Suit by Loro Piana

This suits what I do for work because it doesn’t get crushed on long flights or car rides. We have manufacturing bases in China, Indonesia, India, Sri Lanka and markets all over the world, so I am on a plane a lot and this is comfortable because the fabric is so soft.


Shirt by Thomas Pink

I’ve been wearing Thomas Pink shirts for a long time because they fit me so well. I particularly like the Winchester collection, with white collars and white cuffs.


Belt by Salvatore Ferragamo

Everything I wear has to suit me for multiple purposes because I travel so much, and this looks good with denim jeans or a suit – it can go formal or casual. I typically don’t travel with too many belts. This one, in black leather with a silver buckle, still looks great in spite of all the mileage it has done with me – the leather is still in great shape.


Cufflinks by Dunhill

They are silver and go with everything. They’re just round but they have a pattern inside so the scratches don’t show. I have a whole bunch of Dunhill and it takes travel abuse pretty well.


Watch by Rolex

This is a Daytona in steel, with a black face. I’ve had it for about six years. This watch matches what I do for work because it also conveys reliability. I collect watches and have a fairly large collection.


Shoes by Harry’s of London

These are black loafers with a tassel. A long time ago, I had been wearing another brand and the soles fall off on a flight. My friend said that Harry’s was not far away. I walked in and ended up with five pairs of their shoes. I’ve bought so many pairs now that when they heard we sponsor the Breast Cancer Research Foundation’s event in Singapore, where everyone is supposed to wear something pink, they made me a pair of pink suede shoes for the event.
