i love a man in a uniform -
but i've recently been pondering the possibility of a "uniform" for day to day.
not having to go into an office,
where the "jeans and a blazer / pants and a tee" attitude made getting dressed pretty easy
(there is no uniform for creatives in my field, but there was always a desire on my part to dress it up a bit, not treat the position with any disrespect.)
has made my day to day
a bit of a dilemma.
my upstairs neighbor is a writer,
and laments the "sweatpant" issue
which i gradually began to understand.
when the days bleed a bit, it's far too easy for a guy to slide into sweats, a tee, anything that makes it easy.
but i found that made me depressed.
i LOVE clothes.
i have started mandating a dress up moment
and hence, the uniform idea.
i've spent the last few years limiting the palette i buy to colors that work for me,
that make me feel powerful.
it's a very navy and stone colored world.
now i've narrowed to shapes, pieces, labels even
that fit, marry, and make me feel
powerful, comfortable, adult.
does this constitute a uniform? and if so, do other guys find themselves
not in a rut,
but in a refined form of presentation?
