Just over a month ago, I published the video we made for Zegna's Italian Bergamot fragrance. It was the biggest project I've been involved with so far, yet one of the most exciting and rewarding. We shot the entire video over the course of about 5 hours, which isn't a whole lot of time when you're talking about that kind of production. Credit that to the amazing team we had on hand that day. As always, Rob was around helping out with whatever needed helping with, and was also able to capture some great behind the scenes shots. Here are some of my favorites. Enjoy.

Newsletter subscribers have already gotten wind of this, but it's time I mention an exciting collaboration coming up with Zegna. We're working on a video to capture the essence of Zegna's Essenze Fragrance Collection, which we're actually shooting today. I've written before about the power scents have to transport you to another time and place. And this theme is central to the video's storyline. Part of the lead up to today's shoot was a fitting at Zegna's 5th Avenue store. I'm not going to lie—it was a pretty amazing experience. Here are some photos from that day.

To celebrate the blog turning one—the very first post went live a year ago last Monday—I thought it would be fun to share a few of the photos that were never published. I asked Rob to dig through the archives and come up with some of his favorite shots that didn't make it onto the blog. A few just didn't make the cut, some are interesting behind the scenes shots or Rob indulging his artistic side, and a couple are, well, just funny. There's a story behind every photo, however, and I hope you enjoy them. Men's Style Blog Menswear Fashion Grooming He Spoke Style VIEW MORE ▶︎
I had a great time shooting my first video a few weeks ago. If you haven't had a chance to see it yet, definitely check it out as my friend Jared did an absolutely amazing job. Rob was also on the scene not only helping out with the production and making a cameo in the video, but also to capture a few behind the scenes photos from the shoot. Being a professional musician and former concert organizer, I'm no stranger to what goes into making something like this happen, but the professionalism and abilities of my colleagues never cease to amaze me. I hope you enjoy this small behind the scenes glimpse into how we made the video. Men's Style Fashion Blog - He Spoke Style VIEW MORE ▶︎
