urban gent readers like Herbert Murray, my newer hardcore fans like Antonio, and of course all the editors of magazines who have sent me stuff (GQ, Details, Men’s Vogue, etc)… I just want to send out my sincerest gratitude to each person who has supported and told others about The Urban Gentleman- you’re really awesome! Oh and I can’t forget to thank those who have done articles about me or The Urban Gentleman (like this one).

The Urban Gentleman is continually growing, we’ll remix some things this year, and maybe introduce some new features (who knows)… there’s just sooooo much more to come (eventually) and I just hope you guys stick around to see :)

  1. congratulations!


  2. I'll be around. This is the best blog hands down. You're the heavy weight champion of men fashion blogs, which I expect because it's written from a female perspective and you have good taste. On that note- Will you marry me?

  3. Thank you so much for this blog! I really mean it. Ever since I grown out of following stupid trends being a teenager and all I've been trying to find a new look with no luck. Since I ran across this blog I've been able to start slowly build a new wardrobe and add new things. Being a poor college student it's hard to get nice clothes but with along of shopping around I slowly am building it up. Ty again!

    On the other hand, I was getting new glasses again this year and I ended up getting some awesome plastic frames. I was wary at first not being used to them but now I'm digging them with the plaids.

  4. To put is simply: I don't know where I'd be without this blog. to give you a more vivid example:

    I went from looking like K.Fed to looking like Brad Pitt… NO LIE! I should honestly send you my before and after pictures, you're so comprehensive with your topics. NO ONE NO ONE NO ONE NO ONE Does it better than you.

  5. Congratulations!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  6. Can I just say you really did touch my life.

    I was really at an impasse in my life. For me urban gentleman is not just about the clothes. It was a lifestyle change for me. All of the articles have helped me with my transition to being a man. Everything from the articles about grooming to the articles on how to entertain a guest.

    Thank you is to simple of a word to express my gratitude and appreciation for this blog.

    I really do wish you the best.

    Happy Birthday or anniversary whatever you decided.

    This glass is for you Jacinda….
