“Real men don’t care how they look”

I see this quote all the time from one of my favorite men's fashion coach & style advisors on Twitter: Tanner Guzy.

Go give him a follow on Twitter @tannerguzy, or better yet, buy his book "Appearance of Power"

He says it in a tongue-in-cheek way to remind people that image is incredibly important, and nowhere is this seen as obviously as we do in the arms & armor of warriors through all of human history.


I was reminded of this as I recently toured the Art Institute of Chicago.

They have an incredible collection in their museum, and my favorite segment is the arms & armor section. I made the most of the opportunity and took a ton of photos that I wanted to share.

Take a look, and pay attention to the incredible levels of detail & craftsmanship that went into every single piece.

In the future I'll do more digging into each piece and its significance, but for now I simply wanted to share their beauty with the world.

Enjoy.
