Sport Your Own Unique Style
There are so many ways to live one’s values. Through seeking farm-to-table dining establishments. Discovering ways of traveling via mass transit, two wheels, or by foot. By volunteering for causes that you believe in. By reusing and repurposing the things that you treasure and finding new ways to maintain them and give them life.
The Ties that Bind
Clothing is one more link in the vibrantly lived and well-orchestrated life. Yes, it’s simple to go out and buy something off of the rack and there’s nothing wrong with that. It’s easy, it’s there, and we’ve all done that. But to live your values, one way to go is to re-think your clothing purchases.
New to You
Consider haunting the fabulous stores that sell everything from vintage threads to army and camping surplus. This way you are keeping the material out of landfills and finding a way to enjoy a garment that shares its history with you. But just because something is found doesn’t mean it can’t have the air of something made just for you. Go upmarket with the perfect flea market find of a fine cashmere coat, a zoot suit, or khaki slacks by taking them to the tailor and have them customized to fit both your aesthetic vision and your form.
Merging Cultures and Couture
When you have traveled and gathered garments that speak to you of your life’s journey, you can have them re-made to fit your current lifestyle. That jacket that you scored in the springtime in Galloway? Get a silk lining installed for the winter weather. The ceremonial shirt that tore in the festivities that were brilliant but hard on fabric? Get it expertly mended. Your fraying hiking jacket? Repaired! Save the life of the clothes that bring back memories by having them restyled and repaired and enjoy them for years to come.
The Bespoke Lifestyle
You would not read someone else’s words of love to your paramour. Nor would you serve tamales out of a can. You have standards. Everyday creativity is part of your character. For this reason, you should consider the bespoke lifestyle. Navigate to this website to find out your options on tailor-made men’s fashion. Whether you are remodeling and restyling the new-to-you sartorial heirloom, the proud vintage treasure, or purchasing a bespoke suit there is nothing like have a garment custom tailored to your vision and your physique.
Honoring the Past
If you are fortunate enough to have inherited your Uncle Harry’s smoking jacket, your grandfather’s navy pea coat, or your dad’s wedding tuxedo, and you love the basic fabric and the lines of the garment and you treasure its history, take it to be custom tailored and get the look that speaks of the garment’s story and tells of the future. Whether it’s modifying a label or taking in a waist, the customizing of a quality garment that you love lets you wear your history into the next chapter of its life and yours.
