What is one thing every gentleman should/shouldn’t have in their closet?
I think that every gentleman should have a blue blazer that can be used in different combinations (depending on the occasion). The blazer can always be worn with a white or blue shirt, giving one a classic style.
If I had to give every gentleman out there ONE tip, it would be ____.
To not follow fashion trends too strictly. We must recognize the value and benefits of a trend and make the best use for your style, do not overdo it because too much of a good thing.
Who is your favorite real-life/fiction gentleman?
As a child I was a fan of James Bond. He dresses sharp, is always elegant, has beautiful women, and has luxury cars. How could you not want to live like him? In real life, I admire two style icons, Nick Wooster and Lino Lelluzzi, although they are very different from each other.
What is unique about your fashion style?
My style is very classic. I own more than 10 white button downs, and I do not like to always seem extravagant. But I do like to distinguish myself by wearing accessories such as a tie or a handkerchief. I like to create different combinations with all of my accessories! This makes me feel more comfortable without going over the top for a clean look.
What does being a gentleman mean to you?
I do not like to generalize what constitutes a gentleman. A gentleman should be characterized as intelligent, polite, respectful, and stylish.
