In the world of men’s fashion influencers, Sabir Peele is one of the most recognized names. His website (and Instagram page) Men’s Style Pro, has become one of the go-to destinations for men seeking style help and inspiration. On New York Men’s Day at the start of New York Fashion Week, QG’s fashion editor, Aaron Campbell, sat down with Sabir to learn more about his story and to get a sneak peek at his new shoe collaboration with e-commerce footwear brand 3DM Lifestyle.
3DM X MSP – Belgian Loafers – Oliver Suede, $155
Sabir started in fashion around 2010. During this time, Esquire Magazine held a contest to name the “Best-Dressed Real Man in America.” Entering this contest, Sabir subsequently was selected to be in the final five, chosen from thousands of participants (he also won the fan favorite category). After the success of this victory and a late-night call with a friend, Sabir started Men’s Style Pro, serving as the official jump-start of his fashion career.
In the early years of the site, Sabir was also working as an Admissions Counselor, which allowed him the ability to tag on meetings with brands and attend fashion shows when he would be in New York visiting schools. As the success of the site and social media grew, it became increasingly clear that in order to take Men’s Style Pro to the next level, he would have to commit to it full-time.

After winning additional style contests such as GQ’s “Best-Dressed Reader” and landing collaborations with several well-known brands including Nivea and Johnston and Murphy, Sabir resigned from his admissions role and began hosting GQ’s Lookbook Live events nationally. Since then, Sabir has worked with numerous high-profile brands across industries including Suitsupply, Lincoln and Four Seasons Hotels. His most recent collab, however, involves designing his own collection of shoes with e-commerce footwear brand 3DM Lifestyle.
Sabir’s collection consists of three shoes encompassing different style aesthetics reflected in his own wardrobe. The first, named the Clive Olive Suede Belgian Loafer, is a classic featuring an Argentinian leather sole and green suede that would perfectly compliment any well-tailored chino. Another piece in the collection named the Brixton Pebble Grain Chestnut Brown Boot, made of brown calfskin leather and tan cow leather lining could easily jazz up a pair of dark blue jeans or modernize a classic navy suit. The third shoe, the Burgundy Croc Embossed Butterfly Loafer, is a stunning piece made of a full-grain crocodile print calfskin leather complete with two interwoven leather strips. Pair this shoe with basically anything and your outfit will instantly be “lifted.”
