2. How did you become so stylish? Icons and media usually are the beginning but then later on you realize there is more in grooming and looking gentlemanly each and every day. It shows class, style, and confidence.
3. What advice would you give someone trying to find their personal style? It’s good to experiment after you’ve have the gist of other styles, but don’t go overboard. With everything there is a limit…
4. What’s the best clothing advice you ever received? Don’t buy the first item you see in one store..look around first at least 5 other stores for both prices and quality. Never look stuffy, and always dress accordingly..

For now I advise all guys to purchase a really nice pair of oxfords and boots. Get one pair of each that you feel you can wear with almost anything. I’ll do a post on my favorite oxfords and boots sometime this month.
