The very name of Andrew Chipman's fashion blog, Pulling Teeth, may send shivers through your molars, but once you get past that you're in for a treat. No, not a lollipop, something even better. Expect a men's fashion blogger who's savage style is conveyed through DIY projects, thrift store finds and the occasional piece from one of his favorite designers, Jeremy Scott.

Recently, the Winnipeg, Manitoba (Canada) native competed for the chance to be H&M's MMVA Blogger and although he did not win, it gave Chipman a chance to put into words his blog's mission and inspiration:
"Throughout the years my style and taste has evolved, but my mission for my blog has stayed the same; to give an original menswear point of view and to always be true to myself. I do so by showcasing personal outfit posts, step-by-step DIY projects, and featuring designers and companies I really love. Blogging has given me the opportunity to talk with people who I would never have the chance to meet otherwise. Through Blogger, Twitter, and Facebook I've been able to chat with other bloggers and designers that I really look up to. I think music, fashion, pop culture, and art all play a large role in who I am."

Chipman may be Canadian but he most certainly embodies the American motto adapted for all Shopping Savages: 'that fashion bloggers are endowed by their own creations with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of fashions that bring Happiness.'
