This is a glimpse of Corey's closet.
Hey, fellas – it’s time to man up and shop.
OK, that’s the only spin I promise in this blog post. But the news got me thinking: it’s another milestone in the continued evolution of men actually CARING about how they dress.
I mean, I grew up in Northern California wearing an oversized football jersey over a pair of beat-up, tan cords. Like, every day. And my father, an electrician, continues to go to work pairing a stainless steel Thermos with a big, boxy T that looks like it was cut at Home Depot.
But these days, we’re nearly all comfortable slinging man bags over our shoulders, wearing slim-fit shirts (find me in Apparel News here) and actually noticing when our loafers look like they just survived a car fire. We’re not exactly fedora-and-suit polished, but we know how to rock a dress shirt and jeans for any occasion. And for all you dudes still rolling in baggy jeans that expose your red boxers: PULL THOSE THINGS UP.
Anyhow, the point: we may want to pretend we’re too Regular Guy to shop a website that promises an “edited assortment of the hottest trends” (did I just say that?), but we’re not. We’re already there, wearing 7 for All Mankind and curious about newcomers like Scotch and Soda.
