You never know when a partner in crime will show up, it might be at a seminar when two college acquaintances stumble upon one another, which is the exact scenario with Anderson Munro and Joe Baron.

From doing that and learning the hard way on trying to bring greatness to the world, we decided to combine forces to share the tips we have to offer, review the good and bad of fashion, as well as the appreciation for all art forms. So take a ride with us as we grow this collective from the New York/New Jersey area to your computer screen.
