Henry got Single (aka he “got” Divorced)
And once he came up for air, and had moved into his own condo, attempted to cook actual meals (and defaulted to Grab and Go meals) – he decided to create a brand new Him.
Inspired by his younger, hipper sister – who encouraged a new wardrobe: his new mantra was, “Out with the old and in with the new.”
At the fervent urging of his sister, he tossed out many, many, bags of old, worn, dated clothes and agreed to go on a shopping spree with his sister.
These were the TOP 20 Must Have items
1.Navy blue blazer.
2.New straight-cut blue jeans.
4.Mid-gray wool pants: light weight.
5. Good Khaki shorts.
6.White and light blue button-down oxford shirts.

And so it begins, a new chapter.
