Co-owner of J.D. Ireland Interior Architecture Design

“He defines good-looking American style with a twist. He wears traditional, even conservative things like collared shirts, jeans, T-shirts, and sneakers, but he’ll add a fun color or pattern to make his outfit energetic and unexpected. He’s also meticulous about his grooming. I’ve seen him paint a room wearing a suit and not get a spot on him.”

—Julie Weber Levine, Ireland’s business partner
