Welcome to Masculine Manhattan, a street style blog focusing on stylish, masculine men of Manhattan, created, photographed and written by Ehren David Edralin.
This city contains an unparalleled array of stylish men. I always felt when it came to capturing street style in so many amazing blogs devoted to that very subject, the men always got the short end of the stick. They were represented for sure, but it seemed like, as an after thought to the beautiful ladies. A lot of times as I peruse these wonderful street style blogs, the men have to be wearing something outrageous, overly hip, trendy, flashy or “fashion-y” in order to make the cut. I am supportive of that perspective and enjoy a wide variety of style on all types of guys, but I wanted to create a blog that focused as much on the man wearing the clothes as the clothes themselves, as well as the diversity of masculinity.
There are a lot of guys who have no interest in fashion, but have a vested interest in looking good. Sometimes, it’s not even about the clothes, but about the way a guy carries himself – his gait, mannerisms, energy, elegance, swagger, and stance. Sometimes it’s his nonchalance, aloofness, confidence but mostly his masculinity. From my experience, these guys are wandering all over the borough of Manhattan, waiting to be captured for this blog.
So enjoy and send your feedback. I love hearing what you have to say.
