IDRIS BALOGUN IN NEW YORK
In a new series of profiles, I’m focusing on capturing the man on the street in a single portrait and a conversation. This week, I’m excited to have finally met that man on the cover of the Men In This Town book. I was always a bit hesitant about putting somebody on the cover but I felt that the photo of Idris really epitomized what the state of menswear is like at this moment in time. To say the least, I’m glad he’s happy about it, listen to out conversation below.

AVAILABLE TODAY WORLDWIDE
Exactly a year ago today I tweeted my soon to be publisher with the idea of a Men In This Town book. After several months of flying around the world taking pictures and countless hours bringing it all together, my book is now available in bookstores worldwide and online.
The book is a collection of my favourite street style photos from London, Tokyo, Sydney, Milan and New York with about three quarters of the photos never posted online. It also includes five profiles with inspiring men around the world, including Patrick Johnson, Alessandro Squarzi, Dan Rookwood, Taisuke Nakamuro and Jeffrey Costello and Robert Tagliapietra.
If you’re a fan of the blog, I hope you’ll be a fan of the book! Thank you for all your support, it means the world. I hope you enjoy it.
