I thought that this was a rather interesting lead in to a post about men’s clothing stores in Paris
I’m not going to lie, I’m a pretty snappy dresser.
Brash? Yes. An attempt to assert space above — a place where you might want to be. Let’s go further with this brash attitude
And this doesn’t go unnoticed. On the occasions where I’d have to dress up for work events at my former job, I’d hardly walked in the door when my female colleagues would be asking me where I got my jacket/shoes/tie. They’d tell me that they wished their boyfriends would have the guts or imagination to pull off the type of look that I was rocking.
The intent, of course, is to provoke envy. The brash attitude has a basis in experience. Experiences that you, as a more ordinary male might want for yourself. So what is next?
I did toy with the idea of founding dressmyboyfriend.com, but that never got off the ground!
Why bring up a failed start up attempt? I think it is meant as a badge of coolness. The brash young man knows what young people do these days. Enough fooling around! Now for the clincher!
Although it pains me to do so, I’m going to share with you below some of my favorite brands so that you too can be stopped in the street and asked where you got your flashy trousers or off-the-hook shirts
That’s it Your ticket to paradise!!!! And the pants? Try these on for size!
Now the closer
But please, don’t be going round telling everyone or else I’ll have to renew my wardrobe. Now there’s an idea…
Yes, you are now in the secret society. Keep it exclusive! Keep this sort of look
Or this one
what is he laughing at?
In fact, I liked the recs! I would check out these stores on my next trip. Would you?
Going further, I like the idea of traveling to places for the purpose of connecting with great men’s clothing purveyors. Not just the stores where you pick up a pair of jeans,pay and bolt. But connecting with people who care about quality fabrics and styles and who will discuss with you how they think you could and should look.
The cool thing is that each destination offers a different sort of opportunity. Paris is different than London. Milan different than either of the two. And of course, there are many more!
Stay tuned for my irreverent but fun take on the global men’s clothing scene!
