Pacman's Redefined Essentials

The Man Behind the Flatlays

Redefining Essentials

My friends call me Phil, telemarketers call me Phil Cohen (please stop!), and a sizeable swath of the internet calls me @thepacman82. I’m an art director by day, but after I punch out each evening, I tend to another passion of mine, menswear. But I wasn't always into men's style like I am today. Back in 2012, I started posting snapshots of what I wore each day on Instagram as a creative way to showcase and share my personal style journey.

Things have taken off since then—beyond what I could have ever expected. It’s been really cool to discover that so many people are interested in following along. Below I’ve picked out a few of my favorite items. Have a look, and if you like what you see (or don't but hopefully that's not the case), give me a shout!

From The Man Himself “Taylor Stitch seems to really care about their customers because they care about the quality of their products. They care about big picture and all of the small details.

Every item they release feels like it has an unique story behind it—the whole workshop experience is exciting and allows me to feel more involved with the process.”
