What I find most annoying is that anyone's taste needs justification. Whenever a new workwear thread pops up, folks who don't wear/like workwear chime in like clockwork to mock or criticize it. I would hope we all wear the clothes we choose because we find them aesthetically pleasing on various levels.
I'll be curious to see what you, me and most of us on this forum wear in 2 or 3 years. I have a feeling chambray ties won't be part of our wardrobes anymore though.
Who cares? My taste in clothes has changed several times over my life and it may change again. That said, I'm thoroughly enjoying what I wear these days, all the way down to the thread of the fabric. So, I can't imagine my taste changing anytime in the future at all, hopefully.
