What details are a must for you?
"I always have my shirts rolled up and folded to my biceps, and my shirt collars are always buttoned, with or without a tie. I almost always have my wallet pocket chain. And I'm always wearing real leather wrist accessories."

What style rules do you live by?
"I think rules are meant to be broken—I've been attacked for wearing a matching plaid of different colors in the past, but it worked for me, so I did it. And my shirts are always buttoned-up."

How do you make your style work for you?
"I'm quite tall and skinny, and in my younger days I used to try to hide my frame with baggy clothes, which actually made me look even skinnier. Now I go for the tailor-made, structured, and well-fitted look."
