I had to share this because I agree wholeheartedly with what Tom Ford had to say about personal style…
“Style is a personal thing. It is what defines you. It is not only about clothes (in fact, it is rarely about clothes) but is about the way that one handles oneself with other people. To treat people kindly, to look them in the eye, to shake their hand firmly and to try to always be proud of ones actions are key elements of style as far as I am concerned. With regards to clothes and dress I think that it is important to find out what you feel comfortable in [I am not talking about physical comfort here] and then to make that look your signature. Personal style, comes from consistency. Know yourself, know what you like and what you don’t like and then build a look around those likes and dislikes. Remain true to your own taste.”
-Tom Ford in response to being voted OUT Magazine’s Best Dressed Gay Man
I think he is 100% correct. What are your thoughts on personal style?
