In the Media
My name is Joshua Ang Price and I am a public relations and digital communications specialist. An avid lover of fashion, I write monthly men's style blogs published by two regional magazines and am a proud brand ambassador for several men's accessory companies through my Instagram account @the.hybrid.gent.

"It is every man's obligation to put back into the world at least the equivalent of what he takes out of it."

"If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader."
- John Quincy Adams
I am a lover of classic men’s style, bold colors and vintage details. I attribute my personal sense of style to my mother and paternal grandfather. My mother is from the Philippines, a country that never experienced the cultural shift that occurred in the United States in the 1960’s–70’s, so she instilled in me a very traditional view of how men and women should properly dress. My father’s family is from southwestern Arkansas, and I can describe my paternal grandfather as an archetypal southern gentleman who owned over 40 suits and wore one every day.
“Dress how you want to be addressed.”

Why Style is Important
I believe that because sight is the primary sense for most people, it’s important to develop your personal style as an expression of who you are and how you wish to be perceived.
"You are a walking billboard for your personal brand. Show people who you are and what you have to offer instead of letting them make assumptions."
- Joshua Price
Before someone can hear your voice (or smell you), they see you from afar and already begin making inferences, whether consciously or subconsciously, so I believe it's better to control that message yourself. Always strive to dress and act like the man you want to be.
