Here I discuss the realities of what it means to be a menswear blogger that might exchange goods/services and/or money for publicized content. There is a fine line between being a trusted expert and a shill. I lay out my opinions on how one can trust the expert when some ideas might lead to the contrary. At the end of the day, it is all about trust and reading the signs of someone that truly cares and someone that just does it to make money without the integrity side of it.
I realize it can be hard to always know. For example, I have advertisers that I personally wouldn’t wear. But I either am a friend of the owner and therefore believe in the individual. know the quality is there but its target market is not me. But as I believe in the person behind the brand will spread their shoes as there are customers out there happy to have their shoes.
