What’s your signature piece?
The cutaway collar shirt, with a single windsor knot for the tie. It’s just a bit of a pattern interrupt.

Capezio shoes in 1984. And yes, they were white.

Tailored, dapper, classic

Custom suit, priceless.
Where do you find fashion inspiration?
GQ Magazine is always interesting for ideas to push yourself out of the comfort zone. Town & County in Springfield is just awesome, period. Brooks Brothers for a classic, timeless and safe choice.
If you could wear one brand or designer for the rest of your life, what would it be and why?
Ralph Lauren. From pajamas to tuxedos, ties to suits.

30 minutes, tops. Guys don’t talk about that you know.
Finish this sentence: “I wouldn’t be caught dead wearing...”
