Co-owner of Armstrong & Wilson, a men's accessories brand
What do you have on?
Vintage, gold-button, double-breasted blazer, custom Pink spread-collar shirt, Armstrong & Wilson tie and pocket square, J. Crew tan linen pants, and cordovan tassel loafers by Johnston & Murphy.
Do you have on any sentimental item?
The gold tie clip was made by Burberry. I found it in an old jewelry box that belonged to my grandfather, who died of cancer back in early 2000.
What's the next item you have your eye on?
I've been on the prowl for the perfect pair of wingtip boots. Even though the summer heat is still blasting, I'm thinking fall/winter.
Cool hang-out spots?
Chris' Jazz Café in Center City Philadelphia. Great music, great food, and stylish gents from young to old.
Best advice your mother gave you?
You don't have to have a million dollars to look like a million dollars. Presentation is everything, son.
What's your style advice to someone looking to change his style?
Let your style be an expression of yourself. Remember, change doesn't have to be extreme, it could as easy as adding a few simple details to your everyday look.
What should every man have in his closet, and why?
A nice pair of cordovan or brown dress shoes. It's one of those things that a guy can transition throughout his entire wardrobe. Whether it's with a suit or a cool pair of jeans and a blazer, it's that item that works well with almost any look.
