2015 Style Resolutions

Clothes

It's hard but calm the fuck down on prints. Well okay, maybe some prints. I love prints. But they're definitely not as easy to match.

I went wayyyy too hard on buying cheap GBV shirts - the fits nice but the 'versatility' is lacking. Sell a lot of those (Luckily I can break even / profit ;) ), buy a couple more solid colored or plaid 19th century BDs. Having a rotation of a few great shirts >>> many silly ones. Makes getting dressed easier too.

Then maybe I can award myself with a print blazer/bomber.

buy fewer bdus, I found a place that does custom sizes so I'm probably going to get some made with the same measurements as my wtaps jeans. Acquire a wtaps hoodie (I'm one in mind right now) plan purchases out better in general. fashion has become much less fun for me lately, not sure why, but I feel like I'm spinning my gears in the mud and not making any progress to being more "stylish" this is probably brought on by too much internet fashion lol

Non fashion--do cool shit, make friends etc. etc.

i know i said "less outerwear" in mine, but I'm going to add a leather a2 to my list. i absolutely LOVE the unis suede bomber I got, but it's very light weight and I would like a full leather for the colder weather. probably going to spend my tax return on an eastman a2.

To stop getting frustrated when I can't afford the new clothes I want, and just enjoy the stuff I've got already.

it will probably be boots. It may potentially be a coat.

stay strong future self.


So not one day after posting this the dry cleaners called me to let me know they'd lost both my suits and my spare pair of slacks.

best laid plans, aye

Eat, pop vitamins, workout, seek for good deals, don't pay full retail price (I never do, but it's just good to make sure), get a cool haircut (got one, but it already grew out 2 much), educate, educate, educate.

AND ANOTHER THING:

I want to buy more vintage. Currently all I have is a pair of shoes that are vintage. It can be tough because I'm so small, but I'll probably buy a vintage MUSA denim jacket off the 'bay, a vintage m65, and maybe even an old pair of super washed MUSA 501s for that OL 70s wash jizz.

Actually did pretty well with this. Uniqlo purchases were entirely socks, bought a decent amount from Gap, but nothing that I'd say I spent too much on. Still a clearance junkie but I'd rather get burned for $5 than $30.

yeah i think ive got most of this

still working on cool interesting ones but i think ive got colors down. I've definitely got some cool approachable guy stuff (big hoodies, ripped jeans that happened naturally, neat socks), not the typical "cool guy" stuff like leather jackets, chelseas, etc..

I think i need to hone in on this look, because i really like it and im happy with it. I've gotten rid of a lot of stuff too, so pretty much all i wear is stuff that i love. Not yet ready to quit the game. Bela's words ring throughout my head like a grandfather clock, teasing me like the end is near, but i know its not.
