STYLE DEFINITION: My style relies on minor enhancements in details from classic silhouettes. A good music playlist always aids my outfit for the day.
SHOPPING SPOTS: Capitol Hill Clothiers is the best source for custom garments. Suitsupply for "ready to wear" is also a good option in the DMV area.
FASHION ICONS: Tom Ford and Hedi Slimane have been at the pinnacle of my style inspiration, In terms of celebrities, Jeff Goldblum and Harry Styles have been stealing the fashion spotlight as of late.

STYLE DEFINITION: Minimalist
SHOPPING SPOTS: Bonobos and Suitsupply
FASHION ICONS: Waraire Boswell and Michael Bastain. I also love what Walé Oyéjidé have done with the Ikiré Jones brand. His fusion of West African prints/fabrics. European tailoring and storytelling is extraordinary.
ADVICE TO NOVICES: Know the rules well, so you can break them effectively.

STYLE DEFINITION: Sophisticated, English and neutral
SHOPPING SPOTS: You'll see me shopping at Uniqlo, H&M and Zara most often. Rag & Bone is also a favorite and Suitsupply is my go to for formal clothing.

STYLE DEFINITION: Versatile, comfortable and always evolving
SHOPPING SPOTS: I'll pick up pieces from Suit Supply and Banana Republic periodically and Uniqlo and H&M for basics.
FASHION ICONS: My interest in style originally developed from my Grandmother - she wouldn't have guests over without getting done up like she was going to church. As I grew into my own style in my early 20's I gained an interest in European men's fashion and, because of playing sports my entire life, always looked to athletes dressed well. David Beckham is definitely at the top of that list.
