Personal style is something I have been keenly aware of as early as 10 years old when I was running around in white denim with no break. Praise [or blame] my mother for much of my sartorial awareness. Hollywood also deserves a sliver of credit; 80s Hollywood, specifically. Class, Dead Poets Society and Back to the Future all had profound impacts on me. Recently, for their inaugural January 2011 issue, Matchbook asked what film has had the greatest influence on my personal style.
