Describe your look:
“All-American throwback”: jacket and jeans

What do you consider a “fashion don’t”?
Following a trend just because it’s a trend

What is your favorite piece of clothing?
A great suit jacket or sports coat. They can be worn with anything, and everyone looks better in a jacket.

What do you consider a must-have accessory?
A really good watch – by design, not necessarily by price.

What is a fashion crime you have committed?
Shoulder-length hair. It was REALLY bad.

Where are your favorite places to shop?
Barney’s, Nordstrom, and after a particularly good closing, Sebastien Grey Clothiers

What completes your look?
A sense of humor

What is in your bag/briefcase?
Tumbuk2. They offer custom-made briefcases, messenger bags and backpacks out of San Francisco, but they can be ordered online. Seriously, you need one.

My closet is full of…
30 years of favorite ties – many of which I will never wear again.

Jacket, Pants and Shirt – Ted Baker; Tie – Eton; Shoes – Tod’s;
Belt – Trafalgar; Watch – Cartier Tank Francaise
