Being a fashionable man is not for everyone. I recognize that. Fact is, there are certain barriers to entry when caring about men’s style. I am not quite sure what all of those barriers are, however I know they are there. I think some of these barriers can be removed by finding your personal style, then putting together a good foundation in your wardrobe. You never know…you may actually find out you like it.
Style, in my mind, is a personal journey. What works well for some may not work well for others. There are men out there that look quite fashionable in double breasted suits. I do not. You have to be open to explore the possibilities. Style can be many things but what is most important is that you feel confidence in it. This is admittedly a difficult task. However, if you are able to establish a good foundation, it is very rewarding. Finding your style has the ability to change a person. Mostly for the better I think. Just because you are doing it from the outside in does not mean it cannot be good.
When I think of style I do not just think about sharp suits and wingtip shoes. A man can look stylish in jeans and a t-shirt if worn correctly. I know that may seem a little silly, but once your eyes are open to style, you will know when something is worn incorrectly. For example, a striped tie against a striped shirt makes you look like a pillock, trust me.
Style is also more than clothes, it is about the elements of your life that make you interesting. Your hobbies, likes, dislikes, how you work or play games, etc. It’s how you carry yourself. Your walk, talk, and most importantly how you treat others. Take the time to find your style and I promise the experience will be rewarding. The outer expression of your inner self, is your style and it should never be a second thought.
