My first blog about my personal journey to build a gentleman’s wardrobe: my 5-year project.
The 5- year project is in part a reaction against the prevailing culture of ‘right now.’ Some things take time and should take time because they are important. To me clothing is important because without it we’d all be naked. 🙂 Not a great idea; not very attractive…. More importantly, being properly attired can raise our confidence levels and shape the impressions others gain about us, and indeed that we gain about ourselves.
This a blog for men. We are not entirely comfortable in our own skin when it comes to matters of style. For women and for the new ‘metrosexuals’ its OK to have a certain sense of style. But for average and slightly old fashioned guys like me? The jury is out. In addition, it seems to me that the very notion of manhood and manliness is up for debate. This blog hopes to make some contribution to that ongoing conversation.
In the interest of openness, I have no formal links with any clothing designers or retailers. I am an amateur. The site receives no corporate sponsorship so anything I say is my own opinion, and mine alone.
Feel free to leave comments and suggestions. Happy reading
