My next car may not be an Italian exotica, but it will be navy

My next car may not be an Italian exotica, but it will be navy

What are the chances (fixed)
 
I had some time between meetings today so I dropped in to see Ethan @ Herringbone..
We both had very similar components but executed in our own “personal style”. Pug & Mug..
Ethan then pointed out that we both had the same suit from last year, & both had regimental ties - again by Herringbone.
Let’s take a step back & analyse the concept of “personal style”.
This may strike to the bone for some, but I hope you will appreciate & understand the analysis.
There is nothing wrong with having role models or being inspired, but there is a line that should never be crossed & that is to imitate.
Sure they say imitation is the highest form of flattery, but I beg to differ.. Who is being flattered if the execution is not natural?
One has to learn to develop a style that matches their persona.
Back to the navy suit both Ethan & I had on today - the two main differences are the size of the suit & our physical dimensions.
What’s important here is that we look different & we ensured that we only wear what FITS & then tailored accordingly.
Example: 99% of the time I walk into a store, they sales associate will size me up at least 1 size too big.. Even with shoes!
Most may have noticed that I wear the same brands if I choose OTR - that is because I now know which brands fit me & what to look for. The lesson here is that not everything fits, so take your time & when you do find “X” stick with it or BUY UP, as there will be change.
Take another look again & see how Ethan & I have taken ownership..
Look at our tie direction (even though we both had the same knot)..
Look at our PS..
Look at our shirt collar shapes..
 
Women dread walking into a room to be confronted by the same dress, shoes or hand-bag.. Yet most of men will easily wear a navy suit or a dinner suit & not think twice.. Why is that?
What do you think?
