Top 50 Blogs Every Man Should Know About

Top 50 Best Blogs For Men

“No matter how busy you may think you are, you must find time for reading, or surrender yourself to self-chosen ignorance.”

- Confucius

There are so many awesome blogs and websites geared toward helping us dress better, be healthier, use our manners, and be better men. It seems like every month, a new fashion blog pops up (I’m guilty here).

I follow a handful of these blogs religiously, but there’s simply not enough time in the day to keep up with all of the great stuff being produced. So, I’ve put together this list for any man who wants resources about:

  • LifestyleReal manliness, self-improvement, personal and professional growth, post-adolescent life, and life’s finer things (cigars, spirits, etc.).
  • Fashion – Graduating your style, dressing for specific occasions, looking like a professional and wearing clothes that fit.
  • Gear – Gadgets, cars, technology, games, apps, decor and other manly things.
  • Fitness – Eating right, working out, losing weight, gaining muscle, getting enough sleep and sexual health.
  • Finance – Getting out of debt, saving money, investing, making more money and getting rich slowly.
  • Grooming – Shaving, skin care, personal hygiene, aging, oral care and hair loss.

Here’s what you won’t see in this list: Photo blogs of random “stylish” people on the streets of NYC, look books, pictures of runway models from “next spring’s hottest designer” and, finally, street gear. It’s not that I don’t like these sorts of websites. I sometimes find myself on The Satorialist or Street Etiquette, browsing photographs and what not. But I don’t really get anything from these blogs.

To be honest, they’re a little beyond me.

I don’t know the names of any designers, I’ve never attended a fashion show, and most of the stuff that runway models wear looks absolutely ridiculous to me. I don’t care what’s trendy. I’m more interested in further developing my personal sense of style and building out a timeless, high quality and versatile wardrobe – without breaking the bank.

With that said, here are my 50 favorite websites for men. Most are blogs, but there are a couple of magazine sites and forums on the list too. You can sort by rank*, name or category (fashion, lifestyle, fitness, gear, grooming and finance).

*After attempting to rank these sites myself, I decided to rank them according to their Alexa popularity score, a trusted metric for internet “rank”. It’s really hard comparing an awesome finance blog to an awesome fashion blog, or even trying to decide which blogs in a given category are the “best”. I love all of these websites, so don’t pay too much attention to their rank.

That’s a Lot of Reading…

I know, I know. It would take about a decade to get through all of this great content, and if you followed even half of these regularly, you probably wouldn’t get much done. I recommend sticking to three or four that you really like.

Sign up for their RSS feeds so that new posts are delivered straight to your inbox. Then bookmark this page so you can use it as an reference when you need information on a specific topic (like how to do a squat the right way or good alternatives to Wayfarers).

Enjoy!

  1. Hey man,
    This is awesome. I like how you categorized it on the right side so I can choose which ones apply to me. I have chosen about 5 of the blogs from here to start following. Not all of them apply to what I want but some of them do.

    Do you follow all of these blogs? That is no joke man.

    • I wish I could say that I follow all of these, but who has time for that? If I read all of these blogs every day, there would be no time for C.A.E.S. (you know what I’m talking about).

      But yeah, they’re all great resources. Glad you found some new ones you like!

      Real men don’t read blogs

      • Real men have display pictures.

      • Walk Like A Man, accessed at oktobeaman.com has been launched. It is a new blog devoted to issues concerning men and masculinity. Recent Blogs – Is too much attention to the “heroism” of the single mom diminishing the importance of dads? and Does the gender gap in education predict the diminishing role of men in our economy? – are intended to promote the conversation about re-defining masculinity in light of the confusing roles and expectations for men of all ages in our post-feminist society. Blogger, Dr. Richard Horowitz, is a life coach and author of a soon to be published memoir about his journey in defining masculinity. Richard has been involved in the men’s movement for 20 years as a past president and group facilitator for a non-profit organization “Men Mentoring Men.”

    i’ll also let my buds over at askandy and realmenrealstyle know they’re on your list.

    thanks again and many thanks!

  4. Brock,
    Thanks so much for including OTC in your Top 50 list. It means a lot to me that you find real value in what Off The Cuff has to offer.

    Best,
    Chris

    • Chris – thanks for dropping by! I’m a big fan of OTC (and not just because I’m a fellow DC guy…). Keep up the great work!

  5. Aww yeahhh I made the top 50! Nice. Thanks for the shout-out.

  6. Thanks for the shout-out! Great list with some more fantastic blogs to add to my bookmarks.

  7. Thanks for mentioning us Brock. I will take a look at your articles in the coming days.

  8. Hey Brock, great list! Check out http://www.mensgear.net/ if you get a chance would like to get your opinion/ review on our site thanks bro!

  9. Hi Brock,
    Thank you so much for mentioning the site. I will be linking in an upcoming post!
    Brad

  10. When ‘Art of Manliness’ was not #1, I stopped reading the list :-P Seriously, thanks for putting this list together.

  11. You missed a few… I like Dudepins and Gentlemint

  12. Really nice review. I will like to add my own website to the list. Is that possible.
    http://www.baxtton.com is Online Magazine for Men, Men’s Style & Lifestyle, Technology

    Thanks in advance

  13. I will be checking out the blogs for inspiration- thank you!

    I am a woman designer of handmade paper goods and have been searching the web to find out what men want when it comes to thank you cards, picture frames, et al.

    Thank you cards are standard after a job interview, but what about sending them to restaurants, or hotels that provide exceptional service. Maybe send one to a former mentor???
    Are guys interested in unique, handmade paper goods designed especially for them? If yes, what are you looking for? I have been thinking about designing a line of passport and checkbook covers……..

  14. You’re sexist. These blogs are sexist. They’re based on a female ideal of what constitutes a man. I don’t like you. By the way, some men are gay <3

  15. Solid list! I’ve added http://craftedamerican.com/ to my daily blog checks, they focus on made in USA stuff.

  16. Solid list. There’s quite a few on here I’ve never heard of. Thanks for sharing, man.

  17. Happy Movember gents and you left out your favorite man blog…http://howtogrowamoustache.com
    you are forgiven…no grow and make us proud.

  18. John Thomas says:

    Nice article. Some of these websites are great, but some of these sites suck. I don’t how reclaimyourmanhood.com is not on the list. It gives quality advice for men in all areas of life.

  19. Jake Anderson says:

    I have at least 10 of those in my Feedly reader. Personally I frequent these sites more first than any listed above. But still a great collection!
    http://www.joesdaily.com
    http://www.ballerstatus.com

  20. A blog all males should consult would be:
    http://antimisandry.com/forums/

  21. Henry Blake says:

    Great List! I probably follow at least 10 of these. My favorites might have to be coolmaterial, uncrate, and gear patrol or http://vanitydrift.com which I think you might be missing.

  22. Thanks for sharing your impressive list of information.

  23. A great list thanks for creating it, I have recently started using a website called http://www.thechicgeek.co.uk for my fashion fix and news. Was just wondering what other people think about the site?

  24. Wow, this is quite an impressive list Brock!

    Here are two other sites I frequent that your readers might like:
    http://www.guysgab.com
    http://www.bullz-eye.com/

  25. Hey Brock, Quite an interesting list you got there. I am relatively new to blogging. Can you check out my blog about men and tell me what you think about it. Menmanual.blogspot.com

  26. Beware of Art of Manliness. I encountered an online bully almost immediately after I started posting there.

  27. Ryan Edwards says:

    Love this list! Big fan of the Art of Manliness. Also found this little known blog called Mr. I Do that I find really funny.

    http://www.mrido.com/

  28. Andreas says:

    Great article! Really nice review! I will definitely have a look at these blogs, they sound pretty good. A few I actually already know but I’ve not been very active lately. Thanks for sharing.

  29. Hey ! This is a great post by the way. http://www.RoyalFashionist.com is a new guide for men blog with less than a year of existence. Would love to hear what you think about it and your feedback on it. Maybe we can be in your list as well. :) Hoping to hear back from you

  30. I really like EverydayCarry.com. Not only do I waste all my time at work on it, I manage to spend most of my minimal salary on products through the site.

  31. Great list! I would like to introduce my spanish fashion blog http://www.rayasycuadros.net

    I hope you like it!

  32. jeff shore says:

    I like this blog for men. Totally different. http://fiftytwotasks.blogspot.com/ It’s 52 tasks to accomplish–one a week–to make you a better man. Weird but good.

  33. There are definitely a couple of Lifestyle sites on your list that I haven’t heard of before, so I’ll definitely have to go check them out.

    In the meantime, make sure you check out http://www.guysgab.com/ as well!

  34. Thanks for the great list!

    Check out the blog I just started and tell me what you think :)

    Have a Great day!
