You know how sometimes when someone comments on your very own personal style, either positively or negatively, you wish you had the perfect phrase to respond to their comments?
Well, it has happened to me too and that’s why I decided I should surf the web, browse a few sites and come up with a list of the best quotes I could find.
Some of these quotes are not necessarily 100% related to menswear as such, but I feel they are related to ideas that go hand in hand with style, so I decided to add them as well. I know you won’t mind.
My idea is to keep growing this list with new quotes I find, and of course, feel absolutely free to comment and let me know of other quotes that would fit this list . Hey, if you have a great phrase you came up with, please also let me know and I’ll be glad to feature it too!
So I guess when you don’t know how to say it, why not just go ahead and quote the experts? Without further ado…
