Gentleman this is for us.
In any era of our human civilization,well except the prehistory era where homo sapiens would actually wear whatever they could make from animal skin and most of the time walk around and hunt naked, what you wear has a huge impact on your life and onto the way people will look at you and treat you.That goes for both men and women. Women just seem to understand that a lot more.
But as it appears we start to understand that as well. Or in my case getting into adulthood, I start to ”get it”.
In the early and mid 20th century, I believe that dressing formally and stylish was a must if you wanted to be called a man.A man with a suit,a hat,a tie,a tuxedo,a nice shirt et cetera was considered something standard.Of course even back then you would know who would be working class,middle class or high class by the way the could dress(money-wise) but either way all people understood that having a nice dressing code could get you a lot of things in life.So they all had the basics even people who only wore them to church.
Of course, as we evolve as human beings, fashion evolves as well but often times not accondingly to our innovation.
The quote below matches the above:
Fashion Fade. Style is Eternal
Yves St. Laurent
Of course in our days, we can always dress a little bit more casual. Actually a lot more casual. There is nothing wrong with that. The true blasphemy is when we degrade our personal elegance and downgrade our style to over simplistic sweatpants and t-shirts. Nevertheless good casual looks are a must aswell as the first step in acquiring style IQ.
Great Casual Looks
Don’t get me wrong this is not something ”bad”. At times is great and extremely easy and freeing. Heck, I’m a university student I can’t dress formal most of the time but that’s another article.
Our society and the way the product and clothing industry produces clothes gives you a thousand new outfits every single day. We are a lot more complex than the simplicity of the old ages. But our life is a lot more complex and fast as well.
Whether you find that good or bad it’s up to your own honest and respectable opinion.
I myself find it ok. I think we have to adjust to the new standards but understand that classic never dies. And that’s what I’m going to talk about in this article, not about sweatshirts or jeans or t-shirts as we are all too familiar with these.
Yesterday I watched the new installment of the greatest spy films, James Bond: Spectre.
I won’t review anything particular about the movie but my personal opinion is that it’s an amazing movie a very powerful and complete one. But that’s not the point. My point is that throughout the movie Bond is just so effortlesly stylish.Not in a strange way but in an elegant,strong and classic way. Yes, of course, the suit he wears when meeting the villain- is a little shiny but still the whole movie just reeks of men’s masculinity through clothing.
Dressing up and being a stylish man,either that’s casual,semi-casual,formal,black-tie etc makes your clothing the weapon of choice to this world. It’s how you let people get an idea of who you are. Of course, nothing speaks louder than being Confident and Compelling but dressing the part will always help you become who you want and get what you want.
