"Men and Fashion" is still a great mystery for me. I already wrote about possible reasons why men are not as interested in style as women. And still, I wish I could write more about men's fashion and fashion related topics. I am sorry to say that, but there are by far more stylish women on the streets then men. That's why I am always happy to stumble upon gentlemen with the certain something. Harun is one of them. He confirms my theory: Obviously stylish men often work for the fashion industry. That's why they are aware of trends and timeless style. Meeting Harun makes me wonder, who is to say, more than anyone else, you look good?
As fashion is such a subjective social topic, it is only inevitable that we will each have our individual ideas of what looks good. We develop a clear idea of style and dressing that suits our particular tastes and we don’t really gravitate from that. In truth, the question of who’s to say you look good is a mixture of different aspects. The fashion industry dictates what kind of items dominate the high street, they create the trends and reinforce the classic styles, they choose the colours, the cut, fit and everything in between, and we are left as the consumers. But within this, we still have the choice: we can choose to wear one thing over another, we can choose how we want to look and it is up to us to be confident in our choices. Confidence in your clothes makes all the difference to the way you walk, the way you talk and the way you carry yourself – it is a crucial element of any man’s (and woman's) wardrobe.
