I've had an interesting sartorial journey. Started caring about the way I looked back in middle school when I began reading my brother's GQ and Details magazines, but got sucked into the neo-prep teenager and then the closely related fratty style up until my freshman year college. In my sophomore year, I skipped a generation and started investing in real clothes, with a lean towards "trad" staples. Now that I'm working on a collection of chinos, OCBDs, and loafers...not sure how else to evolve, but glad I found this wisdom early in my adulthood. The one constant is that I've always stayed more American in my clothing choices, but I also think I have two separate styles. The trad style for academic settings and then the cool city vibe for clubs and going out. I plan on never limiting myself to a single style, and open myself to anything that looks classical and non-trendy.
