I don’t think I’ve ever had an about me section, so I guess this blog post is the first step in the process of giving my blog a more human touch, something I’ve wanted to do for a while now.

I started Simple Guy Style around four years ago on Tumblr, with the name of Just a Simple Guy. At first I used it as a way to save content I found on the internet that inspired me. I’ve always had an interest in fashion (specially menswear), and on many occasions you might have heard me say that I think fashion is something that is on everyone’s reach. My view of fashion has little to do with the flamboyant and exotic pieces we often see on runways, some of which oftentimes are tacky and ridiculous. On the contrary, I believe in fashion for the everyday man, one whom doesn’t need a lot to look his best.

For years, I believed that running the blog anonymously was the best way to do it. As I started getting more into it and deciding to share more content that consisted on my original views and personal experiences, I finally realized that it was time to give the blog a face and tell my audience about who I am and where I come from. Well, this is it. My name is Alan. I’m a 24 year old simple guy from Mexico who has a voice that wants to be heard.

I would like to thank my friend Joel Isaac for being a part of this important moment on the blog. He’s a very talented artist and I’m very grateful to him for helping me finally give my blog a face.

If you’ve stuck with me these past few years, thank you and I hope you’ve enjoyed the ride. There’s certainly been many ups and downs, but I’m very happy for the way things have turned out. If you’re new here, thank you so very much for taking the time to check out my work. Truth is, your timing is perfect; the best things for SGS are just about to come.

Nice to meet you!
