I am new here, so first let me introduce myself and thank you for reading and considering my problem. I am 30, live in Central Europe and I work in creative field in a managerial position. I am an avid GQ reader and you could probably tell. Today you would see me wearing slim fitting navy blazer, rigid dark denim jeans, tan grenson brogues, camo tie and a jack spade swiss brief. I wear tortoise Persol prescription glasses, my hairstyle is could be described as undercut pompadour, recently I've grown beard and I have a slim build.
So far so good, people compliment me on my style very often and I consider it good myself.
I am struggling with the fact, that yesterday, you would see me wearing white shirt, dark blue tie, grey vest, jeans and brogues. The day before chambray shirt, knitted tie, navy blazer and jeans. And before that jeans, brogues, white shirt, dark tie, navy v-neck sweater with rolled sleeves. And the fact is that I like all of these individual outfits, they are even very cost-effective as they consist of very few items yet you can create completely different feeling of them, but that is exactly something that I don't want. I want my style to be consistent, not hipster-ish one day and GQ-smart other day, it almost gives me a feeling of having a different personality. And my transition to casual style is even more difficult - is it polo with jeans and brogues, or t-shirt with blazer, or chinos and shirt, nike vortex or comme des garcons jack purcell (both of which I am very fond of)?
So, please, what would be your advice on how to build a consistent wardrobe and having a consistent style? Preferably with concrete outfit examples but I will appreciate any take on this topic.
Thank you a lot and have a nice day
