Hello and welcome to Articles of Style. I'm Dan Trepanier, founder and CEO.
I know that finding clothing that fits well and is made to last can be difficult.
There's too many new trends, cheap brands and social media “influencers” bombarding you with new things every day.
Because of this, most people accumulate a closet full of random clothing that doesn’t make sense for them. They end up wearing the same few pieces over and over again while 90% of their clothing collects dust in the back of their closet.
If this is you, don’t worry, you are not alone. Just about everybody has this problem. And I was this way, too.
I got tired of chasing trends, buying fast-fashion and accumulating a bunch of cheap crap that didn’t work for me. I found it frustrating, defeating and wasteful. So I made it my life’s mission to find a better way, and I went to work.
I studied psychology at Columbia university and menswear design at the Fashion Institute of Technology, apprenticed with a bespoke tailor in NYC for 7 years and tested clothing from just about every brand in the business. I wrote everything I learned on my blog, which grew to have millions of readers.
In 2009 I was named “Best Dressed Man in America” by Esquire magazine. Through my blog I started working one-on-one with people from all over the world to help them refine their style and build versatile, long-lasting wardrobes.
What I realized is that most people have no plan for their wardrobe. They buy randomly and impulsively.
This is why I created Articles of Style.
At AOS we work with you one-on-one to make a plan for your wardrobe. This involves 1) choosing the right colors, fabrics and designs for you and your lifestyle 2) developing a bespoke fit that is most flattering for your body and 3) delivering hand-crafted garments that are timeless and built to last.
I break-down the most important principles to build a great wardrobe in my new e-book 10 Rules for Style which you can download for free here.
I've worked with men (and women) in just about every industry; corporate professionals, entrepreneurs, small business owners, political leaders, doctors, lawyers, entertainers, athletes...you name it.
I've personally seen the life-changing effect that a great wardrobe can have. I’ve helped people get raises and promotions, meet their future wives, become a leader in their social circles and significantly improve their confidence to live their best life.
So if you're looking to improve your style and build a great wardrobe, you've come to the right place!
I'd love to meet you and see if I can help. You can start by browsing our online shop and booking a free zoom consultation with me.
I look forward to working with you!
Yours in style,

Founder & CEO
Dan Trepanier was born on a farm in a small rural town called St. Joachim in Ontario, Canada. He was recruited to play NCAA basketball at Columbia University in New York City, where he fell in love with style and began writing about his experiences as an “outsider” infiltrating the fashion industry.
In his senior year, while completing his degree in psychology, he was named “America’s Best Dressed Man” by Esquire magazine. He then earned a degree in menswear design from the Fashion Institute of Technology, and went on to train for many years with a prominent bespoke tailor in New York City.
After almost a decade of working with customers in-person in NYC Dan combined his experience in menswear design and bespoke tailoring with his passion for writing and teaching men how to dress for success - and he created Articles of Style.
Today Dan lives in Toronto with his wife Karyn and their daughter Sofia. When he’s not designing custom wardrobes, he can be found on the local basketball courts showing these youngsters that he can still really hoop.
Morgane was born in France and raised in both Paris and East Sussex, England. Her fascination for Menswear started at a young age with an admiration for her fathers’ wardrobe of corduroy suits and classic newsboy caps. She went on to study Fashion Design at Central Saint Martins in London and got inspired in the streets of Saville Row and Carnaby street where she first interned, before moving to Paris where she trained as a pattern cutter and tailor.
Nikki grew up in central LA and got her first introduction to menswear by chance when her parents caught an Uber ride with a bespoke business owner in DTLA. She worked there for almost two years, learning the basics of entrepreneurship, customer relations, and design. In 2019, she went on to take a summer abroad in London to learn the fundamentals of pattern drafting on Savile Row. Now currently studying at Smith College in Massachusetts, she’s taken a position on our team, coordinating customer service operations as well as helping develop our women’s collection.
Wes was born and raised on the lower east side of NYC. His first job was shining shoes as a boy, where he observed how city gentlemen dressed and learned the fundamentals of style. From there he always had a fascination with menswear.
He went on to study Business Management at Brooklyn College and in 2012 he crossed paths with Dan and they hit it off immediately. He became an integral part of "The Style Blogger" (the early days of AOS) and has created some of our most iconic looks. He is widely regarded as one of the most stylish people in the industry, if not the world.
Today Wes manages the AOS blog and social media accounts, in addition to personal styling for men (and women) in NYC. In his free time he is a basketball junkie, a power lifter and a connoisseur of Brooklyn nightlife.
