    2011 insights:

    Last year I wrote that I wanted to wear my sleeker suits and shoes, and I did; I also got rid of all my BBBF, except their sweaters, and stopped buying Alden and shell shoes.

    I also focused on fewer, but higher quality goods and higher quality experiences (e.g., upgraded lodging and travel for my personal and business trips.)

    2012 plans:

    A few really good things, including a car ( if I can make up my mind on what I want).

    I'm pleased with how things unfolded for 2011, and am looking forward to a continuation of the same in 2012.

    Sounds like spoo is a lucky boy!

    2011 Insight: Buying and (partially) remodeling a condo puts a bigger dent in my wallet than my clothing jones. Unemployment hasn't helped my style much, either.

    2012 Plans: Get a job, finish the remodel, and quit darning my socks iroh style.

    - if I can't walk four blocks in a pair of shoes, ditch them. Comfort matters.
    - when shopping to update business clothing. DO NOT follow sartorial advice from smarmy twinks in fauxhawks, the older guys have forgotten more than those morons will ever learn about business dress. Had a look at Tom Ford suits to see what the hype was about, funny little fella said the Roger Moore 007 lapels were "classic" business wear....
    -fashion comes and goes, style endures. Back in the day, my boss was an old, crusty stick in the mud who was about fifteen years out of date in fashion, he wore short suit jackets with skinny lapels and too tight above the ankle pants. He look stupid then , but it 1965 all over again thee days.

    2012
    - planning a bucket list purchase in London this winter.
    -gave away a few pair of I'll fitting shoes, making sure they fit properly and have an enduring quality to them now.
    -try to figure out why I like what I like

    2011 Insights...
    1. Joined SF and read much more about style . Learned a ton
