In my eight years living in New York City, I have made a name for myself as a men’s style expert, a media personality and a well-respected scene maker/cultural hustler in the worlds of fashion and music. I write a weekly column about men’s style for Playboy.com called “Self Styled with Elliot Aronow” and edit and publish a seasonal arts and culture magazine entitled OUR SHOW with Elliot Aronow. I am also the Co-Founder and Creative Director of RCRD LBL, the world’s first free and legal curated download site.
Before that, I worked as an editor for FADER Magazine; I designed and spearheaded the now legendary online/viral marketing campaign for Gnarls Barkley and their decade-topping hit song “Crazy” and I consulted for SPIN and Roc-A-Fella/Def Jam, who asked me to write Kanye West’s official press bio.
From 2008-2011 I produced, wrote, directed and hosted a talk/variety show called OUR SHOW with ELLIOT ARONOW that has featured James Murphy/LCD Soundsystem, Vampire Weekend, Das Racist, TV On The Radio, Theophilus London and many more.
Most recently the Wall Street Journal (PDF) said: “Mr. Aronow has established himself as the go to guy when it comes to style and relationship advice for metropolitan men.”

“Elliot is an incredibly smooth dresser and often I ask myself: ‘Why do I bother to wear clothes because I will never look as cool as this man?’” — Mark Ronson
