The Grungy Gentleman. The name itself tells you this is not your typical clothing site. On the contrary, it turns convention on its head. The site itself is set up multimedia style, offering all things modern and unique from the categories you would expect from a lifestyle site. From articles on the latest designer runway show to a 101 on Scotch recipes to tickle any set of taste buds.
It’s hard enough trying to find and stay on top of trends and fashion let alone what’s happening with housing, gadgets, food, restaurants etc. and the list goes on. It’s simply exhausting! Here is a source that give a one-stop-shop feel with luxury. As I walk through the site I am taken on an exciting sensory ride – Grungy TV grabs my attention and I’m hooked! Looking through the video library I’m suddenly made aware that this is more than just your typical hip hop website with a few dashes of designer duds and lifestyle sprinkled throughout. Its chic, its hip hop, its style, its unconventional.
What swayed my opinion the most was the riveting interview with Bill Russell, Boston Celtics legend. The interview was conducted by Bill Simmons and was not only informative and easy to follow for someone like myself, whose knowledge of all things basketball is relatively limited. I found it entertaining and informative learning about the biography. It gave me the feeling that this was not just a style site, it truly was a lifestyle site, offering something meaty that loyal followers of the brand could engage with.
We’ve all wondered about the life of the rich and famous; what they eat and drink, wondering if we will ever reach a point like that in our lives where we would live so indulgently; but have you ever wondered what the trendy eat? Well look no further. The food and travel section of this site takes you on a gastro-fantasy ride of what’s hot in various cities across the country. I think my favourite had to me the lobster mac & cheese and it doesn’t end there.
So you’re a Grungy Gentleman, and you’re in the mood to switch up your game in the cocktail department but dread the thought of leaving it to the bartender at your local hot spot is worse. Well clearly the Grungy Gent looks no further than the handy Food+Travel section where he finds an write up or two on the latest vintage whatever for the modern man. Problem solved, bottoms up.
Blurbs on trendy hot spots from Miami to NYC are of course sprinkled throughout the section to inspire you to dream big and live the lavish lifestyle seen in these glossy images. There is no lack of content here, it’s loaded with article after article of choice words spoken true of the lifestyle of the maybe-not-so-rich and trendy.

Gadgets and Tech
I have to say the Grungy Gentleman site has enough and more content for the gent who is looking to stay in the loop with all things current and interesting. However, like the sports section of the site I automatically assume this section would hold nothing really of interest for me being that I’m a fashion girl! What would content on gadgets and technology have to keep me interested? I eat my words happily… first off I scan through the page looking for anything that may catch my eye, maybe a hot buzz word or even a colour scheme to make my darting eyes stop. Lo and behold my eyes didn’t go far before they landed on the modelling icon Naomi Campbell posing with the latest Beats by Dre earphones, YES! A great behind the scenes video of the making of the commercial and photo shoot was the cherry on that sundae article. #somethingforeveryone
So I feel like I probably should have mentioned the Bill Russell thing here, but trust me when I say that if I was a Grungy Gent sports fan looking for the latest in whatever sport, I would find no lack of information to satisfy my sport-centric needs.
Now here is a section I could sink my teeth in to. The diversity of write ups on this site was incredible. I got to read everything from art gallery events to the hottest concerts and festivals. Don’t be fooled, this section has its fair share of fashion and celebrity entertainment, but its just not the same jive you’ve read a hundred times on entertainment sites and TV shows already this week. These article ar as interesting as they are conversation starters that will keep you seeming in the loop and knowledgeable all at the same time.
So when it comes to style and fashion, at first glance, the site looks as though it will be skewed in towards the hip hop side of things and unless your personal style calls for such, you won’t find much here. You would be remissed to not view the collection of content in this section of the site with all its exposure for the not so popular, casual and even something for the suits! Once again they hit the nail on the head with the plethora of style options for men of all styles.
Men looking to keep their finger on the pulse of luxury lifestyle by design, look no further. Whether you live this lifestyle already or it’s something you aspire to Grungy Gentleman is sure to impress and suck you in to their world.
