What does fashion mean to you?
It means everything. Itâ€™s the way of life. Itâ€™s how you express yourself. Itâ€™s weird because fashion is in everything so itâ€™s like if you look good, you feel good. It has a lot to do with your psychological (state). The way you carry yourself. Itâ€™s really a whole lot more than just the aesthetic of it.
How do you describe your style?
My style is classic. Classic is my go-to but I love to mix it with urban, street pieces. Like right now I have on a suit with Chuck Taylor All-Stars. Iâ€™ve worn boots with a suit or Jordans and baseball caps with a suit. Iâ€™d describe it as urban sophisticate, if you will.
What are your favorite pieces?
Iâ€™ve just recently gotten into watches and ties. Those are my latest obsessions but itâ€™s subject to change.
Where is your favorite place to shop?
I love a department store because you can get everything in one. My favorite stores would be Banana Republic or JCrew; theyâ€™ve got really good staple pieces. I like to thrift shop as well.
Who is your favorite fashion icon and why?
There are so many. I like classic so I always go to Frank Sinatra and that Rat Pack era, I love that. But I also love Kanye West and I also like cutting-edge designers like McQueen. So itâ€™s more like Ralph Lauren-y, classic. Iâ€™m hodge podgy; Iâ€™m everywhere.
Fashion is an expression of yourself, itâ€™s an extension of who you are. How you dress is who you are. How you dress is how you present yourself, itâ€™s the way people perceive you. Itâ€™s clichÃ©, but image is really everything.
