My honest and recent answer...
I'm here because one day I replaced my $8 sunglasses in my car with some old fashioned Ray-Bans. I noticed it made me feel good to wear the sunglasses. Then I bought a nice pair of shoes, and I wore those proudly. Slowly, I started learning a little bit about how to dress and I think I've finally found what I feel home in. I've given up on Fashion as I feel I'm too old for it. So now I'm very much enjoying and feeling confident while learning to dress nicely as a man nearing his middle ages.
These forums provide me with insight into the various products, terms, and techniques that my parents or other relationships never taught me.
That's a great response
