Fashion has always been significant in my day-to-day life. As an 18 year old student who has plenty of time impressing people with his personal style and designer inspirations, I was determined to create a page dedicated to my style, aiming it predominantly toward young adult males, yet my love of smart style clothing aims towards fashionable men of any age . I named the blog ‘Suit&Tied’, simply because I believe when a Gentleman owns or wears his first suit; that is the day he feels like a confident man, and ultimately a fashionable icon of success. Success could be seen in many ways, this could be through hard-work and struggle to the top,people like myself who aspire to be a fashionable man when older or this could for those who are fashion-conscious and love to reboot their wardrobe every now and again.
Other than suits, I love the idea of dressing confident. If I do not wear clothes which display my character/personality or make me feel good, then I’ll be in a horrible mood. It is the total opposite when I wake up ready to tackle the day in some trendy outfits, which makes me feel good all day. I would describe my personal style as a variety and mix of everything, which allows me to keep it interesting everyday. From preppy to effortless, to street style and casual vintage, I love to have fun whenever I go to a special occasion, or even if it’s a trip to the movies. I believe that men’s fashion has increased in popularity so much. I am an avid reader of GQ magazine and I never fail to get style tips from there, which is very recommended.
I personally find my style inspirations from fashion designers, high street style and celebrities. Current designers I love include Burberry Prorsum,George Clinton, Ted Baker, Reiss, Alexander McQueen, House of Holland, Zara Man, Topman, Urban Outfitters, Vintage brands and more. My current male celebrity style is inspired by popular icons such as Ryan Gosling, Andrew Garfield, Eddie Redmayne, Zac Efron, David Beckham, Robert Pattinson, Justin Timberlake, David Gandy and Kanye West, just to name a few!
Hopefully my constant updates on what interest me, through images, videos, articles and reviews of everything fashion related will help those finding their own unique style, become confident men through fashion.
