Socks Or Cereal?

Nobody wants to be that guy who wears white crew socks with a suit. The same way nobody wants to be that guy who wears dress socks during workouts purely because they were the only clean pair in the drawer. I've waffled on in the past, but socks are literally one of the most essential articles of clothing. But time and time again, their importance, function and aesthetics are often overlooked. When you think about it, its almost like how most of us overlook cereal in the morning - Its importance and function is without question. To be honest, I can't believe I made that comparison, but in this case, it works (I think).

Who Are You To Judge?

So here's the thing, I absolutely hate washing my jeans (regardless of how often I wear them). To be honest, I probably only wash them about twice and that's the moment I take them out of the packaging. But before you call the sanitation police, let me explain. I like to wear my jeans fairly slim so the issue is two-fold: (1) I hate how stiff jeans are after you wash them and they are always left with this weird detergent feel, but (2) It feels so good when the original fit has been restored after the wash. I get so much stick for this whole ordeal but I actually cant be the only one who doesn't wash their jeans, right?

You Won't Miss Me, Kid

There are a lot of things I'm not great at, like winning at card games or using my 'inside voice', but I feel like I can dress myself. But hold on before you write me off as some sort of egoist. I am in no way a style savant but I do know what makes me feel good. My style is like an extension of my personality - that's my schtick. I will always aim for that casual (somewhat) boy next door type; I don't ruffle feathers but I know what I know. And honestly, I think that is how style should feel. But anyway, that's enough nonsensical blabber out of me.

Young Thug

There are very few things that will put a smile on my face like spending time with my closest mates. I mean... c'mon... you can't beat some quality time with people who just get you. And to be honest, bonus points if you end up laughing uncontrollably. It's funny though how you spend so much time with certain people and you end up picking up each others traits. Y'all a pack of young, thieving thugs.

Something New, Something Blue

If I’ve said it once then I’ve surely said it a hundred times (to be honest, I probably haven't even said it out loud before) - I actually cannot resist a matching set. Maybe that has something to do with my childhood? Although having a twin would have been chaotic. Or maybe it is because matching sets are fresh as hell? I guess we will never know. All I know is that I am here for it.

'M' Is For. . .

'M' is for: mazed, manic, meticulous, mischievous. 'M' is for moody. To be honest these are all adjectives that probably describe me. But no, its obviously for 'Mark My Style'. A few years ago I shut down my first blog because I wasn't enjoying it one bit. The fun and excitement had just vanished and I just couldn't get those creative juices flowing but I missed it at the same time, you know? For the life of me though, I could not think of a new blog name until it slapped me in the face while I was lying on the bed. It's gas how things find a way of sorting themselves when you just leave them be. Anyway, if I'm needed I'l be on the bed waiting for the next big break through (get your mind out of the gutter, lads).

Members Only, Ye?

Lets talk about Flamingos. Mainly because they are on the back of my t-shirt, though. Honesty, right? They are intriguing creatures - they stand on one leg, they're pink and they are one of the most sought after spirit animals. Why the one leg though? Obviously its for warmth but its more interesting to think they are withholding a bunch of secrets. And whats with them always being in a massive group? In fairness though, when we all flock around our friends its like a cheeky members club too.
