i was thinking about what inspires me; what makes me dress the way i do, and even if its a conscience decision or not-the thing that defines my style. because as we all know, in part, our style does do an apt job at defining who we are, in some sense at least. i wear alot of ties, bowties, suspenders, etc., and began to think how common it is for people to do so nowadays, and began to think about where this look derives from. then it all came clearly obvious-the ivy league nerd, that doesnt even have to be ivy league. i done some thinking and wrote a dandy little article on my blog. take a look, comment, and think. maybe we could all stand to ponder where and why our personal style turns out the way it does.
