What seems like many, many years ago, I used to be a bit of a whore Clothes Horse. I didn't just wear whatever was clean and pressed (as I do now). I made conscious decisions about what "outfit" I'd wear, and on what day I'd wear it. I usually had enough stock in my closet to never repeat the same pair of pants within a 2-week span. [Gay Gasp....perish the thought!]...but that was so long ago & things just aint the same.
I'm starting to get that those sartorial urges again. It's time to build up my collection and put more thought into what I'm wearing. I do love clothes. I prefer classic over trendy. I never was a Label Whore. I think you can look just as stylish with a wardrobe put together from Le Tarjay, thrift stores, and/or your everyday retail shops. No need to get all Designer on my ass to impress me. Don't get me wrong, if anyone out there has any John Varvatos, Viktor & Rolf, or Paul Smith just laying around, I'm a size a medium....or I will be in a few months.
Anyhoo, I'd love to pair all 3 of the pieces in the above pic with a faded pair of straight legged jeans & a super-crisp white button down. Not sure if I could pull off the bow tie, but a neck tie with the same pattern/colors would work. Really loving those blue shoes!
