The allure of menswear has everything to do with men. The fabrics, the components, the sensibility, the scents. It all maybe a figment of order, but it's such a beautiful expression collectively.
When Fall rolls around, I get inspired to bring out my small collection of ties and bowties, shine my leather shoes, and there's even something sensual and a bit edgy about wearing men's cologne - not the unisex kind, but the REAL kind, made for a man.
It's not about cross dressing, but there is a sense of strength and structure when incorporating these elements into an otherwise ladylike ensemble. Plaids, tweeds, brogues, vests, a pocket watch, Scotch with a splash. None of this is new. Which is precisely the point.
