Jacket by Theory

This navy wool blazer allows me to go in and out of meetings. It has real button holes in the sleeves so I can push them up when I’m not in a meeting. It also works with a shirt and tie. I travel quite a bit and I can get a few days wear out of this because it goes with a lot of things.

Shirt by Engineered Garments

I don’t dress in the typical way for the retail and housewares industry, which is a suit-no-tie, business-casual look. I have bought a lot of denim shirts but I love the fit of this one.

Pocket square by Givenchy

I like to mix in fun pocket squares to add a little edge to my outfit. I’m a big fan of Givenchy designer Riccardo Tisci and I have one of his T-shirts that I wear casually.

Trousers by Belstaff

I got these about six months ago and they are my favourite pair. I really like the cut. They look great with sneakers or dress shoes.

Watch by Audemars Piguet

I’m a huge watch fan. This is the Royal Oak Offshore – it’s rose gold and the watch that I wear 80 or 90 per cent of the time. I wanted this watch for six or seven years and I could finally buy it about three or four years ago, so now I wear it all the time. It’s fairly big and pretty sporty.

Shoes by Lanvin

These are the famous cap-toe design sneaker that Lanvin has become famous for. It was a style exclusive to Barneys; not even the Lanvin store had it. I have a Lanvin sneaker addiction – I got my first pair four years ago. I think I either saw my business partner wearing them or it was Kanye West. I can’t remember.
