Quotes on the podcast: "Clean shirt, new shoes and I don't know where I'm going to. Silk shirt black tie I don't need a reason why. They come running just as fast as they can cus every girl crazy about a sharp dressed man" - Sharped Dressed Man by ZZ Top "I’ll go in shops sometimes, and I just find myself looking at the women’s clothes thinking they’re amazing. It’s like anything—anytime you’re putting barriers up in your own life, you’re just limiting yourself. There’s so much joy to be had in playing with clothes. I’ve never really thought too much about what it means—it just becomes this extended part of creating something.” - Harry Styles (Vogue Article) “there will be a strong urge for men to start dressing up again. I think that people will start dressing up for themselves and not because they are required to for work. The man wearing a suit will be the new rebel.” - David Hart   Today's episode is sponsored by Duke Cannon Check out our review of their Victory Bar Soap   Music Credit: Lakey Inspired
