SPECIAL GUEST INTERVIEW:
GEOFFREY BRADFIELD TALKS ABOUT HIS 1st OUTFIT
How did you find the various items that you are wearing?
The simplicity of these solid colors appeals to me, like much of my interior décor, I prefer solid colors with pattern used as an accent. This suit is classic tailoring and perfect for the office during the day.
How did you arrive at the decision to compose such an outfit?
Where do you normally shop for clothes and accessories?
How much role does money or the lack thereof play in one’s endeavor to dress very smart or beautifully?
It takes serious money to acquire quality. Having said that, I have no issue with mixing mail-order clothing with a high-end product.
What special recommendation would give somebody who admires your style but don’t know where or how start?
As a result of your style, what is your impression of how you are generally perceived in public?
My taste in general is rather conservative. I probably have a distinctive look, but I am not that aware of it. I am fastidious in my dress.
And how would rather the public perceive you?
That I am an evolved individual, at one with my own identity.
Presently, what do you think accounts for the poor appearances in how people generally dress or don’t dress?
I guess, a general lack of interest in appearance.
