Hello and welcome to Articles of Style.
I'm Dan Trepanier, founder and CEO.
In 2009 I was named “Best Dressed Man in America” by Esquire magazine and for the next 10 years I apprenticed with the premier bespoke tailor in New York City; fitting customers of all shapes and sizes and designing their wardrobes from top to bottom.
Word got out (thanks in part to my popular menswear blog) and people started traveling from all over the world to get styled and fitted by me in New York City. That's when I realized that most people don't have access to an experienced stylist or a reliable tailor in their local market.
This is why I created Articles of Style.
I've worked with CEOs, political leaders, professional athletes, famous movie stars, you name it. I have customers in 30+ countries around the world (see our reviews) and we've been featured in GQ, Esquire, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Today Show and hundreds of other publications.
I've personally seen the life-changing effect that a custom wardrobe can have. I’ve helped people get raises and promotions, meet their future partners, become a leader in their social circles and significantly improve their overall confidence.
In my book 10 Rules for Style (which you download for free), I break-down the philosophies I use with our customers to help them dress for success and invest in versatile wardrobes that will last the test of time.
So if you're interested in improving your style and upgrading your wardrobe - you've come to the right place!
If you need some help putting together a capsule wardrobe, book an appointment with me.
I look forward to helping you build your dream wardrobe.
Yours in style,

Dan Trepanier was born on a farm in the small rural town of St. Joachim 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 with the premiere 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 meeting with customers from all over the world on Zoom, 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.
