Style is something that is inherent for some, while a challenge for others. Growing up, I think it largely depends on the influence of parents and siblings. Ultimately style is a choice. You can choose to take part in it or ignore it.
Recently I have embraced my style and made it into something of my own. As I lay in bed last night, I was thinking about a brand mantra (that I wrote) which is “DON’T COMPETE.” If you buy in, it could change your life. Don’t play by the rule’s other people play, invent your own and live by them.
This is largely reflected in personal style, and my own especially. Rather than caring what other people might think (in passing) which is irrelevant, here is some advice: do what’s best for you. Learning to shrug those people off who might be indifferent to your choices is one of the most valuable things you can do for yourself.
When you get up in the morning, and truly care about your presentation, you will reap benefits. I first learned this from Kevin Stewart whom I posted about earlier.
I have been searching for shirts with tribal patterns and boots. I also found a great leather jacket with a world map on the inside, but the zipper was busted and I’m still waiting to get it back.
Start caring not about the way you look (because you look great) but the way you present yourself, and you will enjoy yourself more.
