15 Podcasts for Fans of Men’s Fashion

Gear patrol

There aren’t a ton of fashion podcasts out there. There aren’t as many about style and culture around it as there are about crime or politics. And while, sure, those are nice to run away or do the exact opposite (stay informed), sometimes podcasts with more niche focus prove more fun, with their innate ability to change the way you look at that jacket. you own, which was probably made overseas, or teach you how COVID is changing the way e-commerce works.

Conversely, some of these podcasts only briefly mention fashion and focus – using that term loosely as many of them favor the flow of consciousness over structure – on culture in general. But that makes them, by definition, attractive to more people. You will surely find one that piques your interest, especially if you are a fan of the masculine style.

Articles of interest

A 12-part subset of the 99% Invisible podcast, Articles of Interest addresses one topic at a time. An episode might take jeans, for example, and analyze the tendency to wear them even when they are super consumed. “You can learn a lot by looking at an old pair of blue jeans” is not just a line in the show’s notes, but the biggest theme of the entire episode. Other episodes focus on imitations, suits, diamonds and pockets, just to name a few.

Episodes range from history lessons about the inventor of the wedding dress, Amsale Aberra, to breakdowns of defunct black fashion magazines that not many are familiar with.

Company lunch

Even though it looks like corporate lunch is currently on a temporary hiatus, you can still access its 130+ episodes on your favorite streaming platform. Episodes are more streams of consciousness than structured interviews as episodes are usually a conversation between three GQ editors. If you have the necessary context, which means you know the designers and which brands they work for, their speeches are interesting and insightful.

How long gone

How Long Gone is by no means a menswear podcast, but the two hosts just took a Woolrich-sponsored tour. And one of them, Chris Black, has contributed style and travel articles to GQ, Vanity Fair, Vogue, New York Magazine Architectural Digest, and more. The episodes are long and sometimes anything but lucid, but the two form a fun couple. Their pop culture renditions hit hard, but the lighthearted humor about Drake’s love of gloves, for example, reinforces the vibe.

Adaptations from launch

Throwing Fits applies his fashion friar energy, offering reactions, fit checks and interviews in each two-hour episode. There are clear talking points within each, but whether the hosts stick to it depends on the day. But that means the episodes cover a lot of ground and pull a lot out of their hosts.
