If you’re anything like me, the fun isn’t just in getting a new pair of boots, a jacket, etc; it’s in appreciating the process that made those boots, or the story behind the why that new jacket is constructed in the way it is.
While not yet proven, my hunch is that all fashion geeks share this same fascination to some extent.
That being said, I’d like to share with you some of my favorite videos covering everything from sneakers to sartorial. Instead of aimlessly searching for “mens fashion videos” only to come up with the handful you’ve already seen, I’ve taken the time to compile a list of my top favorites.
Whether you’re bored with nothing to do or just looking for something to kill time at work, I’m sure you’ll find something on this list that will hook you in.
