"Matt, I have two pieces of advice that will go a long way to helping you. 1. Remember it's better to know and have style than the latest fashion. Style never goes out, fashion does. 2. Find out who you are and let that determine and guide your…"

Seasonal Fashion

Hi everyone.  In the last few months, I've really begun to gain an interest in men's fashion and I'm trying to learn "the rules" if you will.  I'm sure this site has enough articles but in particular I'm looking for articles on seasonal fashion basics, like what kinds of fabrics and colors are typically used for the different seasons.  Does anyone know of any articles about this sort of thing?  Thanks very much.See More

"My daughter just taught me this.  Now I do it when I get to the end of a story and I realize its not having the intended impact on the audience.  At least then I get SOME reaction."
