Thought for the day

Style is not something applied. It is something inherent, something that permeates. It is of the nature of that in which it is found, whether the poem, the manner of a god, the bearing of a man. It is not a dress. Wallace Stevens

I interpret it to mean that the style emanates from within, as in the gent above, and that what he has chosen to attire himself in comes from his own innate sense of style. That you cannot acquire style by what you put on cf Ms V Beckham.
