Personal style: I believe in being comfortable but looking put together. My style is pretty casual—I’m a sweater-and-jeans guy. In the spring and summer, don’t be surprised if you see me sporting Birkenstocks while sewing evening gowns.

Style icons: When I moved to New York in 2007, I was inspired by the energy. Staying up all night, making art in a dirty Lower East Side apartment and surviving on whatever I could afford at the bodega. It wasn’t until years later when I read Just Kids that I realized I had a very similar experience to Patti Smith. I love how Patti uses clothing as a statement, without being in your face.

Every man needs: A perfectly fitting button down shirt.

Favorite splurge: Fragrance. When I’m not wearing a fragrance, I feel naked. My friends always comment on how good my “scent game” is.

Go-to casual outfit for winter: A cashmere sweater and jeans. You can layer it with scarves and jackets.
