While there are countless fashion blogs for women, men have had to rely on magazines, the internet and well, The Directory. But that’s slowly changing as some new and not so new entrants in the blogosphere are here to give fashionable men the news, tips, advice and reviews they need to stay stylish. The Directory scours the internet to pick the most interesting ones for you to bookmark.

Be prepared to be green with envy – Kieren Kanda celebrated his eighteenth birthday at the Moschino S/S 13 preview, yes that’s right eighteenth. However he isn’t your average teenager, this ashen blonde blogger, nurtures dreams of becoming a stylist and wants an Hermes belt or a YSL weekend bag for Christmas,

His blog gives you an insider perspective on some of Dubai’s hottest events and highlights upcoming designers and models.

A watch is a staple of every outfit, be it for a casual loafers and tee look or for a suited up one. And Adnan Arif serves the latest news, trends and products from the wristwatch industry in bite size morsels. Who knew that this little accessory had so much going on for it – there are sci-fi inspired ones and a flying panda watch.

Christian Kachacha is everywhere: checking out the latest trends, new products, showing us how to style show-stopper looks and even features a round up on the best men’s magazines and websites. We love the easy, pictorial design of the site – allows us to drool over the hottest new shirt, loafers that’s going on our wish list and the laptop bag we just must have all at once.

High end wardrobe staples paired with seasonal high street trends best describes Ushi Sato’s outfit of the day posts. Think Dolce & Gabbana shirts and vintage Giorgio Armani sunnies paired with Zara slacks and Maison Martin Margiela for H&M sneakers. Thumbs up for ideas on how to dress for swanky Dubai events or for just a day of coffee and window shopping with friends.

Always out and about we get a sneak peak at Sato’s busy social calendar through his blog.

“I aim to show people how you can accessorise the traditional kandoura, give them mix and match ideas by posting pictures of my outfits and I also post lifestyle, health and fitness tips and of course celebrity news,” says Hatem Al Akeel, designer of the kandoura label Toby and the brainchild of this blog, all in Arabic.

We love that it’s all under one roof. Fingers crossed for an English edition soon.
