I'm John, 25 years old. Prior to the last year or so, I was one of "those" guys. Shopped for clothes at Hot Topic, wore a trench coat, wore other coats simply to look "cool", and yes, I was even a fedora nerd for a while. Between being single, desperate, and lonely, I had no drive to change up my fashion sense until some people on a forum said the way I dress would be one step to improve my self-confidence and my chances at getting a date. I turned to my friends and they took me to the mall a few times to get me started. Since summer of last year, I've been blowing a number of paychecks trying to find new clothing that would acclimate my new style. No more simply wearing trendy black gamer T-shirts, a pair of shorts, and wearing my socks up to my calves. I started wearing more polos, button shirts, matching clothes, and yes, even scarves, and continue to improve my wardrobe whenever I can.
Right now, I'm looking into getting a pair of brown high-top walking shoes (I find them under "boots" on the JCPenney store) and a few more hoodies and button shirts to wear. I'm here so I can continue improving my fashion sense and hope I'll get the chance to help other people who were in my situation once.
