This photo is so wonderfully amazing and awesome, I am not worried at all that I am taking it from a far better and epically more popular blog than my own humble website.
However, this photo embodies to me what it means to be stylish and yet simple; so unadorned and traditional and yet chic and confident to the hilt. Perfection. Just goes to show that your apparel can be truly basic and unadorned but with a confident air and posture, YOU make the outfit. When I was taking Latin (a truly pointless 3 years, mind you), I learned a phrase, 'Vestis Virum Reddit': 'The clothes make the man'. Sometimes this is true but utimately we have the ability to 'make' our clothes (literally and figuratively); to make them look good and to make ourselves feel confident in whatever we happen to throw on every morning. I've heard people say things like 'She'd look great wearing a towsack' ... we'll, that's probably because 'she' is exuding a confidence that has nothing at all to do with what she's wearing.

Especially love the meanswear shoes!
