Ardi Astarto was recruited as a suit specialist at Ben Sherman’s flagship Sydney store before coming on board to expand renowned British tailoring/menswear company T.M. Lewin onto Australian shores. In 2012 he was awarded the Australian Style Institute’s Fire Starter Award for the rapid growth and expansion of his fashion blog: The Gentry Man. Delivering weekly articles on menswear and lifestyle, while dropping in the odd occasional hip-hop/pop culture reference, The Gentry Man has expanded not only as a fashion blog but as a personal styling experience. We reached out to Ardi to find out where he likes to wind down when he’s not making the world a more glamorous place!
Ronnie was born and raised in the “windy city” of, Chicago, Illinois (a city that will always have his heart). It wasn’t until the 6th grade that he began to realize that he was different. Some of the older kids would knock him to the ground during recess and call him gay, but he didn’t really understand what that meant. All Ronnie knew, was that being different was bad because it caused him to get beat up after class and to live in fear of what was around every corner. It wasn’t until he was 15 years old that his secret was released – his Mom caught him kissing his first BF in the backyard. While it wasn’t his ideal way of coming out, he felt a certain weight lifted off his shoulders and a freedom to simply be who he was without lying anymore. Thankfully, Ronnie’s parents have been a great source of support and empowerment over the years.
As longtime fans of good booze, good eats, and great deals, Jennie & Jessica have always found Happy Hour to be the best dining-out meal of the day! “We love a nice deal so when Happy Hour is up at one spot, we’ll sometimes keep the tour moving to the next. It takes a lot of work to find the best Happy Hours in Los Angeles, so when a friend suggested that we share our findings with the world, we saw a grand opportunity and created TheHappyHourTour.com. Though some may call us boozehounds or lushes, we like to consider ourselves important scientific researchers – committed to finding the perfect 5-Martini-rated Happy Hours.” Check out some of their favorite places, and make a street of your own via Posse.com or our mobile app!
