How would you describe your style?

Elegant. I tend to be fashion-forward without being outlandish.

Who are your favorite designers?

Dolce & Gabbana and Ermenegildo Zegna.

What are some favorite places to shop in Washington?

Annie Creamcheese in Georgetown and Barneys. Express has a lot of cool belt buckles.

What is the best bargain you’ve ever found?

A vintage light-brown car coat at Annie Creamcheese for $50 last year.

Favorite thing in your closet?

My suits, which I have tailored in Thailand. I’m six-foot-five, so it helps to have them custom-made. I also love my collection of monogrammed, French-cuff dress shirts.
