Also, be sure to follow James on all of his social media sites at JamesRSanders.
Check out the latest editorial styled by James for FAVE Magazine. He’s had a long-running relationship with the uber chic publication which is based in Canada.

A few months ago, James was approached by High End, a popular fashion magazine in Indonesia of all places. James was thrilled to be involved and we were as well when we heard that they were interested in running a featured interview with him. They interviewed the stylist/editor about tips for the spring and summer along with how he broke into the industry almost a decade ago. Time flies when you’re being fabulous. Indonesia has a budding fashion scene with talented designers and editors and is quickly popping up on the radar of the fashion industry. James was happy to be considered by High End’s editorial staff for their April 2015 issue especially because it’s their 7th anniversary issue. You can purchase the digital copy here. Sadly the print version is only available in Indonesia.
We are uber-excited over here because our fearless leader James is the newest feature on the popular plus-size men’s fashion blog Chubstr.com. James was interviewed by Bruce Sturgill (the site’s main editor) and asked about everything: his new limited run of handbags, styling, the stores he shops, and some secrets and tricks he’s learned along the way. Check out the interview here, and be sure to check out Chubstr for all of your plus size men’s sartorial needs.
Last night’s Academy Awards red carpet was one of the more interesting in the last few years. Where Old Hollywood glamour was the priority in the past, this year, actresses were more sexy and alluring with their gown choices and James has the scoop exclusively for Glamour Magazine. Check out all of James’s picks here.
James has been working for Circle + Square for a few months now on themed curated collections based on the inventory in their store. He loves it but this month when asked to curate a Fifty Shades inspired collection, it was a challenge.
“Everyone who knows me knows that I’m not the most romantic and physical kind of person. HA! Relationships aren’t really my thing,” says James.
Well we think he did a fabulous job, and we think you will too. Check out his special selects here just in time for some last minute Valentine’s Day gifts and the premiere of Fifty Shades of Grey in theaters tonight.
Of the fashion shows that take place all over the world, The Haute Couture week in Paris is the most coveted. James writes, and we agree, that Haute Couture is fashion fantasy in the truest sense of the word. That’s why when he was tapped by Glamour Magazine to write about the shows in Paris, we were uber-excited for him. This isn’t his first time covering the Haute Couture shows, but “each time feels like the first time,” James laughs and adds, “you always remember your first.”
Cheers to our fearless leader for publishing another story in Glamour Magazine and for every time feeling like the first time. If you want to read James’s commentary, check it out here.
With the men’s collections concluding James was tapped by Conde Nast International to do a trend report for GQ Magazine – South Africa. He had the privilege of reviewing the Paris shows for the magazine. This was an important assignment for James, and one that he did not take lightly, especially after the tragedies of the last two weeks in Paris. Check out James’s full coverage here.
With one major award show down (last night’s Golden Globes), and many more to go, Glamour Magazine tapped James to compile a list of his best dressed from the night. There were some stunners and some that left James feeling like he’d just stepped on to the set of “The Hours.” Either way, his list was published and people are already talking about some of his selections. Do you agree with his choices? Check out the list here.
