JKISSI : Style, in my opinion can be defined as your body being a blank canvas where you have the choice to make a personal statement to the outside world. There are a number of various parts that accompany your style, such as making your outfits into a body of art by incorporating palettes and textures. There is a distinct difference between style and fashion, which I think people get confused without even knowing so. The majority of our newer readers are probably unaware that I and Travis weren’t always dressed this way. This idea originally stemmed from a previous blog post we posted up about the elements of the “WDYWT” ( What Did You Wear Today ) around individual fashion forums. The thought of myself wearing anything similar to what I wear today four years ago would’ve made me laugh at myself. The important aspect about evolution in style is that it doesn’t occur overnight, it’s more of series of events that happen to you over time. Personally, for me it went from “I could never wear a button up shirt“ to “Ok, I like this , but I could never tuck in my shirt into my pants” and it kept continuing from there. This kind of thought really widens your eyes to different ways of incorporating things you see into your style. It’s often in interviews and general questions people ask “Who am I inspired by? I constantly answer that ordinary people who walk the street with distinctive style inspire me.
Even though my sense of style has changed, there is still multiple stacks of sneaker boxes in my room. I still love sneakers, but as cliche as this sounds I’m not in love with them. I recently did a post titled “Losing My ‘Sole’” which was kind of a farewell to the sneaker game, and everything involved. This post is not relaying the message that everyone needs to alter their style at one point, but it would be a good idea!
I personally feel like so many people could relate to us, and that’s why the site attracts people of all demographics from all over the world. The site has seemed to be on the same parallel as our style, it has changed dramatically from when Travis and I first started. We tried to increase the importance of content and presentation of the site in general , and it seems to be working. Working, something we won’t stop doing definitely more to come the table.
