Who am I?
My name is Clément, I'm 21 years old, and I have been dressing according to the sartorial codes for about two years now. If I were to categorize my approach, I would classify it as classic and conservative.
My taste for sartorial art comes first and foremost from my passion for beauty, craftsmanship, art, everything that is well made, and almost eternal after all.
I am sure that being well dressed is close to paramount. I came to that conclusion during my high school years, and I started wearing the basic off-the-rack suits that you can find pretty much everywhere. Back then, I knew nothing about the existence of the sartorial world, let alone all the community surrounding it. Therefore, I used to wear glued-lining jackets, and made colour choices that could use some improvement.
However, I was lucky enough to have my mother, who has always been a reference in terms of taste for me, guiding me towards brands offering suits that had no synthetic fabrics within their composition. Despite being stylistically perfect, at least I was wearing something with a sufficient quality.
I accompanied my (very) tight suits with very basic white or light-coloured trainers. Anyway, I was the typical profile of the young person who discovered the world of suits without really having dug deeper than the ready-to-wear he could find within a radius of twenty kilometres.
A year goes by and I still wear the suit quite regularly, not necessarily very well, but still. I was now in my first year of higher education. Even then, I had already received the traditional remarks like :
"The suit looks very haughty".
"You don't seem approachable"
To tell the truth, I don't blame them, it's true that my style was rather austere to say the least. I only wore a black or grey suit. It didn't necessarily make people want to come and talk to me.
In the middle of the year, COVID hits the world and we are confined. Back in my hometown, and during long sleepless nights spent on YouTube, I discover the person who will embark me on what will be a most rewarding adventure.
As you may have guessed, I discovered Hugo Jacomet through his Sartorial Talks. I exhausted all the content of his channel in less than 3 nights, if my memory serves me well. All the videos seemed more interesting than the others. So I decided to learn more about this art, to abandon my old suits and to totally transform my wardrobe.
In my articles you will discover the journey I have taken, the mistakes I have made, the brands I have tried, my regrets, my best decisions, and so much more.
Thank you for reading and see you soon.
