The Independent

Bono, George Clooney, Adam Levine, Daniel Day-Lewis. These are devil-may-care guys. They'll wear that cashmere sweater with a leather vest and they don't give a damn whether you like it or not. This type feels their style, deep down in their bones. They carry around a strong conviction that they are who they are and if you don't like it, get out of the way. The Independent is a strong symbol of individual style. They don't follow the trends or wear the expected. Each is his own guy. They don't dress to impress, they dress to express.

What Women Think
  • He doesn't need me, which makes me want him more.
  • He know what he wants, and I want that to be me.
  • Desperado, come down from your fences, open the gate. You better let somebody love you (LET ME LOVE YOU!)
