The Master

Break the rules

The master has come up through the ranks. He started by studying, learning. Then he applied his knowledge, made some mistakes, and learned from them. Now, he know the rules, knows when to follow them, and knows that some can be broken. How do you know when you've made it to this level? I'll let you know when I get there.

One defining characteristic of this guy is that he knows his personal style. He knows what looks good on him. He may have tried to pull off the Italian sprezz look and the streetwear-meets-tailoring look before accepting the fact hes a traditional dresser, and owning it.

The suggestions below are just that; suggestions. You know your personal style, you know what works for you and what doesn't.
