There’s a lot of Internet out there. Most of it’s terrible. Some of it’s ok. And a fraction of it is actually good. It seems every site throws that email sign-up box at you before you can say “just looking.” So being judicious with your @ dot com is a wise move which we fully support. That’s why we trudged through the nonsense and came up with ten email newsletters worthy of your inbox — all stemming from that good part of the Internet.
Take email back to a time when it was useful. Something you actually wanted. Instead of just performing daily sweeps to the trash. Subscribe to these email newsletters and learn new facts, find good stuff to read, up your style, or figure out what’s for dinner. When you open your inbox you’ll actually enjoy what you see.
A good and simple roundup for for men on the daily. Each issue features some variation of what to wear, who to follow, plus something to hear and read. Scroll through a few Instagrammers worth checking out, ogle a style/gear item or two, then have a listen at a handpicked song before following an outbound link to read a browse-worthy article from around the web. – Subscribe
