What Day is Today??! #mfm

OMG I missed #mensfashionmonday!! I am so relaxed on this vacation that I had no idea what day it was. I realized it when I went to dinner at a friends house, and she asked about BornSassyandChic. I told her all about the blog and  #mensfashionmondays. She then asked what my post was for today...well, yesterday.

I looked at her, and corrected her, saying, "Today's Sunday...tomorrow is Monday silly." She looked at me like I'd gone insane and it was then that I realized that it was actually Monday!!

So, I apologize for forgetting my Monday post...but I don't regret that it's late because that means I am so relaxed and enjoying my time here on the beach. (I could also be distracted by some men in red...)

My cousin Matt has been dropping hints since he found out about #mensfashionmondays about being featured. Lucky for him, his not so subtle hints and the fact I've been with him non-stop for 2 weeks got him this week's spot.

Let's see what he had to say...

BornSassyandChic: Matt, why don’t you tell us a little about yourself.

Matt: I'm a painter

BSC: Do you have to dress a certain way for work?

Matt: No

(He's lucky he can wear whatever he wants to at work!! He could paint in a pair of coveralls or his underwear...someone lucked out with the work fashion :)

BSC: How would you describe your style?

Matt: Simple.

BSC: You travel a lot. Do your outfits change on where you are?

Matt: Not particularly.

BSC: How do you piece together your outfits?

Matt: Quickly.

BSC: If we were to take a peek in your closet, right now, what would we see?

Matt "Vetements." (A bad joke, but like their references, fashion shouldn't be taken too seriously.) See - http://www.racked.com/2016/3/2/11139622/what-is-vetements  for the English translation...

BSC: Where are your favorite places to shop?

Matt: Consignment shops. You can get Lanvin, Dries, Comme de Garçons, J.W. Anderson, and Margiela for Target prices.

BSC: What is one thing in your closet that you can’t live without?

Matt: Burn it all...

BSC: What makes an outfit? (Think in terms of shoes or accessories).

Matt: The man.

BSC: Do you base your outfit off of a specific article of clothing?

Matt: Not particularly.

BSC: Do you have a style icon? If so, who and why?

Matt: Old people. They either don't care and look great, or care quite a bit and look great... Old people. And, my sister.

BSC: What is your go-to outfit? (Your favorite thing to wear?)

Matt: Sweat shorts and a t-shirt, covered in paint.

BSC: What do you typically wear when you go out with your boys?

Matt: Trousers and a sweater.

BSC: What is your typical outfit for when you go out on a date?

Matt: Trousers and a sweater.

BSC: How do you feel about adding to your outfit with accessories?

Matt: A well-wound watch, nothing more.

BSC: Would you say you dress more to impress or for comfort?

Matt: Comfortable people are impressive.

BSC: What is one thing every man should have in his wardrobe?

Matt: Sweats you're willing to "loan." (For "loan" read "gift")

BSC: Do you enjoy shopping? Do you shop online?

Matt: Not particularly. And, no.

BSC: Do you try clothes on when you shop, or do you just buy them?

Matt: Try, always. 

BSC: Do you have a shoe fetish? If so, what type of shoe?

Matt: Common Projects.

BSC: Do you notice women and their sense of style?

Matt: Always.

BSC: What style on women gets them a second glance?

Matt: Remarkable style is more often linked to intellect than clothing.

BSC: Have you ever had a wardrobe malfunction?

Matt: Do spills count?

And then I hit him with some rapid fire questions! :)

BSC: Boxers or Briefs?

Matt: White briefs.

BSC: Board Shorts or Chubbies?

Matt: Swim trunks. 

He LIVES in these white and blue nautical swim trunks.

BSC: Ties or Bowties?

Matt: Ties, unless otherwise required.

BSC: Suspenders or Belts?

Matt: Belts. Although Mork looked pretty cool in suspenders.

BSC: Hats or Beanies?

Matt: Hats. Remember, they lose their purpose once indoors.

BSC: Beards or Clean Shaven?

Matt: Clean Shaven.

BSC: Nike or Adidas?

Matt: "Yeezy Yeezy Yeezy just jumped over Jumpman."

BSC: Anything else you’d like to tell the readers? This is your chance to let your Fashion God speak his mind!

Matt: Remember: All clothing is costume, and "all the world's a stage." ...Best to write your own play than to play in someone else's.

BSC: Well thank you Matt. You've been quite interesting with your answers.

Matt: No, thank you. I'm a huge fan of your blog... 

As you can all see, Matt is short and to the point with his answers. He is a man of few words with a simplistic style, yet still manages to outshine anyone on stage.
