Between a date and a business meeting what would you prefer?
Your favorite bespoke tailor is….?
What decade interprets the best style period for you and how does that influence your wardrobe?
What’s the most inspiring movie and song?
Casablanca from 1942. Wets my eyes every time. Correspondingly the song „As time goes by” by Dooley Wilson.
Denim or everyday suits?
I am wearing suits on a daily basis in the bank. I enjoy denim on a weekend but actually prefer chinos.
Jewellery for men? Yes or No?
Definitely. Every man should own a great watch he can inherit his son. Bracelets are cool for casual outfits. I wear a signet ring inherited over generations in my family.
Your favorite IG account or inspiration?
Do you thing perfume is fundamental?
Definitely! First impressions matter and it is scientifically proven that our sense of smell is one of the most involved in forming that first impression.
The most common mistakes you see on men’s style?
Cheap shoes. It’s the piece that I look at first. Shoes are expensive but a rewarding investment. Treated correctly they can last for ages. They require frequent shining. They need to stored with shoe trees. And… that’s it! By far the most important piece of every outfit.
What things do you take on your luggage for a fast weekend business trip?
A shirt for every day. A blazer for an unexpected occasion. A good book (I am currently reading „Civilization: The West and The Rest” by Niall Ferguson). Headphones, I am a music addict and basically listen to music wherever I go. A pair of boat shoes and a pair of more formal shoes. A great perfume (at the moment that is Creed Aventus) and my camera!Name a vintage/old habit you keep in today’s life.
The wrist watch.
A good investment for you is..
