special guest/ JAMES AGUIAR TALKS ABOUT HIS 14TH OUTFIT: #14 in 14 acts









What items did you use to compose this particular outfit?
Paul Smith Jacket, shirt, pants and shoes,
Pucci neck scarf
Isaiah Hemmingway lapel pin




How did you arrive at the decision to compose such an outfit?
This look represents the mix of the classic (the navy blue sport jacket) and the wild (the computer printed color explosion print pants). While it may seem out there…I get a lot of men saying they would wear them on the golf course!!




Did you compose this outfit spontaneously or was it planned ahead of time? 
I compose everything ahead of time!




On a scale of 10, how pleased are you with this composition/outfit? 
I will give this outfit a 10. Modern Dandy! All the trappings of being affected but somehow very casual at the same time.




What roles do color, the fit, and integrity of fabric play in this particular outfit? 
The fit is classic but the print is completely modern. These pants will definitely carry a time stamp…but I will still want to wear them in 10 years…that’s just me!



How soon would you repeat/wear this same outfit again?
This one is made to break apart..mix it up..wear the pants with a t shirt ! Maybe because they have all the colors of the rainbow I will wear them for gay Pride Day! 


There is perhaps a spiritual, emotional, intellectual or psychological aspect to the what/how we dress. What is your personal experience in relation to this outfit?
I like this look because it takes guts to pull these pants off…they make me feel brave!!
