Please describe your style in three words.

Personal. Character. Sharp.

What is the biggest mistake one can make when getting dressed?

Trying to create a look that isn’t authentic.

Do you believe in role models?

Yes, I think at one point in our lives we are influenced by others, and that can further drive our own ambition and success.

What are your favourite fabrics?

Wool, linen, cotton, and silk.

Are there any style combinations that you object to?

Skinny jeans with big sneakers — way too 80's for my liking. I hated the 80's.

Which city has the best-dressed men?

‘Suited-and-booted’ in London.

Would you say that you are conservative or bold?

Definitely more conservative.

What are the rules, if any, in the way you dress?

No rules, just mood.

One garment/accessory that you can never have enough of?

Tie clips.

A man should always look like...

He’s confident.

Who taught you what you know about style?

Many over the years… too many to just list one person.

How do you select your clothing every morning?

By looking at my calendar, then out the window.

The three essential things a man should know about style are...

Know the essentials — watch, jacket, bag, shoes, socks, ties, jeans, and how to mix.

Do you have any shopping rituals?

None. All reactionary.

We will never see you wearing...

A bow tie.

What is the first thing you notice on a man?

His shoes.

The one image that defined your approach to style...

Nothing in particular, just random images and characters from the streets.

Which new designers do you follow/admire and why?

I am liking smaller designers at the moment like Mister Mister and 18 Waits.

The only article of clothing that a man needs to pay close attention to is...

His suit and the tailoring of his shirt.

What are the most treasured items in your wardrobe?

My Jeffery West shoes.

Is comfort an enemy of style?

Perhaps with shoes for the first few weeks.

Who would you like to see next in €œMy Style€?

My Canadian mate Markus Anderson of Soho House Group London.

The best words of advice you have ever heard?

Better to have, and not need, than to need, and not have.
