A True Birchbox Man: Dan Chizzoniti

We’ve known Dan Chizzoniti for a while, thanks to his impressive menswear blog Real Guys Wear Ties. Learn more about this Birchbox subscriber plus his unique style and inspirations.

BB Man: How would you describe your style?

Dan: My style is "classic with a twist." I like to take classically preppy looks and add color, prints, and texture. It shows my personality while giving a fun spin on menswear.

BB Man: Who would you say is your style icon?

Dan: Brad Goreski is my style icon. I love his punch of loud color yet ability to muster a classic look at the same time.

BB Man: How do you get your wardrobe ready for spring?

Dan: To get my wardrobe ready for any season, I look at current trends. Not to abide by them, but to see if I can include some into my personal style. It's all about making it your own.

BB Man: This month we're celebrating great design. What's one piece of design you admire for great form and function?

Dan: I just started to sport a colorful watch by Q&Q. It's sleek and bright yet it's completely solar-powered. Great for the environment and great for style.

BB Man: What do you do for a living, and how does that influence your grooming routine?

Dan: I'm a social media strategist so I spend all my time trolling the Internet. I start my day early so I split my routine between morning and night. I use the night to prep and the morning to perfect.

BB Man: You have a great blog! Where do you find the inspiration?

Dan: I find inspiration from everyone and everywhere—from people on the street to fellow bloggers. If I like a way they put together a look, I might try and recreate it in my style. I'm all about personalization.

BB Man: How do you spend your spare time?

Dan: Wait, there's such thing as spare time? Just kidding, but you will find me surrounded my besties enjoying a bottomless brunch (or, drunch as we like to call it). I'm also in a kickball league which is beyond fun.

BB Man: What is your favorite thing that you’re received in your Birchbox?

Dan: I recently received English Laundry 3-in-1 and I'm addicted. I actually used it all up and got another. I also love the Eshu Shaving Gel (which is part of the brand's Road Warrior Travel Pack). I received the gel in a box years ago and I've kept it in my routine.
