special guest/ JAMES AGUIAR TALKS ABOUT HIS 2nd OUTFIT: #2 in 14 acts






What items did you use to compose this particular outfit?
Paul Smith three-piece suit
Paul Smith gloves
Thomas Pink shirt and tie
Handmade lapel pin


How did you arrive at the decision to compose such an outfit?
This is a typically British look. Classic with the proverbial twist. I call this an interview suit. Something that makes an impression but doesn’t scare.


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 plus


What roles do color, the fit, and integrity of fabric play in this particular outfit? 
A three-piece suit definitely means business. I know that they come and go in terms of popularity but I think it ALWAYS looks great. I love the flash of fuchsia and the fact that I pair it with a lapel pin that I made out of paper.


How soon would you repeat/wear this same outfit again?
This look is a classic in my wardrobe and will be for a long time.


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? This is a case of when you feel good you look good! I feel good in this!
When I put this on I know it is to get things done…sometimes you have to let your clothes do the work for you.
