So rather than make some completely uneducated guesses about the course of bow-ties (trending downward), workwear (petering out) and 70s style (oh yeah, it's back), I'm just going to make some resolutions of my own and do my damnedest to keep them.
1. I'm going to start posting more frequently
In 2011 I really let my post frequency fall right of the rails, so I'm going to correct-course and try to put out no less than one post a week. Not for my own sake, of course (Lord knows where I'll find the time), but because I'm told that people generally enjoy reading what I write, and there are still things left to be said about men's style.
2. I'm going to upgrade the site
When I started this site a couple of years back, my primary motivation for using this template was that it was free. That is pretty much it. I was in my last year of school and scraping buy to pay tuition. Now I've been out of school for a couple of years, accumulated some wealth (If I am to be generous in calling it such), and I'm going to put in the investment to make this look enjoyable to read, even when that belies the reality.
3. I'm going to bring focus to the site
For the last couple of years that I've been putting this site out, I've posted always on matters of menswear, but they have lacked a cohesion. To an extent this has been because of various experiments I've embarked on to find my niche in the ever expanding morass of menswear blogs. Having felt like I've found that, I'm going to focus on education. I'll be writing on education for men at all levels of style, as I'll outline soon. The new slogan is "Style For Every Man", and I'm going to hold true to that, genuinely educating men on the world of style that is available at their mouseclick. Preventing them from being dressed by the internet, while addressing them via the internet.
Those are the plans for 2012, so hang tight. I know I'm scared. (But mostly because my therapist told me to be... I'm starting to think he's not very good).
As always, thanks for reading and get ready to start checking back a lot more often.
