The Decision

I have to admit I have not been noted for being the world’s most stylish person.

I would normally wear a combination of standard denim jeans — Joker — and check shirt or High Street polo — Esprit — with some mountain wear like North Face or Mammut and a pair of battered old Campers.

It didn’t help that at about 106kg I was about 15-16 kilos over a vaguely normal weight 3 months ago.

In summary, I looked like crap.

And when I went shopping with my wife or her sister in fashionable stores, I would just say “this stuff doesn’t suit me”.

All that changed when I:

  1. lost 15 kilos in 3 months
  2. walked into the main Giorgio Armani in Florence
  3. tried on some Giorgio Armani pants, not ever meaning to buy anything
  4. listened to Roberto, who made me try some shirts and jackets too.

Oh boy…

Is that me in the mirror? Seriously? What the hell just happened?

And that’s when I realized I had to change.

So I made a decision: I will buy only the best quality clothing possible from this day forward.

And I’m going to start right now.
