I have been trying to get back into wearing suits these days. Believe it or not, I think I have like 30-40 suits and another 40-50 jackets/blazers. I know. It’s a lot. I actually love to dress up. But sometimes it is hard. NYC has extreme weather so it is not always comfortable to do so, either being too hot or freezing cold. In London, I dressed up daily.
NYC has also got me back in the trenches. Back in London, I spent all of my money on employees who shined and packed the shoes. I never had to shine. Now I spend all of my money on stock and do the rest myself. I am always getting the polish on my dress shirts, which kills me. So I am often reluctant to wear my nice clothing on days that I know I will either be moving around a lot of dusty boxes or polishing a bunch of shoes. And there the cycle goes ’round.
But I miss wearing suits. As a dress shoe connoisseur, I feel it is an injustice to always be casual or ‘jean style dress’. I need to pair my beautiful shoes with beautiful suits and therefore decided that I needed to get back into it. Especially if I want to lead by example and see men dressing better again. I have to inspire them even if it is for 2 secs passing by on the street. If we don’t show, people won’t know.
So I thought I would show you some of the latest suits that I have recently acquired. And there are more to come!
Get your suits on this Summer and celebrate being alive while looking good!
