Boy's Toys

Menswear -  you think it is really that simple: shirt, pants, jacket and shoes. That's all to it, right? That was my exact thought when I made the move into the men's world of fashion. "This will be easier than women's. I am going to totally dominate this game in my sleep. It's my world now!"

Spoiler Alert: I was in for a rude awakening and I am obviously ignorant.

The science behind neck collar shape and size, button sequencing and determining which one you should leave unbutton, the way the arm of a shirt sits on the wrist, the hem line of the pants, the length of a shirt... when should it be tucked in or or not, and is red a scary color to wear? What in the world did I get myself into? You guys are all crazy.

And sometimes, it drives me crazy in a sense that there is so much to learn. And it really makes me appreciate the guys who can put themselves together, which makes me think: If I were a dude, I would totally wear that.
