His style: "I'm the kind of guy who dresses subtle and sweats the details. My clothes are more about texture than color."

His inspirations: "My friends, the creative community here in New York, the Italians (especially in Florence) and what menswear designers are doing around the world. I'm fortunate enough to be exposed to many of them and their work, and that makes getting dressed and watching trends more exciting."

Favorite local store: "Odin: Eddy Chai and Paul Birardi have been curating great menswear for years now and were one of the first of the new breed of men's shops in New York. Billy Reid's outpost in New York is one of the best-decorated stores in the city. [I also like] the Upland Trading Co., provider of old-school outdoors gear, in the East Village; RRL, a long-standing and unhealthy obsession of mine ever since high school; and Bergdorf Goodman, the highlight of men's fashion in New York—America, really. It's the best place to find out what's going on and see the newest and the best."

Favorite local designer: "Adam Kimmel (adamkimmel.com), though he might be better known in Europe. He does things that look like work wear or classic instances of Americana, but with the most luxurious fabrics. He's very inspired by historical art movements."

Go-to bargain spots: "Socks from Uniqlo. I check the Polo section at Macy's from time to time for sale items, and the Steven Alan sample sale is always good."

The greatest dresser of all time: "Paul Newman. He always looked great, in his movies and in real life—without a stylist, I imagine—even in army fatigues. Also arguably the most sought-after watch is named after him: the Paul Newman Daytona by Rolex."
