Style sensibility: I try to stick to my LA roots and throw the New York spin on it. Go-to uniform: A pair of destroyed jeans and a sharp blazer over them, for the balance of rough and tailored. Top recommendation for fall: Skinny tuxedo striped pants or jeans for women—they’re sexy and sophisticated—and a cool quilted vest for men. Favorite item in closet: A timeless 45rpm linen blazer purchased in SoHo for eight hundred ninety five dollars. In-his-dreams-only indulgence: A fifteen-thousand-dollar black matte Rolex watch. Pairs of shoes confessed to owning: One hundred. Favorite designers: Ralph Lauren for classic Americana-inspired clothing; Rag & Bone for contemporary sophisticated sportswear; Jean Shop for denim. Bookmarked websites: mrporter.com, aloharag.com, and odin
newyork.com. Most fashionable film character: George Clooney from Ocean’s Eleven to The Descendants. No matter what character he plays, he always looks like himself. Best-dressed celeb vote: Brad Pitt—he’s so effortlessly put together. Dream makeover client: Derek Jeter. While he represents New York, he doesn’t represent New York style.
