Re: confidence and comfort, it is most of the time your stance. When you have bad posture, you'll find yourself most comfortable maintaining that bad posture. If someone's shoulders are curved, if their feet are splayed out, if their hips are tilted, or if their head is perched far forward, then telling them to stand up straight will probably look awkward and be somewhere between uncomfortable and painful.
Whether they recognize it or not, people tend to view good posture as a projection of another person's confidence and comfort. It's not a strictly "mental" or behavioral thing.
Not a real fit more so need advice. Anyone have footwear suggestions for this? I can't decide between side zip or laced. In either case want split leather. Also want to get the aa viscose t in grey and/or white for this.
edit: glasses look crazy weird in this pic. makes me think of bottles in banjo kazooie
