Meet Steven of Straight Function

Steven graduated with a bachelors degree in Fashion Marketing, and is currently working for Chicago Scene Magazine and The Tie Bar. Steven’s goal is to help men who want to suit-up and dress the part to be successful. He also wants to be an influence in the men’s fashion world. 

1) What made you want to start your blog and how would you describe your style in 3 words?
What started my blog were the college students in my school. I would always dress in a suit or blazer, of course, but the guys would always ask me why I did it. I told them you never know who you will meet downtown, on the train and life is a giant surprise.

3 words to describe my style: dapper, gentleman and business

2) Who is your fashion inspiration?
Tom Ford style and craftsmanship. How he looks at a suit and sees a blank canvas.

3) What’s the one wardrobe essential you cannot live without?
I would say a “Tie Bar”. I am always wearing a tie from the Tie Bar because it keeps my tie straight all hours of the day.

4) What is your favorite thing about blogging?
I would say my favorite is the responses I get back, the feedback from people telling me I did a great job is super rewarding. It’s a great feeling when I know that someone or my audience is inspired by the looks I created; it makes me so humble about growing my blog.

5) What is a quick fashion tip or advice for men?
Never feel over-dressed, if you feel like wearing a shirt and tie everyday, go for it. I would like every gent to be in a suit.

6) Do you have any favorite stores or brands?
Zara, Topman, The Tie Bar & Combat Gent

7) What would you say is your favorite fall/winter trend?
A nice over coat is something every gent needs to keep his eyes for this winter. Something simple but it keeps your suit looking nice. Also I see more men wearing scarves more.

I couldn’t agree more, men should always be in suits, well said Steven! Steven is the first menswear blogger (that I am aware of?) in my city, and I am super impressed, we definitely need more menswear bloggers in Chicago! Come on men! 🙂
