Today marks the fourth anniversary of Style For Guys! Now that's pretty remarkable, isn't it? When I first started this blog, I really didn't think much of it. Which explains the extreme banality of its name. I have often wished I would've just come up with something artsy like "The Style Solipsist" or anything that makes me sound remotely intelligent. I even had to add a bloody '4' in the url, for the internet is a total axewound and the full name was already taken. I was all set: not only did I appear unoriginal, I also had the spelling abilities of a 14 year-old TXTING PR!NCE$S. If only I had known, that sunny day in 2009, that this little domain name would take me as far as it has now, I might've stopped and said: "Nah, this title won't do, mate." Four years down the line, I have come to appreciate my silly name. It's a true testament to the na├»ve unpretentiousness that lies behind the roots of this blog. Also, I'm a daft little man and "STYLE4GUYS" won't let me forget that. I applaud you, reader, for sticking around all these years. I know I should post more often, but not treating this as something compulsory has actually kept it alive for so long. I do promise more content this year; perhaps I'll do one of those '1 post each day for a month' kind of thingies. 
Or maybe I won't.
Un bisou.
