Where is your style going? - Page 39

post #571 of 756
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.

Sorry, my post was mostly tongue in cheek. I recently read a book that was set in 1930's Berlin, that was about jazz musicians, so I've been thinking about the imagery it created. And I'm somewhat interested in the fashions from that era. But I'm thinking less flashy, three piece suits, and something more along the lines of the hairstyles, long overcoats, muted colors, etc.

I'm looking to go in a more austere direction, narrowing my focus onto fit, construction and solid pieces. That means no more busy pieces like pocket squares, bracelets, beads or loudly patterned/coloured things in general. I don't want anything that would distract from the overall silhouette.

PipersSon... you make a reasonable and thoughtful point... I mean you can only wear one pair of shoes at a time and having a few in the rotation will help their longevity. Personally I don't know if I could ever reach the level of zen "letting it go" as you say. My clothing changes w/ my mood, environment, season (obviously) and I love finding new things and incorporating those in w/ the classic older pieces. And I'll admit I enjoy shopping and I can wear most anything I want so I really can't limit myself too much. I think your right, that having a clearer idea of one's style can be beneficial in a way, but also losing the child-like curiosity and adventure of clothing, which should always be fun, is too dear.

More ervell. band of outsiders. Maybe I try Jil, Schneider. More taper pants, longer and less cropped, dress shoes. Dressy but not "dressed up". Then again I want to wear Junya, Visvim because they are just too cool when i see them in person. Maybe I wear jeans again.
