I met Chuck last week while I was in Huntington Beach. Spotting him a mile away, I had to catch up and take a picture. His all denim ensemble with a touch of plaid AND the hat was a really cool combo, he couldn't be a cali native. far too stylish. We began chatting and ironically he said he was a New yorker who recently relocated to the golden coast. "I'm moving there in a few weeks" I yelped which led to a conversation on the fashion industry and what it can offer. Later on when the final touches of Project HANDSOME were complete I emailed him a set of questions. Here is a glimpse of Chuck's story-


_________________________________________________________________________________

Q: Tell us a little about yourself starting with your name:
 My name is Chuck George and the I am the founder of harp & arrow.

Q: Have you ever been a victim of prejudice and/or called derogatory names because you are a fashionable man? 
 I've been called "pretty, metro, gay" many times over. It's a stereotype I have learned to live with. There is no greater price to pay than to live your life caring about what other people think.

Q: How did that make you feel though?
 To be honest, I never really minded it. I have a strong sense of self and accept ignorance in a society that has always been full of it.


Q: What Inspires you in your daily life to ignore those people and continue on confidently, as a fashionable male?
Life is a glimpse, a very short moment in time. Why live it for anything other than for your self ? A strong sense of self is key. If you have that, you can do anything. I'll leave you with a quote from one who defines the ideal.


"Better to have a short life that is full of what you like doing than a long one spent in a miserable way." - Alan Watts
