If you haven’t yet read it, their manifesto is quite enjoyable:
We believe that a man’s style is something that derives from his own personality, not from ephemeral “trends”.
We enjoy opinionated men. Men with a sense of purpose and a soul. Smart, intelligent and creative; men with ideas and ideology. Men who are their own men, who don’t fit others’ standards.
We don’t believe in negativity.
We believe in revolution.
