What Is Effortless Gent?

by   |  in

Simple, foundational clothing. An interchangeable, lean wardrobe. Practical outfits. Smart, sharp style with the flexibility to “make it fashion”.

Less effort getting dressed. A more cohesive wardrobe.

This is what Effortless Gent is all about.

Our goal is to create content that helps the regular guy with little to no style experience build a lean wardrobe filled with great pieces that all go with each other.

This makes getting dressed every day simple and straight-forward.

A basic, versatile wardrobe is the goal for some guys, while for others, it’s just the starting point.

Because of this, we also write articles about taking your personal style to the next level.

Hey Gents! I started Effortless Gent waaay back in 2009, when I was in my mid-twenties and wanted a place on the web where I could answer style questions I got from my friends… learn more →

Does any of this sound familiar?

  • You’re smart, successful, and confident… but that doesn’t always show in the way you dress
  • You’re interested in dressing well and looking good, but you don’t want to spend too much time thinking about it
  • You notice when other guys are sharply dressed, but you can’t quite put your finger on what makes them look sharp, while your outfits fall flat

If so, well, you’ve come to the right place.

There’s a good chance you have an idea about how to dress well. But it’s not second nature.

You’re not looking to be some style expert.

You want to learn just enough so you feel confident in your clothes and know how to look sharp… whether you’re headed to a coffee shop with a friend, or into your boss’ office to ask for a promotion.

EG has helped me transform my overcrowded wardrobe crammed full of baggy dad jeans, hoodies and trainers, into a well organized minimalist wardrobe full of sharp, versatile pieces. The new, more stylish me now gets better service in shops and bars, and I find that some of my favorite pieces get me the most compliments. So cheers Barron, I can’t thank you enough.
