Describe your look: Clean, simple, and classic

What do you consider a “fashion don’t”? Don’t ever be uncomfortable. Don’t dress or be something you are not. If you are not comfortable, people will pick up on that.

What is your favorite piece of clothing? The sport coat! It can be dressed up with pants, a shirt, and tie, or dressed down with a t-shirt and jeans. Both work well depending on the occasion.

What do you consider a must-have accessory? Confidence. Without that, it really doesn’t matter what you’re wearing.

What is a fashion crime you have committed? Being underdressed. Most people will not notice if you’re overdressed, and if they do, the worst that will happen is they say “He looks nice.” If you’re underdressed, people will pick up on that right away.

Where are your favorite places to shop? Boss, Burberry, and Original Penguin

What completes your look? My haircut. You could have a $1,000 suit on, but if your hair is a disaster, that will be what people notice.

What is in your bag/briefcase? My laptop, any file I may need for that day, extra business cards, pens, paper, measuring tape and Tylenol.

My closet is full of…Sport coats. Whether I’m dressing them up or down, sport coats are my go-to.

Boss suit, David Donahue shirt, Johnston & Murphy shoes, The Tie Bar tie, Tag watch, Links of London cuff links
