“I admire those who pull from a variety of resources to dress and design boldly.”

Occupation: Showroom manager at Circa Lighting

What I like: Great footwear, hats, and Tom Ford

What I dislike: Predictability; rigidity; men who mistakenly think dressing well is emasculating

Style is: I’ve always liked Jean Cocteau’s explanation of style as “a simple way of saying complicated things.”

Beauty is: Anything that stops you dead in your tracks and positively overwhelms your senses.

My style: Much like our city—eclectic traditionalism freshened by modern context

Signature item: My eyewear, which is both a necessity and a statement
