Describe your look: Timeless: Classic with an occasional edge. You will find me in a suit 90% of the time, though I have started to ditch the tie.
What do you consider a “fashion don’t”? As comfortable as it may be to wear an outfit that is three times too large, clothing should be well-tailored and streamline to the body. Too many guys like to swim in their outfits.
What is your favorite piece of clothing and why? A navy suit. It is, after all, the most versatile, timeless and powerful of accoutrements.
What do you consider a must-have accessory? A nice watch. As a man, it is hard to accessorize, but a nice watch is an absolute must. I wear a Rolex Daytona Cosmograph.
Where are your favorite places to shop? I get my suits and shirts from Frederick Lynn Haberdasshere in Chicago. Aaron Comes is a good friend and one of the best in the business. Additionally, I will pick up a few items (sweaters, trousers, etc) from J. Crew. Most shoes are from Herring, Crockett and Jones, Gucci and Tod’s.
What, besides your wardrobe, completes your look? My hair and my red socks (even though socks are part of the wardrobe).
What is in your bag/briefcase? I always carry my iPhone 7 Plus; an iPad (easy to grab information on the go); a Montblanc Business Card Case and my grandfather’s vintage Montblanc Meisterstuck Ballpoint.
My closet is full of… White dress shirts and custom suits. There is nothing cleaner or crisper than a white dress shirt.
What is your style advice for other people in the industry? Dress for the market you are trying to sell. If that is luxury, the expection would be nothing less than a suit (don’t always need to wear a tie).
