"Don't just count the years, make the years count." - Ernest Meyers.
As I create this post, I find myself reflecting on the past year. Disclaimer - there may be a bit of randomness in this post. About a year ago, I decided to get a bit more serious with the blog and in the time since, I've definitely been blessed. I've had an opportunity to connect with some great people whose work and/or style I admire and better developed what I'll call my #menswear network. I've also focused in more on refining my personal style - separating what I think looks great online or on other cats from what works for me.
The game plan is to keep this thing rolling as long as there is someone out there who gets value from it. I 'm going to keep working on balancing building a solid wardrobe on a budget with quality pieces. While everything I post about may not fit into the easily affordable category, if there is a way to pick it up for less that I know about, I'll definitely share.
Personally, I've had opportunities created and doors opened for me in ways that made it abundantly clear that the Lord has my back and for that I am grateful. Switching careers unexpectedly in the middle of last year had me in a state of flux while I got settled into my new field and also temporarily halted the blogging. Since the beginning of this year however, things have been moving along with the numbers of visits to the blog growing steadily, developing new relationships right here in St. Louis and some great exposure through GQ and Details.
