What’s hot now?
Right now, I am loving the Monocle x Comme des Garcons Scent One: Hinoki. It’s a perfectly subtle, yet recognizable woody scent, inspired by Japanese hot spring baths. Not overbearing in the slightest.
What is your favorite menswear item for summer?
This summer, I really like the Florsheim by Duckie Brown brogues. Nothing makes a statement more than a classic shoe with a modern update. Think mustard yellows and muted metallics fused with a historic shoe style. Steven Cox and Daniel Silver really brought their vision to the Floresheim brand–and gained some devoted followers along the way.
What’s the biggest menswear trend right now?
I like nothing more than a tailored blazer paired with a clean-cuffed, above-the-ankle short. It’s a perfect outfit to bring you from day to night, looking polished and on point. Perhaps a knit tie accompanied by a sleek tie clip. Definitely a sock free zone.
