not to ruffle your feathers, but change is here
“LIFE should never be color-by-numbers,” said the musician Ben Harper. “We’re the only animal in the kingdom that can change its feathers. Why not take full advantage of that?” --from the NYTimes article, Birds of a Feather.
I love this quote and I'm happy to see so many men starting to take a greater interest in the way they present themselves to the world. With high end barber and hat shops popping up all over San Francisco, there seems to be a revival of mid-1950s sensibility (perhaps inspired by Mad Men?) that places an emphasis on wearing high-quality, tailored clothing that both looks and feels great.
Need new feathers? Setting up an appointment for a shirt fitting with me today and I'll work with you to design a unique shirt that represents your personality.
