Quote - "Although there is indeed value in knowledge, true understanding of any subject comes from experience. Don’t let your imperfect wardrobe or .jpeg library of #menswear keep you from putting things on with confidence in the morning. Try things, learn from your mistakes, and have fun.
Practice is the key to improving; money is not."
I agree with CEP about trusting your gut and like Selvaggio often wear items the rules would suggest do not work together as I like the combination and feel good in them (suede boots with suits, white shirts with knit ties, french cuffs with no tie and/or jacket to name a few). If these things make me ignorant or perceived as badly dressed so be it, but I am (mostly) happy with my clothing choices and dress for the enjoyment of it (among other things such as respect for others and looking the best I can).
Also, harking back a little, as a Scotsman I thought whiskey (spelt with an "e") was meant to be drunk with coke...(yes, I am just stirring....).
