Christian Sibole, your best-dressed Twin Citian

Best local fashion blogs

Men’s style has experienced something of a rebirth in the Twin Cities, with stores like MartinPatrick3, BlackBlue and Arrow offering a much-needed alternative to mall shopping. Online, this revival was signaled with the launch of MPLSTYLE (www.mplstyle.com) two years ago. Founded by Minneapolis-via-New York model, choreographer and fashion editor John-Mark and Minneapolis-based photographer Drew Krason, the site has been a consistent source for original content, with editorial shoots featuring stylish guys from the Twin Cities, plus style-centric music coverage, interviews and features with a local flavor.
