Style is a Long Term Game

Last week, I was people-watching in a coffee shop, paying close attention to their fits.

This one older gentleman entered the cafe wearing a worn in pair of Chelsea boots, cozy socks, straight-fit selvedge denim with a tailored blazer worn on top of a thick textured knit. His fit was immaculate. Each piece was high quality. And he styled his outfit tastefully. He wasn’t trendy, but he was stylish.

I could tell that his style had developed after many, many years. It takes years of observation and experimentation to cultivate an authentic sense of style and it also takes years to build a high-quality wardrobe to match. He’s my style goals and reminded me that fashion is a long-term game.
