In my previous post on Caitlyn Jenner we seen how inspirational her transformation was so I thought it was only fitting to continue with that theme for now. Now I know I speak about a great deal of sartorial knowledge, but if you've become the go-to man among your peers for style advice and set the agenda in terms of how to dress for a night out or work, then perhaps you’re running low on modish pearls of wisdom. In which case, breathe a sweet sigh of relief, because I am here to try an help you with some of my favourite quotes about fashion and style – all of which you can pass off as your own musings after a few beers down the pub.
