What you (still) don’t see me wearing in 2024

Moccasins and loafers

For me, these shoes do not fit my style. I’m not comfortable in them. Aside, they do not got the support I need for my flat feet.

Things I changed my mind about, in 2024

I will (not) wear pink

My linen summer suit from Suit Supply is a beautiful sand-colored, unstructured ensemble, perfect for more casual occasions. However, I found the shirts in my wardrobe to be a little bland. While a linen white shirt paired decently, amidst the brown and white ensemble, it seemed too understated. I had been searching for a turquoise linen shirt without much luck. I decided to experiment and tried on one of my girlfriend’s garments; she favors pink. Holding it in front of the mirror over my clothes, it surprisingly complemented the outfit well.

Subsequently, I ordered a light pink shirt from Suit Supply, utilizing my measurements already in the system, making the process quite straightforward.

Recently, I visited Suit Supply again for some trousers. I opted for taupe trousers and had them adjusted. When paired with my brown Chelseas and the pink shirt, the ensemble really came together. Consequently, I can confidently say that I now enjoy wearing pink.

Things I changed my mind about, in 2023 

I will (not) wear Chelsea boots

One of the things I’ve tried often enough but never worked for me was Chelsea boots. Every time I tried them on with a pair of jeans, they just didn’t look right. That was until last year when I spotted a pair with a snake-leather pattern in the corner of a shoe store. I thought, why not give it another shot? My girlfriend frowned at me; I was wearing light brown jeans-type trousers at the moment. Surprisingly, they worked… for a change.

Not only did they work for a change, but I also began to really enjoy wearing them. These boots can be versatile, fitting into both formal and less formal attire. Obviously, the pair I got isn’t suitable for formal events, but the style of boot itself can be. Moreover, the boots improved my posture, as I was once advised by a podiatrist to opt for firmer shoes that provide support. These boots ticked all the boxes – comfortable, classy, and supportive. They went from zero to hero in my book.
