"Every guy on the planet wants shopping to be as easy and efficient as possible, and he wants to leave feeling cool, encouraged, and taken care of. We can do that. We love to do that, actually. If you’re a guy and you wear clothes, you’re our guy, and we want to dress you. The idea behind our fall look is a mix of collegiate and mod. A little Cambridge, a little Carnaby Street… like the guy in your dorm (Class of ‘68) who was listening to James Brown and the Kinks before anyone else. Add reading glasses and it works for the professor too." – Sid Mashburn
Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote that “whoso would be a man, must be a nonconformist.” (Here the word “man” is used in the archaic sense of a person who is powerful and self-reliant.) Silvia Bellezza and co-authors from Harvard Business School have published a paper on what they call “The Red Sneakers Effect”, which suggests that the implication works in the other direction as well: non-conformists are perceived to be more independent, successful, and of higher social status.
I thought that today, I would wear an all Australian outfit and with that in mind, this is what I ended putting together. Forgive the dopey expression - it was raining when I got home and I only had a chance to take the one shot before the rain got worse. I’ll be looking forward to wearing this outfit in the warmer weather as well
