I am completely obsessed with menswear (maybe because I am a little obsessed with men? It’s possible.). Unfortunately, it is often very boring especially when compared with women’s fashions. There are those particular men, however, who never cease to look amazing—whether they simply don a classic suit with confidence, try completely new styles, or find interesting patterns and details.
Instead of having one really huge post on different articles of menswear, I am going to be posting a series of pictures and thoughts on menswear in fashion right now, and in the past.
To start us off:
I saw this guy while walking around Pike Place Market in Seattle. Needless to say, I stopped and asked if I could take his picture!
Good job, sir. :) Slim-fitting jacket, great shoes and the hat all add up to make this a very refreshing outfit to see on the street.
“Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice. And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you.”—Ephesians 4:31-32
“well, first of all, you must realize that i worship you. second of all, at the expense of seeming repetitive, i love you. thirdly, and here i go again with my enormous command of language, i can’t live without you.”—richard burton
A few weeks ago, my dad handed me a paper that he’d printed out of my brother’s latest blog post. I noticed that it was entitled Childishness, and was a full page long, so I set it off to the side figuring I’d read it eventually.
This morning I remembered that everything my brother writes is incredibly profound and excellent advice, so I decided to go ahead and read it. Let me just say, it holds true to his usual form.
If you have a few minutes, go ahead and glance at it; you won’t be disappointed!
“The fact that I had a permanent fiancé was little compensation for his absence: I had never thought about it, but summer was Dill by the fishpool smoking string, Dill’s eyes alive with complicated plans to make Boo Radley emerge; summer was the swiftness with which Dill would reach up and kiss me when Jem was not looking, the longings we sometimes felt each other feel. With him, life was routine; without him, life was unbearable. I stayed miserable for two days.”—To Kill A Mockingbird
Today I sang the first stanza of Amazing Grace on the stage of Ryman Auditorium.
Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley, June Carter, Taylor Swift, Keith Urban, Houdini, Coldplay, Wilco and countless others have been on that stage and it was an awesome feeling to stand there and sing as they did.
The acoustics are fantastic in there! I didn’t sing loud enough to really fill the entire auditorium (mostly because there were a lot of people there and most of them were looking at me) but it felt so good, and I could really hear myself amplified. It’s supposed to have even better acoustics than Carnegie Hall. So cool.
That’s definitely something to cross off my bucket list (as well as sitting in Taylor’s dressing room)! … Maybe someday I’ll go back to give a performance. Who knows?
But every thought she had I heard from across the room If we were standing face to face I couldn’t find the words to say give me one more move I don’t even know her name I guess foolish prides to blame
Now I’m falling in love as she’s walking away and my heart won’t tell my mind to tell my mouth what it should say May have lost this battle, live to fight another day Now I’m falling in love as she’s walking away
As we walked, we were talking
I didn’t say half the things I wanted to.
Of all the girls tossing rocks at your window,
I’ll be the one waiting there even when it’s cold.
Hey Stephen, boy you might have me believing
I don’t always have to be alone.
'Cause I can't help it if you look like an angel,
Can’t help it if I want to kiss you in the rain, so
Come feel this magic I’ve been feeling since I met you
Can’t help it if there’s no one else.
