How’d your passion for menswear start?

I have always been into fashion for as long as I can remember. Growing up, I always took my style clues and inspiration from celebrities, style magazines and people around me, but I always made sure to give each outfit a personal touch. As I grew older, my personal style got refined as I moved away from street style and towards wearing more formal/dressier clothing. Social media apps like Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest etc. have helped a lot as I have so many stylists, bloggers, and brand ambassadors to look up to.

What are your goals as an influencer?

As an influencer, my goal is to show people the fun side of dressing up. My wardrobe is full of bright, fun, colorful blazers, pants, and ties and I want to show everyone that it’s ok to stray away from the regular blacks/blues/grays and venture into wearing something a bit unconventional.

How would you describe your personal style?

My personal style mostly centers around suits, but I never wear full suits unless I am attending a wedding. I have always worn suit separates or have paired blazers with chinos. I have showcased a few different looks on my Instagram page within the past year and I plan on pushing the boundaries a bit while keeping it classic yet fun.

Describe the outfit.

For this session I paired the “What’s the Holdup” tie with “Beige Santorini Pocket Square” and “Mini Anchor Socks.” My goal has always been to pay close attention to details and with this outfit I wanted to do just that. Burgundy, blue, and tan are perfect colors for fall/winter and in my opinion work very well together.
