New men's style blogs
Thanks to the proliferation of new men's retailers and style blogs, menswear in the Twin Cities is getting more attention than ever. Now two new Minnesota-based men's style blogs have popped up: Mill City Men (www.millcitymen.com) and Hipsters in Work Boots (www.hipstersinworkboots.com). Mill City Men gives a local spin to the street-style format popularized by the Sartorialist, illustrating how Midwest style differs from that of the coasts while showing that Minnesota style is more than just flannel and work boots. On the other side of the coin is Hipsters in Work Boots, which lovingly mocks that stereotype.
