Recently I’ve come to a realization. I care about fashion. Not like an overwhelming amount, I’m not going to be looking out for all the hot new trends and paying out the nose to be the first to own them, but I genuinely care about the clothes I wear.
This is a complete and total reversal of how I thought about fashion growing up. As a younger man, I thought fashion was a complete and total waste of time, and the only rule that was worth following was “Comfort is King”. (I don’t know if that is an actual rule, but it sure sounds like one) Really though I was horrible about clothing growing up and I’m sure my older sisters and mother will attest to this. I was the guy wearing pajama pants, graphic tees and hoodies almost every day and then I’d show up one day with clean jeans and a button-up shirt thinking that would make people magically forget how I dressed for weeks before. It wasn’t pretty. I haven’t abandoned the idea of comfort being important though, Skinny jeans just feel awkward to wear and that’s that.
But now that I’ve discovered my fondness for my own personal fashion, what am I doing to do now? Uhh… good question. Right now All I do is that whenever I happen to be at a place that sells clothes I just sorta look for whatever I think looks good. It’s really a bit of a guessing game right now. I think it’s working, but the only mild piece of evidence of this I have is this picture I took on Instagram.
It’s not a terribly great photo, but for my small account, the shirt I’m wearing got a good bit of praise. So for that reason alone, I think I might be on the right track for how to dress. I’m open to suggestion though. My tax return is in and I’m wanting to put a little bit of that money into leveling up my wardrobe so let me know if you have a good idea of things I can wear. I swear to all that is good in the world if anyone sends me links to Supreme gear I will come for you. That crap is just dumb.
