If I'm honest, most of my clients want to dress like a young Lupin the 3rd, so I'm lucky.

But it's all a culture of sameness. They all try to dress like Style Icons, but they really just all look alike. Once you know the right pieces of the wardrobe, you have the look. So in the end it doesn't matter where you get the info from - you're just trying to impress all the other people who look exactly like you anyway.

What a perfect summation of the whole menswear subculture! Pretty much why I have grown somewhat weary of the topic.

Yeah, unless you've codified "character" into a standardized look of "uniqueness" where everyone is unique in the same way...
