• Shark Attack

    Dress Code  

    My client, Brendan, in a F.E. CASTLEBERRY light grey sharkskin suit and sky blue dress shirt. My house style is a soft suit that's almost as comfortable as wearing a sweater—draped and yet still fitted. Ok, so, like a slim-fitting sweater.

    We choose to wear suits; they aren't required. What they are is a uniform. You don't have to think about it (too much). But when you do, be thoughtful. To have one's suits made-to-measure is a luxury...a practical, no-nonsense luxury. It's all about personality. I want a uniform that represents the kind of man I am: sharp, soft, a walking contradiction.

  • On the Run

    Dress Code  

    Photographed in New York, NY

    Noteworthy: Ralph Lauren tortoise sunglasses, Parrot ZIK wireless headphones. These headphones have kind of become Owen's "thing." Every time I run into him he has them around his neck if they aren't on his ears. The design is discreet (as most good design is) with no logos, but most impressive is the sound. They say, " I love music and great design." They also say a few other things like, "I'm smart enough and secure enough to be unaffected by Beats by Dre marketing" or "my taste is sophisticated." The ZIK very well could be the best headphone under $400. Now I want a pair.

  • Hand Me Down

    Dress Code  

    Photographed in New York, NY

    Noteworthy: Stéphane has become a good friend over the last year and the first time I saw his jacket, I thought it was so cool. It belonged to his grandfather who played polo competitively back in the early 80s down in Kentucky. That authenticity is enviable. The front bares his grandfather's initials and crest while the back has "Calumet Farm Polo Kentucky" emblazoned in red. How he wears it over almost anything is effortless and here, over a navy blazer and repp stripe tie, it's old school American sportswear worth taking a cue from. And he reads Apartmento, also worth taking a cue from.
