We pay tribute to our favourite male fashion and lifestyle blogs in the North East. Now, I know we’re used to seeing most male fashion blogs down South, but our favourites are just as good- and they’re from Newcastle- what more could we want?
Take a look at what they have to say about themselves and how they came to start their fabulous blogs.
Michael 84 is a men’s fashion, lifestyle and music blog based in Newcastle, created by Michael Adams. Michael tells us a little bit about himself and his reasons for starting his blog.
“I am Michael, from Newcastle, and founded my blog Michael 84 a couple of years ago. I have always enjoyed creating websites and other online ventures, so having a blog is something which I’ve progressed into over the years. I actually started my first blog over 10 years ago, before they were trendy on the back of a music forum I used to run; I was always too busy for it and had other commitments and did not know what direction I wanted to take it in so it faded out.”
“A few years ago, after I was reading a lot of blogs, I decided I would give it a proper go and just blog about the things I like with the idea that other people would too, and so would hopefully read it and relate to it. I was buying quite a lot of clothing and getting more into high street and streetwear and finding a bigger passion for it as well as the typical men’s lifestyle kind of things, so Michael 84 was my place to showcase it.”

GianniC is a men’s lifestyle, skincare and grooming blog based in Newcastle, created by Gianni Casagrande. Below, Gianni introduces himself and tell us his reasons for starting his blog.
“My name is Gianni and I write a little blog about lifestyle, skincare and grooming. If this is the kind of thing you’re into then my blog might be just the one for you. I’m a young, brother, friend, photographer, marketing student, waiter, blogger, crazy teen living in North East England.”
“I started my blog as my little space on the internet that I could write about products I bought and liked. I mainly blog about skincare/grooming and health products, giving my readers tried, tested and most importantly, honest reviews! However, I love to throw a lifestyle or photography post in there too… hoping to inspire and influence.”
Here at Fashion North, we absolutely love the fact that GianniC is a men’s skincare blog- such an amazing idea for males. Go and pay Gianni’s amazing blog a visit at: www.giannic.co.uk.
N.E. BOY is a men’s fashion, lifestyle and art and design blog based in Newcastle, created by Nick Lau. Read Nick’s reasons for starting his blog and a little introduction about himself.
“My name is Nick, and I’m 28-years-old from the North East. I have a degree in Automotive Design and I am inspired by all things design! I’m the founder of and currently run www.heroandcape.com, a creative streetwear label.”
“I started the N.E.Boy blog purely as a hobby. I’ve seen how influential and inspiring female fashion bloggers can be and I wanted to try and do my part for the male blog readers. I think it can be difficult sometimes to find inspiration when it comes to styling and it’s a massive bonus to have a resource like fashion blogs and websites to get ideas.”
Well Nick, we think you’re doing a fantastic job for the male blog readers! Check out Nick’s wonderful blog here: www.ne-boy.blogspot.co.uk.
