My girlfriend and I have a running disagreement as to whether I have any style at all. My tastes are all over the map, so I tend to argue that I don’t have any style. She insists that I do, and I usually let the conversation drop before there’s a danger of convincing her that I’m just a plain, boring dude. Hmm, I may have to do some rethinking. I may just be a Man of Many…
Man of Many is a curated platform of men’s products, gear, gadgets, technology, and style. On the surface, this sounds awfully familiar and pedestrian. I was rather unenthusiastic when I first started perusing the collections. But my indifference burned off quickly as I immediately found a number of items I wouldn’t mind owning.
I was attracted instantly to the Now&Then Eco-Essential Pen. There’s no hiding the fact that I write, and I love cool writing instruments. This pen might not settle any style debates, but it alerted me to a keen eye for useful and captivating objects at work behind the website. I’ve been a complete slacker when it comes to riding a bike the last couple years, but the Rizoma 77|011 Bicycle made me genuinely eager to go for a pedal again.
The more I looked around, the more I realized that style has a lot less to do with eye-popping elements than it does with wearing the clothes and using the goods that have a comfortable feel to them. Things that let you be you – style that feels so natural, it hides the style. Can’t say I’m too upset that my girlfriend’s going to win the next round of our discussion.
