BASIC MATTER

Style is a question of charm, not nationality. It is not true that French men have more allure or style than men of other nationality. It’s just that they dress with more personality. They don’t follow dress codes and sometimes they mix things in a way they shouldn’t.

As for me, I like my clothes simple, laid-back but not disheveled, comfortable and soft without being washed-out or overly distressed. Versatile-you can wear them day or night. ( 1st and 3rd photo from http://www.thesartorialist.blogspot.com/)

Here are photos of my visual mood board of blue, gray white, purple and all things basic:
I deserve a great pair of driving shoes this Christmas or probably next month. Purple driving shoes from Tods ( Photo credit: Thesartorialist.blogspot.com)Basic collared shirts from Fred Perry ( Ralph Lauren, Lacoste and Le Tigre too)

I feel the same way about basic collared shirts. Plain ones in navy or black are essential. And you can get Le Tigre really cheap over at SM! In all colors too.

At 300-400 pesos a shirt, it doesn't really matter! Maybe it's the local version so technically, it's not fake? Haha I dunno.

I'd love to have more driving shoes but I'm really having second thoughts with getting a pair in suede as they're bound to get ruined in Manila and I won't get to wear them as much... agh!

But still I want one. haha
