Hi all, Sorry to bother you with a somewhat trivial, inconsequential post, but any feedback or opinions from fellow style forum members is greatly appreciated. I'll get to the point eventually, I promise, so please bear with me. Here goes... My job doesn't require me to dress in anything approaching stylish clothing; indeed if there is a "uniform" in the creative industry which I work, it's a vintage tracksuit top, jeans and old-skool trainers or timberland boots! As a former athlete, I spent most of my teens and 20's in this type of gear. Now that I'm married, a father and in my thirties (still, just!..), I no longer wish to dress in this manner. I have taken steps to address it, but every time I wear what I consider classic tailoring (flannels, medium spread or button-down collared shirt, a fitted v-neck jumper, and goodyear-welted leather soled shoes) to work I receive sarcastic comments. My attempt at sartorial elegance has made me a misfit! By the way, at 6'9" tall and 230lbs, most of the clothes I have are either tailor-made or significantly altered, so I'm keen to wear what I have and can't really afford to follow fashion and change my look (in terms of cut and fit) every season. Am I dressing older than my age before time? Is anyone else faced with this dilemma? If so, how did you deal with it? Did you buckle and return to the "youthful" way of dressing, or stick to your guns and continue to be conspicuous by your individuality? Any feedback or advice gratefully received. Many thanks, people. All the best. Kind regards, Oriente.
