Michael focuses on slow making and slow living while appreciating the good things from good people. He also gives recommendations on how to style, what to wear and how to wear it. Subscribe to A Continuous Lean for unlimited men's style advice and classic fits.




Michael Williams founded A Continuous Lean in 2007. It started as a blog but as it continued to find interest and success from his audience he transitioned it to a newsletter. His writing has also appeared in GQ, Men’s Journal, GOLF, and Men’s Health among others.


A free subscription to A Continuous Lean will get you only occasional public posts. We looked into the archive and it seems that you can expect an issue to hit your inbox around once a month. If you’re interested in the content, we suggest you go paid.


The paid subscription to A Continuous Lean costs $8/month. As a paying member, you can expect to receive an issue around two to three times a week. The author focuses on quality rather than quantity, so don’t expect it to be very regular though. You will get lots of different types of content though. Members receive SIGNALS, a round-up of thoughts on style and internet links from the week, as well as get access to the Central Division podcast, a weekly talk co-hosted with The Contender’s writer David Coggins for more ACL in audio form.
