Back when we covered the Top Australian Men’s Fashion Blogs, it turned out to be one of our most popular posts. It tells us there’s a real thirst for great online fashion blogs and content targeted at men with a taste for style. But what about the non-Aussie nations? We know they’ve got plenty to offer so we thought we’d share the love by covering some of our favourites in the Top 30 UK Men’s Fashion Blogs.
Largely due to the UK weather, these lads bring a very different look to the table versus many of the Aussie blogs we previously covered. Think layering, warm winter jackets and clothes for all climates. So without further adieu here are the UK bloggers making a splash both in their home-towns and internationally.

Men’s Flair is more a magazine than a blog and is ideal for men with a flair for style and interests beyond fleeting looks of the season.

It is all about style that is real, relevant and unpretentious.
