While we observe this special day next week, today is officially Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday. Inspired by his never-ending approach to the inward reflection of man, I was most inspired by his sense of style. While looking through photos of Dr. King, I came across the photo of he and his wife, Coretta, joining hands in the front lines of the Freedom Walk in Montgomery, Alabama. As a man who had to be influenced with the formality of dress, I find it inspiring that he had the comfort in his own sense of style to pair his suit with boots. Whether it was a choice of function or fashion, that trend has been a longstanding moment in menswear.
