How would you describe your style?
The perfect blend between fashion and function, from fit to finish. I’m big on Classic Americana (Trad/Ivy/Prep/Workwear) and European Country. If James Dean and Ernest Hemingway opened a haberdashery named “Cloak & Swagger,” I would be the poster child. If I had to pick one word to describe my style, it would undoubtedly be “Dapper.”
Main design influence(s)?
American Automobiles between 1929 and 1967, Elaborate typography, Art Deco, Bauhaus, Frank Lloyd Wright, Ray Kappe, Industrial Lofts, Iconic Logos, A1A in Palm Beach and Pacific Coast Highway in SoCal, John Deere Tractors, Savile Row, Truffle Hunting, Real bartenders, Tactical Cutlery, Paris, Key Largo, Rome, and the Chesapeake Bay/Tidewater Area to name a few.
Favorite place(s) to shop?
