    Even the girl is the same, as it has been for 27 years.
    [...]


    Wow, not sure what's more impressive, 27 years with the same woman or 10 years with the same tailor [​IMG]
    Did Edwin and you celebrate some kind of anniversary?

    Gucci G watch.

    [​IMG] I still have that watch - has massive sentimental value.

    10 years ago I fell on either side of stone/lizard-print loafers, jeans and untucked French cuff shirts with leather jackets or neoprene and sunburn...

    10 years ago? The following was a little over a year ago before finding SF:

    Too loose pleated Dockers.
    Big blousy dress shirts from Macy's.
    Square toed shoes.
    Shiny print ties licensed by Jerry Garcia's descendants.

    Still a ton to learn, but I've found a great tailor, I'm making better choices in style and fit, and I'm enjoying the process immensely...

    Ten years ago I was much fatter. So I actually fit into RTW. [​IMG] While still having something of my current love of dramatic clothing, my size and more junior role (not to mention, the associated relative financial restriction) meant I generally wore lots of mid-market department store items from the likes of House of Fraser, John Lewis, Allders, M&S, and so on. Some interesting colours, but generally more conservative and restrained than I wear these days. Losing weight really did help me shake off some sartorial shackles. It took me years to adjust to a different figure though; for years afterward I still wore items that didn't really suit my new build.

    Yeesh... I was 15, so it was probably a rugby shirt, light-washed jeans or cargo pants, white athletic socks, and white basketball shoes. (I don't play basketball.) That was pretty much my outfit every single day. [​IMG]

    Wow, 10 years ago I was still in undergrad and was a metal head.

    So, my outfit pretty much consisted of torn jeans with black boots and a black heavy metal band t-shirt. Had long hair and unkempt beard, too.

    To summarize, I looked like a bloody idiot.

    I still wear my green Eddie Bauer wool winter jacket, daily. Oldest piece of clothing in my rotation, and shows zero signs of slowing down. [​IMG] Golf attire: Various colors of khakis & polo shirts. Lots of solid T-shirts Eddie Bauer / Abercrombie checked shirts. Some sort of Bass-style brown shoes.
