I, over the last year or so, have turned into a high street fashion kind of guy. It is a little depressing buying all these mass-produced-in-China goods, and they can become a little drab, but it’s convenience shopping. I just make sure what I wear is clean and ironed, corduroys, a fresh pressed shirt and desert-boots sort of thing.

Previous times I was a bit more off-beat, mixing and matching colours, trousers and skirts, fedoras and baseball caps. Free and easy. I actually won a best dressed competition at my workplace, I wasn’t expecting it, and on the day that I won I was dressed completely conventionally, which perhaps was an omen for how I would turn out in future times.

I have a cupboard with some designer wear. Shirts and jackets and coats, including my favourite Romeo Gigli blazer. I let them sit in there now-a-days, waiting for the occasion. I don’t know if I can pull it off anymore though, as I get older I start to wonder. Losing a few pounds and a proper haircut would probably help.

In the meantime I steer clear of any formal events. Sounds superficial doesn’t it…but the truth is I don’t own a tie, and have no inclination to buy one. So I am sorry you won’t see me at the ‘jacket and tie’ event, I can’t compete. It makes me feel a bit of a loser, but at least I am paying attention to my feelings.

How important are clothes to you? Describe your style, if you have one, and tell us how appearance impacts how you feel about yourself.

    1. Thanks, I was feeling a little low about it, anyhow, as long as I am covered up ready for the rain…
