Notes From The Runway
With the right clothes, you can face the elements and the crowd. Go from strength to strength, pattern to pattern, texture to texture, color to color.
Classics with a twist. The romance is all in the details—the shawl collar, the bone button, the shoe kiltie, the cable pattern, the flap or pleat on the pocket. Every item speaks of knowledge.
It’s not eccentric if it looks right. A rough tweed, a strong plaid, a serious fur collar—back them up with attitude.
Luxury isn’t just for ballrooms and restaurants—wild nature is the most luxurious place to dress.
Anybody can look like everybody. The real stylist pulls off the one of a kind, with mannered tailoring and his own way to wear it. Teach the stylists a lesson.
A flair for drama captures attention, then balance it with humor in the details. A little excess never hurts if you feel comfortable with it.
Black is back big time, but deep strong colors never looked so bold. Be yourself. As Oscar Wilde said, “Everybody else is taken.”
Fortune favors the bold with strong plaids and windowpane patterns for suits and sport jackets.
Relaxed doesn’t look too busy; don’t hesitate to wear a solid shirt or solid tie.
White shirts may always be right, but subtle greens and blues set a more nuanced tone.
The tailored spectrum has evolved. Don’t shy away from subtleties in brown, green or violet. Grays are great, but not every day.
