There are few things more personal than buying the fabrics that touch us each and every day. Linens and towels become so much a part of our lives that not only do they reinforce the aesthetic we use to define ourselves, they tell others a lot about us as well.

Looking good shouldn’t break the bank. Most guys have a couple of classic pieces such as favorite jeans or shoes. If you don’t already have these in your closet or need a little updating, you don’t have to go out and spend a bunch of money to make it happen. Check out this outfit to see what I’m talking about.

I first spotted Form over the summer while enjoying the fire pit at Woodberry and knew I’d be back to find out more. The boutique is located in the Woodberry-Clipper Mill area right next to the local favorite, Woodberry Kitchen.

Imagine my shock during my first winter in Baltimore when I thought my years in N.C. had prepared me for the winter weather. I was so, so wrong. This year, I’m going about it all different.
