I originally partnered with Brian at @40_Something_Style because he is an expert creator and I was looking to add some quality creative photos for a campaign. I have had so much fun working with and learning from him. Brian has produced unbelievable photos, introduced me to other great influencers, coached me on techniques and tactics, and has been very supportive of my small business.

My business is thankful to have Brian on the team, and I am thankful to have him as a new friend. If you are looking for a partnership @40_Something_Style is the guy to call (or DM!).

Having worked with Brian for a number of months, I can truly say that he is one of the most professional and genuine influencers in the menswear space. I’m very glad that we have been able to partner with him, since his honest nature, gentlemanly style and overall charisma is directly in line with our brand.

It is quite difficult finding influencers who are passionate about the brands that they partner with, but through my dealings with Brian, I can safely say that he is one of the few that truly are.

He has helped us to increase our social media presence whilst also going above and beyond by suggesting improvements that can be made to our garments, leveraging his wealth of personal experience with menswear. I’m looking forward to continuing to work with Brian and I highly recommend him to brands and consumers alike.

When Brian from 40 Something Style asked if we would be willing to write a testimonial about the work he has done for our company we didn’t hesitate! We were looking around for Instagram influencers to partner up with and stumbled upon his blog and we are so thankful for everything he has done to put our little brand on the map. Brian’s ability to create content and engage with his followers was beyond impressive. He took the time to have a conversation with us about what our brand was about and what we stood for, then took that and transformed it into social media coverage. More than just the content he posts, his continued effort to engage with his following is extraordinary. Simply scroll through his Instagram and you will see he takes the time to respond to every follower’s comments while continuing to recognize the brands he is representing. We have thoroughly enjoyed working with Brian and look forward to continuing such a vibrant and successful relationship with him!

Whenever we share Brian’s photos the engagement is through the roof. Brian is an “influencer”, sure, but he’s more like a customer with a true influence. What I mean by that is, he doesn’t share or represent brands or products he doesn’t truly love himself, and he doesn’t simply snap photos and tag brands. He’s passionate about menswear and takes the time to get to know the brand and not only share his experience with their products but also share the brand story or company history, drawing in real interest and engagement from his followers. He’s simply a customer of ours, but one who believes in our products enough to share his photos and experiences related to them. His content is top ranked, always clean, and does an incredible job drawing eyes and attention. Thanks for your continued support, Brian!

Kevin Wohlman, FounderSouthern Scholar

Brian is such a joy to work to work with, his knowledge, sense of style, easy to work with, enthusiasm, patience, his strengths are endless!

He truly does promote your brand with his creative content, engagements with followers and tags your name where ever possible which puts the focus on your product and focus is what it is all about. I have yet to find another influencer that covers all areas as much and as well as Brian does, his Live Box openings are spectacular!

Brian's creativity with his shots of our products are invaluable to us for reposting, allowing us a variety of fresh content we can use on our own media. We give Brian 5 stars as he is a master in what he does and his willingness to teach you what you need to learn. Most looking forward future projects with him!
