“Clothes make a man. Naked people have little or no influence on society”.

– Mark Twain

If you told my thirteen year old self that one day I would own more than ten pairs of shoes, at one time, I’d say you’re crazy! As a child, I fondly remember relying on my mum to do my clothes shopping for me. I could care less what she bought, maybe sometimes wanting my favorite superhero on my t-shirt. She had my complete trust and full control.

Into my early twenties, I began having a slight interest in the clothes I wear but was still heavily reliant on girlfriends to pick out what to buy from the shops. Beyond jeans and polo tees, maybe the occasional shirt, I knew of nothing more. In some sense, I had my insecurities which I hid behind ‘safe clothes’, to avoid attention and scrutiny.

How things have changed.

Today, I find myself noticing styles of what people are wearing, browsing the internet for style guides and educating myself on the grand world of style and fashion. Through accumulated knowledge, I am beginning to develop an intuition for my own style. Fashion, to me, is art you can wear daily as a form of self-expression. I definitely feel a lot more confident wearing well-made and well-fitting clothes. And then there’s accessories as well to further accentuate your expression.

My style now is one of refined understatement. I look for pieces that are made to last, often mixing casual with refined pieces. I am sure my style will continue to evolve as I navigate through life.

This is only the tip of the iceberg. Exciting times ahead.
