An account of the author’s shifts in clothing choice over his collegiate years (to the best of his memorized ability).
The Best Way to Fit In
Is to play the role everyone is all too familiar with
A guy going off to work for his family
A Sartorial Advantage
Kid has monk straps at 6
I can’t imagine him at 31
Five reasons to give your black, grey, and navy a well deserved season off.
Is this real?
Does this mean one day fraternities will be trading their hoodies for rumpled cotton blazers, boat shoes for Common Projects, and letter pins for engraved tie bars? That clip—mind you—would of course be fastened over a nubby wool tie.
Did that guy actually recommend J.Crew suits (THEY MAKE SUITS???) over their lesser priced, boxier mall chain counterparts? And yes, you did see a fraternity member reference Japan outside of anime, video games and oddball pitchers.
I hope the next letter dissects the price point geography of Topman versus Asos (sorry Uniqlo, $90 cashmere only gets you so far) and how stores like Club Monaco don’t stand a chance once a guy figures out Barneys has this thing called the Warehouse Sale.
11/12 UPDATE: It is real. Brings back memories of college days trying to collect used H&M shirts off eBay and Diesel Zathans from Buffalo Exchange—oh to be young again.

Just Like Your Best Friend
Your favorite shoes have seen it all.
The struggles of the past deepen those scuffs you secretly love and joys of the present continue warming even the least memorable highlights.
Keeping in touch is as easy or difficult as finding time to pull them out of your closet. But until then they’ll sit, similar to any friendship interrupted by distance or conflict, eagerly awaiting to catch up in the future.
Because they already know better days lie ahead as long as you’re in this together.
But beauty reaches for navy
every single time

Some say chivalry is dead but I just think a few knights have yet to receive their armor
This lad found what works for him
