How would you describe your style?

All-American and casual.

Favorite designers?

For work, I like Cavalli and Paul Smith suits. For casual clothes, I’m a big fan of Lacoste as long as the collars aren’t popped. I also like Rock & Republic and Sevens jeans, and Puma.

Favorite places to shop in Washington?

I really like Thomas Pink, and I go to Denim Bar for jeans. But I’m not really a big shopper—I force myself to go to Neiman Marcus and Saks a couple of times a year and stock up.

What’s the best bargain you’ve ever found?

A couple of vintage T-shirts that I found at a thrift store in Texas. It was a total hole in the wall. They probably would have cost $100 each if I found them here, but I paid about $4 for each of them.

Best fashion advice you’ve received?

Always bring a woman along shopping because they are brutally honest. And they have better taste than us men.
