I had no clue what defined men’s style until I spent weeks with some of the most well-dressed men in Fort Worth. The theme was consistent and simple — their identity is closely tied to what they wear, and they only wear what they feel most comfortable in. Oncologist Dr. Asad Dean put it best when he said we have one life to live so why should we hold back when expressing who we are, whether colorful or conventional? And entrepreneur Jonathan Morris does not dress for others. He may even skip an event if the invite suggests attire that doesn’t fit his taste. Business casual? No thanks. His question: what does that even mean? One man’s business is another man’s casual. One thing is for sure: when dressed his best, each one of these men stands a little taller.
