I don’t know what the hell I’m doing anymore… I think I’m on another style journey in my life. Could be my age, my location, changes with my body, my new lifestyle, but I’ve been feeling the need for a refresh in what I’m wearing. I feel like I’m in that weird middle ground of not being young and cool anymore, and not being old enough to be the cool old guy that doesn’t give a shit. It’s hard for me because I basically helped start the whole menswear movement over a decade ago, and I was known for being a go-to guy for inspiration. But after having my kid and getting older and moving away from NYC my style journey kinda halted. Now I wear stuff and I’m like “am I just trying to be cool?” “Am I too old for this?” “Does this even fit?” Stuff like that. And I also still want to serve as inspiration for people so I don’t want to just give up.
I went into Zara and H&M recently for the first time to actually shop in YEARS. I found some cool stuff, like this shirt and shoes from Zara, but I still don’t know. Like, are the pants wrong? Does the hat look off? It’s weird not being as confident in experimenting as I used to be. So bear with me as I continue on in my style journey and I hope that this helps some of you that are struggling as well. We’re all constantly evolving and changing and that’s okay. Stick with me.
