We started our men's board awhile back, when guys were just starting to discover Pinterest. I remember finding it a real challenge to even find interesting images on the web to pin. Mad men was an inspiration as was Boardwalk Empire for men's style referencing. The retail stores were not really tapping into all of this awakened dapperness. We decided to do just that. We opened a store on Etsy. The Modern Renaissance Man. Our approach is to curate the "pick of the litter" in vintage accessories like neckties, cufflinks and tie bars. Since we started we have really created a full shopping experience to include our own line of designed items: magnetic tie tacks and lapel pins called Mag TAKs, unique silk pocket squares, UPCYCLED tie bar designs etc. We did our research. Men seem to prefer to shop online. After seeing online stores selling pocket squares for $40 or more and silk ties for upwards of $200, we knew that men deserved better options. Styling a wardrobe requires a variety of prints and colors. You should not have to break the bank to get yourself set up for looking great.
The Etsy store is a passion of ours, just my husband and myself. We do everything: curate the merchandise, style the products, photography, run our blog website (www.mrm-accessories.com) social media marketing, shipping......you get the picture.
