Here. We. GO!

So excited to premiere my updated blog, The Looksmith. Why that name? Well it obviously includes my last name, but it’s also a play on the classic profession. I consider myself a problem solver and think that I have the key to feeling good about yourself through looking good and being comfortable. It’s a new title and new design with the same passion for sharing my style and style related opinions. The main reason I decided to change the name was because I found that, as things have started to pick up, Gentleman’s Candor was difficult to say to people and have them immediately understand me. I wanted something simpler that stuck in your mind and I think this does the trick.

As I continue to expand and develop, I want to include varying elements on the site to differentiate myself. I’m very excited to start collaborating with other bloggers and brands very soon and hope that what I bring to the table will not only change people’s minds about the importance of style but also about the importance of staying true to who you are as an individual.

I’m all ears with this thing, gang. If you have a suggestion or something you think could be cool to try, LET ME KNOW…seriously! I want to try everything. I love posting my outfits and stuff but I know that other things need to be incorporated as well.

Lots of different stuff should be popping up in the coming weeks and months, so if there’s something you particularly enjoy or something you particularly hate, let it be known. I’m very active on social media and always on my phone (ask my girlfriend), so feel free to email me at or find me through my social media at the top of the page and in the sidebar.

Thanks so much for the support! It means the world to me that people tune into this thing and I’m ecstatic about the possibilities of what’s to come.


About the author

I'm Parker York Smith, a curious dude still very much figuring everything out. I hail from the Midwest but have been dwelling in Los Angeles for the last few years being a pretty stereotypical west coast transplant. I'm a fashion geek, I love to walk (a LOT) and I do my best to find the bright side. I'm extremely excited about this blog and hope that (with some hard work and luck) it turns into what I believe it can. If you have any questions, comments or concerns, please get in touch with me via my social networks (which can be found in the sidebar) or email me at

Looks great man! As you mentioned, you've been pretty specific to clothing. What I've been experimenting with a lot recently are hairstyles (especially since the barber movement is back in full force ). I've also been looking more at various accessories like rings, bracelets and especially WATCHES. Anyway, looking forward to the upcoming post and keep up the great work!
