What is your fashion view?Â
Fashion goes beyond the clothes that one puts on each morning. Itâ€™s something that is instinctively part of a person, akin to having class or being a leader. Itâ€™s hard to point out why a person is any of these things, but when you see it, you know.
How do you describe your style?Â
Classic, through and through. I wear jeans and a blazer to cover as many social situations as possible and will put on at least a collar any time I leave the house. I sport a full Windsor knot, a pocket square at all times and can tie my own bow tie. I also own two tuxedos â€“ just in case.
What are your favorite pieces? Â
My newest favorite piece is Roger, my fiancÃ©e Katieâ€™s and my year-old Boxer. If you (know) my thoughts on fashion, heâ€™s got it. Youâ€™d be hard pressed to find me without him. Article of clothing-wise, I rarely leave the house without a pocket square â€“ and folded straight across â€“ I canâ€™t keep up with all those crazy designs Coach Pitino keeps putting out there.
Where is your favorite place to shop? Â
I think this is where Iâ€™m supposed to name a slew of Louisville Bardstown Road boutiques and high-end menâ€™s clothing stores, but Iâ€™d venture to say that 95 percent of my closet is from Stein Mart.
Who is your fashion icon, and why?Â
Itâ€™s a tie between Scott Disick because he dresses like a 1890s oil baron â€“ I mean he wears a 3-piece suit just to brush his teeth â€“ and Justin Timberlake, the smoothest white man on the planet.
Whatâ€™s your favorite fashion occasion?
My favorite days to dress for are Oaks and Derby. It is becoming humorous how much of my closet is being consumed by clothes I can wear four days a year, but thatâ€™s part of what makes Louisville so great. How many other cities in the world (have a day when) people put on their finest suits and dresses, just to go stomp around in the mud and cheer on tall horses being ridden by short men?
