Hey, Gents!


Welcome to another Sunday Shop update.

If you’re new around here, Sunday Shop is a semi-regular (but not really) weekend update where I talk a bit about the small business side of EG. I also use this time to mention any product specials or sweet deals I’ve come across.

Other than being heads-down on the reopening of Cladright this Tuesday (check out last week’s post for more info), I was one of several entrepreneurs featured in my friend Hilary Rushford’s (of Dean Street Society) new book, tribe, and toolkit, The 4-Part Entrepreneur Cocktail.

Based on the emails I’ve received, I know there are several of you out there curious about the behind-the-scenes stuff when it comes to running EG, the business.

In case you didn’t know, this site wasn’t always my main gig. I started EG on the side while working full time at my day job.

Nowadays, I’m happy and blessed to be able to serve you guys full time, writing articles and creating eGuides and courses that take you closer to that well-dressed guy you aspire to be.

Hilary and I talk about all that, plus you get to hear from other small business owners, online entrepreneurs, and digital creators about how they do it. (You also get a self-guided eBook, workbook, and access to a private forum to chat with others on the same journey as you.)


It’s almost a new year.

If you’ve ever thought about starting a business on the side that you hope will eventually support you full time, or just want to create something that you love, are proud of, and that can produce a healthy supplemental income, what better time than right now?

Get a head start on that resolution, and equip yourself with the tools to make sure you stick to it.

Check out The 4-Part Entrepreneur Cocktail here.

By the way, I’m an affiliate for this program, which means Hilary gives me a little coin if you decide to join her tribe. While that’s cool and all, I truly believe in her message and vision, and if this toolkit helps even just one of you start a blog or business that you’ve been meaning to start forever, then I couldn’t be happier.

PS: Hilary and I may or may not have karaoke’d to a little Kanye somewhere in our interview.

Hope you’re having a great weekend! Till next time.

    Baron, I started reading your site about 6 months ago and I feel like in that time you’ve gone from providing really helpful content to just talking about yourself. I’m glad you’re able to make a living by doing this, but I don’t come to your site to read about you, your business accomplishments, or to keep up with what’s happening on your website. I come to read about menswear. I know this sounds kinda harsh, I’m not trying to be mean. Mostly I’m writing this to say that you’re about to lose me, and rather than just bailing, I thought I’d say something first. Basically what I’m saying is that in the time I’ve been reading your site, you’ve provided content less-frequently, and it’s mostly self-referential. Feel free to delete this post. FWIW,

      Sorry you feel that way. I try to balance a bit of both (97% style-related content, of course, with some free, some premium), and I like to provide a bit of insight into the business side since I’ve gotten a few emails / requests asking about it.

      Plus, with over 200+ articles in the archives, I feel it’s important to add a human element once in a while. I’m not a menswear tips drone, and I feel that if I go on and on and on like some other sites out there, people will forget there’s a human behind their screen, creating stuff for them.

      On the other hand, this is all a big experiment and I’m constantly feeling out what’s valuable to people and what isn’t. Thanks for the feedback. If the site no longer interests you, you’re welcome to explore elsewhere. It’s a wide, wide internet out there. 🙂
