Looking for the best blogs for men? Here are 50+ websites every man should check out.
“No matter how busy you may think you are, you must find time for reading, or surrender yourself to self-chosen ignorance.”
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:
- Lifestyle – Gear, gadgets, cars, drinks, cigars and general savoir-faire.
- Fashion – Graduating your style, dressing for specific occasions, looking like a professional and wearing clothes that fit.
- Watches – Wrist watch reviews, buying guides and educational content
- Self-Improvement – Personal development, learning, professional growth and masculinity.
- 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.
- Home & DIY – Home improvement, interior design, do-it-yourself projects and room ideas.
Here’s what you won’t see on this list: high fashion magazines, pick up artist sales pages, websites that only publish sponsored content, low-quality shopping list sites, hypermasculine red pill nonsense, and other general internet garbage.
Instead, this list includes vetted, TMM-approved blogs for men who want to look and feel their best.
Without further adieu, here are 50 of the best websites for men. Most are blogs, but there are a couple of magazine sites and forums on the list too. These are unranked (no particular order), but you can sort by name or category:
Top 50 Best Blogs For Men
Our Personal Favorites
Since the list above is, well, a bit thorough, we (the TMM staff) picked some of our favorite men’s websites that really separate themselves from the rest.
These are blogs we find ourselves coming back to time and time again, and they seem to get even better over the years.
Here they are, in no particular order:
Primer publishes the kind of content you wish you could find in magazines like GQ and Esquire.
For example, their Gentlemanly Advice series tackles delicate problems that so many men deal with on a regular basis, like how to tell if you’re drinking too much alcohol.
We also love Primer’s Getups, an ever-expanding collection of outfit ideas for guys.
If Primer Magazine is the cool, balanced older brother you never had, Gentleman’s Gazette is your wealthy, well-dressed uncle who knows how to live the good life.
A digital menswear encyclopedia, Gentleman’s Gazette goes in-depth on everything from buttons in menswear to gentlemanly skills you can practice at home.
We especially love GG’s Is It Worth It? series, where the team takes a critical look at popular (but expensive) items like Hermes belts and Eton dress shirts.
While Hodinkee is usually the top watch blog on every list – and for good reason – we’re really been enjoying aBlogtoWatch recently.
Chock full of hands-on reviews (often with video), buying guides and thoughtful editorials, ABTW puts out a lot of content, all without sacrificing production quality.
If you’re a watch enthusiast, you’ll love this site!
If you want to build a minimalist wardrobe that has everything you need and nothing extra, Effortless Gent is for you.
Creator of the “lean wardrobe” philosophy, EG’s founder Barron Cuadro reaches men how to build a wardrobe that’s ready for any occasion – without all the extra stuff you don’t need.
Art of Manliness
While we mostly enjoy Art of Manliness content via their podcast these days, the AoM website is a deep archive of thoughtful, impactful content for men who want to live their best life.
From learning how to be more confident to making guy friends as an adult, AoM has the modern man covered.
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.

Daniel Hakimi says
Since everybody else is doing it, I figured I’d nominate my own blog. dresscode.danhakimi.com, a menswear blog to help show guys at a basic stage see what menswear enthusiasts really love about clothes.
Timothy TAYLOR says
Richard Hanson says
Just discovered the blog. Really looking forward to checking out all the recommendations. Thanks for taking the time to pour into men’s lives.
I often follow some of the blogs listed above. Mantelligence and get rich slowly are two blogs which i follow regularly. All these blogs have a different style which make them so popular. will try to pay a visit soon. For hindi language readers i would like to recommend a great blog which touches the every aspect of life. Jivansutra for Life
Great List! Hope to be a part of the list someday 🙂
Best regards from Berlin
Richard Hashimashi says
This is a great list, will take some time to get through it! And yes, you left out my fav blog for men over 50 which is http://hashimashi.com. This is a fitness blog for men over 50. It is inspiring to know that even after 50, it is still possible to get back into shape. There are tools, tips & training information to help a guy, not only lose weight, but get fitter and healthier, for example to lower cholesterol and blood pressure, as well as getting stronger with weight training like deadlifts and squats. Thanks! Rich
Joe Faturos says
Why no bold&determined? Why no Danger&Play? Two excellent blogs on being a better man, making more money and dealing with life’s fickle things.
Awesome list. Thank you Brock
Ethan Morale says
Great list Brock! Adding to that, my blog/e-zine specialised in men’s underwear:
Nick (@TheLifeofMan) says
Such a great resource for finding new blogs to follow this year, gonna take some time to get through them all! Would love to get a mention in any revised versions you may pull together.
Hey Brock great list, I can’t believe how relevant it still is all these years later! If you do an updated version it would be great to get a nod 🙂
great list! I’ll give a few of these a read now!
Tj Todd says
When you update your list, please consider – http://uncommen.org/ – Challenging men to become the Husband, Dad and/or Leader they were always meant to be.
Would be interested to see a more updated list.
http://www.capablemen.com is one that offers more value than most on that list.
Hi, nice choice 🙂
In parallel with my job, I also have a small inspirational blog.
Hope it’ll inspire you!
Thanks you all 🙂
Jason Sather says
Wow… This article was written 4 years ago and is still getting recognition? That’s awesome… A newish site you may have missed is http://colognemasters.com This site helps men find cologne!
Otherwise, I’ve been going through the list and it looks good! Towards the bottom it looks like the site quality gets a little lower but otherwise nice job
Hi Brock, that was a great list, I specially like the categorization of each blogs. Though you have missed this awesome blogs. May be you can add waitbutwhy.com and http://www.artofmanliness.com in your upcoming lists.
AoM is on the list, right near the top!
I think there is no good blog about men’s hairstyles listed here. One of my favourite blogs is http://haircutinspiration.com
check it out and let me know.
Hey guys and gals, I know this list if from 2012, when it gets updated, make sure to add http://www.TheGuyBlog.com definitely a blog every man should know about.
Have an awesome day!
Mark Lowe says
Just live simply
Joe Lowry says
Hi there… could you have a look at my modest little blog, which tries to do something different, and see if it can make your next list? Many thanks
Melissa Scanlan says
Thanks for making this list!
I just recently started blogging. It is great to be able to refer to websites like yours. My blog is a little bit of this and that but please if you have 5 mins read my opinion. “Think like a man, act like a lady”. Excuse some language. NachoAvgOpinion can be found at…
Thank you soooo much!! This helped me find more and more information and outfit ideas than I ever would have found poking around on google searches. Once again Brock, I really appreciate all the work you do, especially because I understand the struggle (being 5’6″) 😛
This list is great. Awesome inspiration as I put together posts on my new lifestyle site for guys called FeaturingMatt.com. I post a lot of tips and tricks, but I’m still finding my footing. All feedback welcome
Thanks dude! You have saved me a ton of time searching men’s blogs such as these. I have bookmarked your list, as I will frequent these every so often.
Your blog is not so bad as well – keep up the good work!
Matthew Stone says
Thanks TMM, sadly when making a list using only the Alexa popularity score, you can miss some blogs that offer some solid substance that perhaps haven’t got the substantial following thus far.
http://www.capablemen.com comes to mind. They’re a fairly new blog and self proclaimed ‘human Optimisation website’ that seems to be moving away from the typical ‘lad’ narrative. Certainly worth a bookmark.
Thanks for sharing, although I didn’t use Alexa to make this list. I only used Alexa score to decide the order of this list, which isn’t actually very important.
Tim Baker says
I absolutely love http://www.capablemen.com as well. It’s such a refreshing approach to your ordinary superficial men’s lifestyle editorials. I’ve already learnt loads and been referred to such great content because of these guys. It definitely should be included in an updated version of this list!
Mr. Money Mustache should be the top financial blog on the list, hands down, no contest.
What a great list of the best 50 sites for men, I will bookmark this article.
ok just curious….. for the fitness section, why isn’t bodybuilding.com not on the list? It is the #1 fitness site on the interent that includes articles on food, supplements and workouts…. it even has full fitness plans with meal plans built in and a ton more information about a ton of health related things…. Heck it even has stuff for what sugar type is bad for you haha like they go that in depth. I am just super curious about this.
Turns out there are way more than just 50 sites every man should know about. Thanks for adding bodybuilding.com to the list!
As big as it is, bodybuilding.com is still a niche website within the fitness world because not everyone wants to get massively ripped! There’s crossfit, yoga, running… hard to cover everything under one roof.
I’ve recently started my own mens fitness blog at http://www.sometimesitrain.com – perhaps one day it’ll be added in at spot number 51!
but that’s the thing they have crossfit and yoga as well as nutrition and links to other sites aswell, I wouldn’t say its a niche site because it really isn’t.
Great list, if you are looking for more information about beard grooming for the modern Gentleman I like http://www.gentlemansbeardbalm.com
Muted Gear says
Great Article. What about http://muted.com? We’re an excellent men’s lifestyle blog.
Thanks for sharing. There are a few gems in there, and like you said earlier you cant read all of them but the ones you do (Y)
Great list – we definitely respect a lot of these guys. We also have our own men’s lifestyle blog at:
Would be great to know what you think.
I’m surprised that these almost all revolve around fashion. Even most of the “Lifestyle” blogs, like Valet, are fashion blogs. What about blogs that talk about culture, adventure, politics, religion, or any other topics that men are interested in?
I think there are plenty of non-fashion blogs in this list (Art of Manliness, Zen Habits, Mark’s Daily Apple, Get Rich Slowly, etc.), but feel free to list others that you like.
L.L. Check out reniboys.com and let us know what you think.
Harry Rawlins says
Try ‘5 Bad Surfers’
Got to know about a fashion blog for men lately , it got live a couple of weeks ago . Though it has only 2 posts right now , tthey are highly recommendable . Totally worth a look . I highly suggest to have a look at it .
Billy J says

Terry Adams says
Real men grow beards. Real men get beard oil at http://lumberjacksbeardoil.com/
John Robertson says

Thanks for the great list!
Check out the blog I just started and tell me what you think 🙂

Trent Carter says
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!
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.
Javier Ollero says
Great list! I would like to introduce my spanish fashion blog http://www.rayasycuadros.net
I hope you like it!
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.
Marcos silva says
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
#51 – http://www.urbasm.com
I would also vote for Urbasm. Surprised it isn’t mentioned on list. Dig deep, lots of great content.
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.
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.
Beware of Art of Manliness. I encountered an online bully almost immediately after I started posting there.
Damola Ogunleye says
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
Wow, this is quite an impressive list Brock!
Here are two other sites I frequent that your readers might like:
Guys Gab says
Thanks for the love Nic!
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?
Thanks for sharing your impressive list of information.
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.
Bob V 01 says
Another good resource
Bob V 01 says
A blog all males should consult would be:
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!
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.
Do you really think some of these sites suck? Which ones? I’ve never heard of the one you mentioned… will check it out.
Douglas Smythe says
Happy Movember gents and you left out your favorite man blog…http://howtogrowamoustache.com
you are forgiven…no grow and make us proud.
Andy Fogarty says
Solid list. There’s quite a few on here I’ve never heard of. Thanks for sharing, man.
Solid list! I’ve added http://craftedamerican.com/ to my daily blog checks, they focus on made in USA stuff.
Cool site…thanks for adding!
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
I meant sexist against men. Not against women.
Jack, you are a Dumb ass! Look up the word sexist.
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……..
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
You missed a few… I like Dudepins and Gentlemint
Great sites. Not really blogs, though. But definitely cool resources for men. Thanks!
Gabriel Palmer says
When ‘Art of Manliness’ was not #1, I stopped reading the list 😛 Seriously, thanks for putting this list together.
Haha, fair enough! I love AoM. It’s one of the only blogs I actually subscribe to via email and read everyday.
Thank you so much for mentioning the site. I will be linking in an upcoming post!
ALeX c says
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!
Sven Raphael Schneider says
Thanks for mentioning us Brock. I will take a look at your articles in the coming days.
Thanks for the shout-out! Great list with some more fantastic blogs to add to my bookmarks.
Sure thing! Thanks for checking out TMM.
Aww yeahhh I made the top 50! Nice. Thanks for the shout-out.
You’re very welcome!
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.
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!
hey brock, thanks for including my site on your top 50 list! that was super nice of you buddy. i’ll share the news with my readers and hopefully raise some awareness about your site as well (:
i’ll also let my buds over at askandy and realmenrealstyle know they’re on your list.
thanks again and many thanks!
I’m a big fan. Thanks for your comment and for spreading the word!
Thanks for suggesting my blog!
Sure thing, Tim!
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!
Only thing missing was Urbasm
Any suggestions for starting a blog as a man? I’ve found it difficult choosing one niche to stick to and bring to a wide audience.
I actually write about what I’ve learned on this site – http://fulltimeblog.com/
john lichman says
Real men don’t read blogs
Real men have display pictures.
Richard Horowitz says
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.”
Then what is a “REAL MAN” doing here on this blog. and not only is he on the blog he actually has the time to write a negative comment. you are not a real man… you are a “nasty woman”
Real Man says
Excellent reply! He is either a “nasty woman” trying to disempower men who come to this site as a real resource or, he is just a spoiled little guy who doesn’t want to grow up and be a Real Man. He’s a scardy cat!
