I like to dress up. For some reason my clothing has prompted many strong opinions on the matter. In this post I'd like to put some misconceptions to rest.
Will Fratalli is a fictional character. He's a blind tutor to a recently deformed kid that is obsessed with his appearance. This character manages to voice my opinion on the matter perfectly.
I don't care about what people think about how I look. I do, however, care about what I think about how I look.
I am fortunate enough to be able to see and fortunate enough to have a choice in the matter of what I get to wear. I am young and lucky to be healthy. This is the perfect time to enjoy being able to dress up however I want.
I love to wear suits, so I wear suits. That is all.
- Doesn't it make formal occasions less special?
Maybe, but why should only formal occasions be special? For me, every day is special.
- Aren't suits really uncomfortable?
No, they're like a sweat suit over your entire body, but one that looks really good.
- So, you always wear suits?
No, of course not.
- You look like you consider yourself superior to others.
That's really not my problem. Again: I don't care what you think about it.
- Do you aspire to be like a certain (fictional!) womanizer?
No, that's ridiculous.
