I didn't really plan on getting too deep into my various sartorial resolutions for the year ahead on Sart Inc, but plans often change unexpectedly. And when you come across something so in line with what you're trying to do, well, said plans change ever quicker than normal. So, what am I trying to do in 2011? It's time for my sportswear to "get grown", in a nutshell. I will be talking about this at considerable length via a separate avenue soon, but let me quickly break things down. It seems that the culmination of what I have been trying to do with my wardrobe and personal style for the past year or so is coming to a head in 2011. I'm not talking about suiting up everyday of the week, but I am talking about stepping up my casual outfits with more "formal" elements - more jackets, more ties, trousers, generally nicer shirts and more layering. My goal is to present an image and cultivate a personal look that has practically been abandoned here in The States, but is still thriving in Europe amongst the style set. Why this? For starters, my personal taste has been headed in that direction for quite a while and I believe it is time to commit to the best of my ability. Not to mention, those whose style I admire the most do this effortlessly and I feel like taking a sincere crack at it. So, for me, 2011 is all about grown man sportswear - keeping things short of wearing a suit on the regular, but still put together at the same time. If that previous statement makes absolutely no sense to you I totally understand, which is why I have provided some handy examples courtesy of Edwin (who happens to be running my favorite Tumblr right now). Sartoria Partenopea has my ideal aesthetic down pat. While some of these outfits are incredibly loud (something I tend to avoid for the most part) they still illustrate the idea of elevated sportswear done very, very well. The kits below are far from formal, yet present a very solid, mature image. Join me or scoff at me. It's all good. Just try to be better in 2011. That's the message. For more information on Sartoria Partenopea Jeremy has you covered, obviously.
