Can anyone else not believe February is almost over?
March is at that distance that’s like when you see someone on the street but they’re not close enough to wave yet but you both have noticed it’s not close enough to wave, so now you’re just walking toward each other, staring and waiting for the moment to wave...
Have you gotten on the craze of “Marie Kondo-ing” your house? For those that are unfamiliar, Marie Kondo is an organizing consultant and author. Her show “Tidying Up With Marie Kondo” on Netflix features her visiting with multiple families and the ways in which she helps them cleanse their homes. Most episodes get emotional quickly...
Let’s talk about inseams. It’s the awkward measurement running up your inner thigh that you’ve probably heard one or two jokes about (especially if you’re in the “watched every episode of Friends” club).
It’s important to note that regardless of when this blog goes live, I am writing it with my cold frozen fingers in Chicago on a day that is -20 degrees. This weather is literally arctic weather. Winds and temperatures that are normally over the arctic circle have shifted over to the midwest. And yes, it is horrifying.

I am pleased and proud to announce that I’ve done it. I’ve found the haircut. My haircut. Well, technically I didn’t find it, Corrine - the wonderful human who cuts my hair - did. But boy has it been a journey to get here.
Just like a good barber, a good tailor is indispensable. Anyone who has junk in the trunk and shops in the men’s department knows a simple truth: those clothes don’t always fit right through the waist and hips.
There is something undeniably iconic about denim. The utilitarian appeal of a tough material we can wear like armor to face the day. The way it is made to take a beating and seems to only get better and better the more we wear it.
Flash forward to this moment right now. Writing at my desk, Queen on my spotify, backwards baseball hat back on my head, and a feeling of gratitude for being out of the closet. When Vicky asked me to write a blog about this limited time jean release I thought first of the little tomboy version of me.
We know what you’re thinking, “I’ve just bought a Button-Up from Dapper Boi, I can’t believe I have this awesome shirt in my personal collection, and I cannot decide where to wear it ﬁrst!” Don’t worry, we’ve put together a list of suggestions for you.
You did the coolest thing for yourself that you could’ve done - you loved your gayness enough to tell the world. And that is beautiful. In fact, take a moment now to bask in the greatness and courage that is you. The hard part is over. You’ve realized your gay, you’ve come out to your friends, parents/the people who raised you. Now comes the best part: dressing as the queer dream you’ve always wanted to be.
