Meet Michael: A Fashion Inspiration on Instagram

Michael of Micsco1st

Manly Mondays are back, with a new weekly series, featuring my favorite Men Bloggers from all across the globe.  Each Monday, you’ll get the inside scoop on the different trends, tips, and of course the man behind his blog.   If you are interested in being featured in my Manly Monday’s series, please email me fancynancista@gmail.com. |


I found Michael on Instagram, and was fascinated with his Instagram feed. There are only some dedicated people out there who actually take time to make the perfect feed; Michael is one of them. His Instagram style is very monochrome, minimal, and classic.

1) What made you want to start your blog/Instagram and how would you describe your style in 3 words?
My girlfriend Jony is a blogger.  The past two years, she motivated me to start an Instagram account containing fashion related pictures where IG'ers can find my personal style.  I gave it a shot and started this journey in January with just 40 followers or may be less.

I would describe my style: clean, casual, and smart.

2) Who is your fashion inspiration?
The entire Instagram community delivers me tons of inspiration.  Many Instagrammers and other people in the industry are a source of inspiration.  One of them is Dany Dos Santos.  He has so much sense of style.  This man takes fashion very seriously and is setting the bars very high.  His innovative perspective on fashion is shown in his feed on Instagram.  Wide smart pants, short-sleeved sweat pants.. Infinite possibilities.

3) What's the one wardrobe essential you can't live without?
Smart pants.  Initially this can be worn with formal pieces, but I wear this along sneakers and similar casual items.  Very versatile!

4) What is your more favorite thing about blogging/instagramming?
Exploring the Instagram community, gaining inspiration from other instagrammers and creating an outfit.  I also like to create an outfitgrid or objectsgrid.

5) What is a quick fashion tip or advice for men?
Try to build a collection, which contains basics to create a lot of outfit possibilities and trend stuff to stay up to date.  Always keep your wardrobe balanced.

6) Do you have any favorite stores or brands?
Adidas, Nike, COS, Samsoe Samsoe and AllSaints.
