Hi, I’m Peter Nguyen, founder of The Essential Man

I help ambitious men develop their personal style and revamp their image, without losing who they are. 

Men who tell me:

  • “I hate shopping.”
  • “I can never find anything that fits my body type.”
  • “I’m not in college anymore, and now I just want to be taken seriously.”

In short, I help guys look their absolute best.

I spent the last 10 years here in New York working in Menswear Design.

I worked along side a GQ Award Winning Menswear Designer for 5 years, and I even started my own Men’s clothing line.

I learned that style wasn’t only about trying to look good on the surface, that’s easy. Anyone can scroll through Mr. Porter and order the newest jacket.

It’s really about creating and presenting a version of yourself that you believe exists, in all areas.

From your haircut, to your glasses, to your suit color and career choice.

Even where you spend your vacation days and how you take your coffee!

It’s signaling to the world what kind of man you are, the kind of man you want to be.

Someone that wants enjoys nice things and is successful enough to have them.

THE ESSENTIAL MAN IS ABOUT CREATING THE BEST VERSION OF YOURSELFTO LIVE THE LIFE YOU WANT

And here’s how I’m going to help you do that…
