What’s your style philosophy? I like to be comfortable but classic. You can never go wrong with a nicely tailored suit. I do like a few subtle surprises, like a colorful lining in a suit. Or mixing a nice suit jacket with jeans and a T-shirt.

Where do you shop? Barneys Co-op, Neiman Marcus, and Patagonia.

Item you’re looking for? I’d like to find more organic fair-trade clothes.

Fashion advice? Have your suits altered when you buy them to make them fit better. Your shoes should always be polished and match your belt.
