Parisian chic, New York’s uptown/downtown, London Cool, San Francisco Bohemian, and Tokyo’s anime eclectic.

The influence of cities on style has been present since the first set of tourists returned from England wearing trench coats and Paris wearing striped boater shirts a la Picasso/Coco (see picture).

In the last 15 years, the inter-web has changed size the of the world.

There is no sense of enigma, there are no mysterious nations or continents; we at Starved feel closer to the rest of the world, since we obsessively read blogs from regions in the world that once seemed unreachable to us.

Now, we just google shit (isn’t google awesome!) and study Phil Oh’s street peeper religu-lously.

Thanks to the blogosphere and global street style photographers, we never stop being completely entranced by the style of people in Toronto, Sweden, South Africa, Manila, etc (see our list).

Anyway, we have decided to share our creepy-global-street-stalking obsession with you. We searched through every corner of the inter-web, ran into some pornography (but that’s for another day), and toyed with google’s head, until we eventually found these inspiring male bloggers.

Some are from cities that have been established as fashion capitals for years, but others will surprise you.

Read up kids, it’s a crash course on globalism and fashion. Plus, we got these super dapper, uber stylish, young bloggers to be our models.

We think womenswear gets too much press and that’s the reason we are sticking with. If you are a dude (learn) and if you are a chick (then, you are welcome!).

This is our list of some very fashionable cities, both old and emerging!

Warning: Boyfriends we can’t be held responsible for your girl feeling the urge to get you out of your football shirt and cargo pants. Sorry dude, it’s not us, it’s you.

How does your city influence your style?

Luleå is located in the northern part of Sweden which means it can get very cold here during most part of the year. To keep myself warm + keeping my style at the same time, I tend to wear my clothes layer on layer.

There isn’t a very big range of clothing affairs here for men, so apart from buying my clothes in the mens store, I sometimes buy womens clothing + second hand. In this way I’m still keeping my style unique!

Essential Pieces in your Wardrobe?

My leather jacket, my black leather boots and my studded denim vest.

What do you enjoy most about blogging?

What i enjoy most about blogging is the fact that I get to be so creative. My blog enables me to show my art + my style to a lot of people and get great response!

If your were a jacket/blazer, who would you want to be wearing you?

I would want to be a studded leather jacket worn by Michael Jackson.

How does your city influence your style?

I think Sydney is a place that is very open to all different styles & stereotypes so I feel personally, for myself it influences me to wear whatever I like with confidence .

Essential pieces in your wardrobe?

Definitely long shirts, collared shirts , singlets , skinny jeans especially cheap Monday  jeans and I cant forget my love for my own brand anything Acid Reign 😉

What do you love most about your blog?

I don’t love anything to much about my blog just yet ,as I’ve only just started blogging . Personally I’m not the best writer  and my blog lacks good literature in its posts haha, so I feel if I had to choose my favourite  thing, it would have to be my shop  attached to my blog 🙂 .

If you were a jacket/blazer, who would you want to be wearing you? 

haha I never thought of being a jacket, but now that i have right now…  I would like to be worn by anyone who would go on  many adventures, benders, road trips, parties, festivals, events, holidays so when I was finally thrown out. I would remember those great jacket moments… in my jacket life 🙂

How does your city influence your style?

In many ways such as, the exciting people and fashion they wear, the scenery and even NYC at night can be very inspiring.

Essential Pieces in your Wardrobe?

I always have to have accessories. If I had it my way I would go over board, but less is always better. A great pair of shades and a statement necklace is always great. I love to go for colored sports watches, and maybe a gold watch.

What do you enjoy most about blogging?

I enjoy the freedom of being able to talk about whatever you want and giving your perspective on it. Its always exciting to find something your passionate about and make it interesting enough for people to want to read about it.

If your were a jacket/blazer, who would you want to be wearing you?

I would definitely want Michael Jackson to wear me, because the blazers and jackets he wore were always very regal and ornate, so I feel he would represent me with a lot of class.

How does your city influence your style?

I love Manila. Its a mix of everything and whenever I dress up, I mix odd elements together and provide juxtaposition.

Essential Pieces in your Wardrobe?

Black skinny trousers, creepers, wedges, oversized t shirt and a skull talon ring.

What do you love most about your blog?

I am really forgetful. I reckon that when I reach 70, I’ll have Alzheimer ‘s disease What I love about my blog is it reminds me of events that occur in my life. Those collection of photos bring memories and it also inspires me to grow as a creative individual. I love featuring people, friends, designers on my blog. That is my way of spreading the gospel.

If your were a jacket/blazer, who would you want to be wearing you?

Rad Hourani.. Wouldnt it be nice to be worn by the designer himself , who also makes jackets.

How does your city influence your style?

My style is not really influenced by my city. Instead, it inspired me to show and create my own style to influence other people.

Essential Pieces in your Wardrobe?

It is hard for me to choose specific items in my closet because each piece is significant. Every piece brings back several memories from which I find my sanity. Also, I bought them myself and they are the products of my hard work.

What do you enjoy most about blogging?

What I love about blogging is that it functions as a place for me to show my style to other people. I do not really mind if I might be talking to my blog alone without any readers, as long as I am able to inspire other people around the world.

If your were a jacket/blazer, who would you want to be wearing you?

Right now, I cannot really state any person in particular. But if given a chance, I would definitely want the most influential person(in the fashion industry) to wear me. It would be a great honor to be taken care of and be appreciated by no other than the most prominent fashion icon in the world.

What do you love most about your blog?
