Personal style quirk?
Always leave room for assumption!
Lanvin, Ralph Lauren & Dries Van Noten
Most cherished item?
My vanilla colored vintage motorcycle jacket.
The first thing I look at in another Sartorialist's outfit...
How he or she has worked with the proportions.
I always break this fashion rule…
Wearing loose fitting DB jackets unbuttoned.
I never break this fashion rule.
I never skip the belt (I am obsessed with them)!
Never caught wearing?
Dress shirt with a tie, without a jacket, in public.
Most underrated item in menswear/womenswear?
The perfect scarf. For a man or woman an ascot (or silk scarf) if styled properly can be the sexiest part of an outfit. For me scarves are essential whether they are knitted in the winter, or lighter in the summer - they create an interesting concept.
Bergdorf Goodman & 10 Corso Como.
Favorite vacation spot?
The coast of Maine. When I am there I don't remember that I live in NYC. It is so tranquil and totally different from my daily life in New York.
Favorite place to search for inspiration?
Manhattan Public Library
Best stylish movies?
Michelangelo Antonioni's “Blow Up,” John Schlesinger’s “Darling”
Siddhartha by Hermann Hesse
