My style has- for the moment - moved away from fit, color, brand, construction etc.
I am still learning, but over the last one year of purchasing a bunch of stuff I've realized that "I want" is a constant refrain and the desire to buy new and beautiful things never lets go, if you let it take over.
Me, I want an Edward Green Dover, I want a John Lobb William II, I want an SNS Herning Stark, I want a RLPL Cashmere cardigan, I want a TOJ leather, now I want a pair of Samurai jeans, a Cabourn jacket, I want, I want....... this, to me, is in itself neither graceful nor stylish.
And I am not sure whether I am developing a sense of style or only feeding the 'I want' monster.
Therefore, my sense of style is moving towards developing and defining the parameters of what I want. In turn this is based partly on what I need and what I actually use.
For example, shoes. I want to wear different shoes every day of the week, casuals on Fridays, two weeks in a row. I believe that this rotation will ensure that my shoes last for a long time. Therefore it is my goal to purchase 10 high quality shoes (8 plus 2) and let it go. I have over the year accumulated 8 of these shoes. Similarly for sweaters. The objective in each case being to identify what I need, buy the best I can, and let it go.
