I think I've just found a good balance where I can look sharp and smart in casual clothing, and I have found a style that makes me feel good. I now feel like I dress in a manner that is appropriate to my age and lifestyle.

Currently my olive Kapital jacket and Yuketen shoes but I have a soft spot for Trickers
