Help me name a menswear blog with a reference to monkeys.

My friend wants to expand into fashion blogging, menswear specifically, and has used Monkey in his screen names for long enough to want to encorporate this.

My suggestions so far that he has rejected are Fashion Monkey and Aping Fashion, he is open to similar words to monkey as well.

Thanks hivemind!

You might regret giving a blog a name with a monkey reference in it.

So I've heard.

(I am fascinated by the idea of "similar words to monkey.")

If we knew why he rejected your suggestions that might help.

If they were too short/quippy he might like something like "The Monkey and the Bow Tie" or "The Monkey Wore a Top Hat". Another advantage there is that monkeybowtie.com or whatever is (probably) available.

On the other hand if they were not quippy enough how about "Capuchin Fashion".

My favorite suggestion so far is "Fashion Howler".

The Naked Ape? The tagline would have to be something like "fashion for the highly evolved" to play off of the theme.

something with "ape"-arel, although that pun doesn't work so well on the page.

"Menswear Monkey". Simple, right? Alliterative, too.
