How do you define style?
Style is a boring thing done interesting. A different way of doing… A cat has style. I’ve seen men in jail with more style than most. Jesus had style, John the Baptist, Caesar. Not many have style and even fewer can keep it.
Describe your personal style.
Classic, American man, circa ‘62
What men’s fashion trends will stand the test of time?
Navy blazers, grey trousers, suede tasseled loafers, cashmere, chalk stripes, seersucker, Levis 501s, pocket squares, manners, the written word, letters (getting and giving) and a damn good tailor.
Men’s fashion trends you wish would disappear?
What are your must-have accessories?
A good watch, a white linen pocket square, a tie clip, a watch fob, a good bag, well-worn Levi’s that you bought new.
What style advice do you have for men?
Be present. Look around, explore, get local. Chose the difficult over the safe. Don’t give a damn what people think, but be aware there are consequences.
