I believe that fashion is something that is inherited at birth and is perfected as one gets older. I have always been influenced by the classic â€œpreppyâ€ style of a manâ€™s wardrobe. Something that never goes out of style and is never trendy.
How do you describe your style?
My style is casual without being sloppy or unfinished. I love a good reason to don a tie and sport coat or a tuxedo as well.
What are your favorite pieces?
Anything linen or cashmere are my favorite pieces in my closet, as well as the many hats I collect. I have over 50 baseball caps and various other chapeaus.
Where is your favorite place to shop?
When out of town I enjoy shopping at Ben Sherman, French Connection, and Upscale Consignment Shops with a nod to vintage. In Louisville I can always find something classic at JCrew, Banana Republic, and Evolve Menâ€™s Consignment on Frankfort Ave.
Who is your fashion icon? Why?
Icons include Tom Ford, Ralph Lauren, and Tommy Hillfiger for their timeless and classic looks. Iâ€™ve been reading GQ since high school and continue to collect issues for future reference.
When it comes to dressing, whatâ€™s your favorite â€“ dressing up or keeping it casual?
I believe I enjoy dressing up the most. A manâ€™s wardrobe should always include a khaki suit and a dark suit, a tuxedo, dark denim, tailored oxfords and sport jackets, colorful ties, and a jazzy hat or two.
