Morning! How are we feeling? Did you celebrate Sinterklaas yesterday? It’s time for a new spotlight. This week I interviewed Marco from the blog MenswearByMW. Marco started his blog in May to share his passion for fashion, lifestyle and traveling. His goal is to inspire other people by showing them his favorite menswear.. Well let’s to know Marco a bit better…..
1. Can you tell us a little about yourself?
Hi! My name is Marco and I’m the founder of BY MW. I’m 24 years old and I live in Amsterdam. I started my blog last May and I post mainly about menswear. Currently I’m working as an accountant at an audit firm, but I will make a career switch soon as I will start working at Influentials as of December 1st. Looking forward to it!
2. What was the reason why you started your blog?
I work as an accountant for over a year now. I started to realize that I didn’t like the work as much as I thought I would. I wasn’t able to express my creativity in any way, so I started to blog about menswear. A topic I always had a passion for.
3. How would you describe your clothing style?
Sustainable and clean. A bit preppy, but I like to switch it up sometimes and go more casual.
4. How do you keep coming up with material/content for your blog? Many people struggle with coming up with different articles/posts
My inspiration comes from my daily life. Walking around town, exchanging ideas with friends, looking on blogs and Instagram. I also visit PR agencies to look at collections for inspiration.
5. What are you favorite brands and shops?
Euhm.. Let me think. I really like Weekday, American Vintage, All Saints, Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein, The Society Shop, America Today and Tommy Hilfiger. That’s quite a lot haha.
6. What’s now on your wishlist?
A double-breasted tailored cashmere coat by Burberry.
7. What is your favorite trend at this moment?
My favorite trend would be the bomber jacket. Coats and jackets are my all-time favorite garments. I think I have more than 20 coats haha.
8. Who are your favorite bloggers?
I follow many people that inspire me, so it’s quite difficult to choose a few. But I really like Erik Forsgren and Adam Gallagher.
9. If someone was interested in blogging, what would be a few things you would suggest? Tips!
Know what you want to write about and focus on a particular topic. Post regularly and post things that fit your style and personality. It is also fun to connect with other bloggers to exchange ideas and help each other out.
