Shirt as Example

Building and maintaining a shirt wardrobe is a sartorial journey, one encompassing fit, form, make, material, color and texture. The shirt is felt by the wearer and seen by everyone else, and when done right touches both's hearts. A higher collar. Longer points. More spread. Three millimeters here, 3/4" there. The details are subtle, but curiosity brings about experimentation and refinements are made from shirt to shirt. Tastes, desires and whims evolve. Maybe a darker shade of blue and a fine check this time around.

Ultimately, each shirt has its own personality and brings with it its own experiences. And with each shirt the wearer learns something about the shirt and themselves. A journey indeed.
