Dapper 101 – Eye of the beholder

I recently had a conversation with a good friend of mine. We were talking about what we were wearing that morning and where we got each item from. The conversation evolved into where to buy clothes of great quality without having to break the bank to do so.

People tend to spend a lot of money on brand name clothing. Some might understand the quality of the fabric and simply appreciate the craftsmanship; others just have a taste level for expensive things, to each their own.

One thing I continue to enjoy as I learn from each experience is, you don’t have to spend money on brand name clothing or at high end stores for quality apparel. You just have to be willing to look and invest the time to find the quality at everyday places.

This brings us to tip# 7 – Eye of the beholder

Sartorial Sunday 7 (1)


Whether you head to a thrift store, salvation army, Target, Macy’s, Old Navy etc. You can find some good pieces within your budget, if you take the time to see what some places offer. I see it as playing where’s Waldo, you never know what you’re looking forward until you find it; sometimes you don’t have to walk into a store aiming to find a specific thing, the beauty is in the adventure.

Hopefully you can try this the next time you go shopping.
