The Backstory

It started with the odd question from a friend or two – seeking help on a shirt choice; wondering whether a particular tie was a good idea with that suit; Even being asked by women to accompany them on shopping trips to offer up suggestions. This got our wheels turning. Being the type of men that like to help others, we realized that we just might have a little knowledge and expertise in a subject that could benefit others. The decision was easy. A Curated Style was born.


This is a project of passion. Started by Marvin E. Street and John Phillips – a couple of tech/design guys who can also count men’s style amongst our list of passions. We’ve always found ourselves discussing the nuances of men’s style – frequently sharing links back of forth of cool items, the latest sales of our favorite brands, and various philosophies on the tenets of style. Now we’d like to include you in our conversation.

There are plenty of men out there who dress really well. While we’d certainly welcome your eyes to our newsletter, you’re not our target. Other men couldn’t care less about how they dress. We’re not targeting you either. This is for men that want to dress better, but need direction and help on where to start.

We plan on giving you a general idea on how to dress well, open your minds to new ideas, and teach you to pay attention to the details that most don’t. Hopefully you’ll get to a point where you no longer need our newsletter and have the confidence to go out on your own and develop your own style.

Thanks for joining our newsletter. We look forward to helping you dress better.
