Personal style: A hybrid of traditional menswear, streetwear and athletic wear. One day, you can catch me in a full three-piece custom suit and Oxfords. The very next day, I’ll be rocking a leather moto jacket with jogger sweatpants and a pair of Jordan 1 Retros.
Style icons: Currently, Jeff Goldblum is my style icon and life muse. His take on bold patterns—from zebra-print shirts to his staple black-and-white GH Bass Larson Weejuns loafers—has reinvigorated the way I look at my wardrobe. Pharrell Williams and designers Michael Bastian and Angel Ramos are always style inspiration to me.
Every man should have: A black leather moto jacket. It goes with everything, and you can wear it with a T-shirt and jeans or use it as a blazer alternative by pairing it with a knit tie and suit pants.
Spring trends he loves: Bold colors and patterns, from shirts to suits. As many guys have finally perfected their “essential basics,” I’m excited to see how these trends will be interwoven into their style for the spring and summer.
How his blog inspires his style: The Men’s Style Pro blog really keeps me on my toes when it comes to selecting what trends actually make it into my style rotation.
Go-to outfit for a night out: I suit up in a tonal or monochromatic way, with a bold pattern shirt and a sleek Chelsea or Jodhpur boot.
What he’s buying for spring: I’ll probably be increasing my bold-pattern camp collar shirt collection. They’re my current menswear obsession.
