Savage Style

After last week's savage style, it seemed only fitting to feature a men's fashion blogger this week. Sadly, as with many aspects of fashion, the blogs dedicated to women's fashion outnumber those created by men and more so, featuring men's fashion. But boy oh boy, when the guys step up to the plate they hit a home run.

Meet Izzy Tuason, the creator of "The Dandy Project". His blog is unique not only in that it highlights trends in men's fashion, but that he recreates the runway looks for less by way of DIY.

In addition to DIY projects, the Filipino native highlights men's fashion from his crafty, creative viewpoint. Taking his love of fashion and pairing it with his DIY creations, the current Boston University grad student can be seen around wearing looks that are savage in style to say the least:
