special guest/ JAMES AGUIAR TALKS ABOUT HIS 6TH OUTFIT: #6 in 14 acts










What items did you use to compose this particular outfit?
Club Monaco suit and Tie
Paul Smith shirt
Shoes and gloves

How did you arrive at the decision to compose such an outfit?
I like to wear “head to Toe” a lot. The black watch plaid and tie match exactly and the forest green shirt and shoes finish it off!


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…very me and the way I like to look for work. I can see leaving the office and running to a holiday party in this!


What roles do color, the fit, and integrity of fabric play in this particular outfit? 
I like the weight of the wool…not too heavy and I can move. The fit is classic and the pattern is preppy but not clean…I like that!



How soon would you repeat/wear this same outfit again?
This look is everyday for me and would definitely be repeated!



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 workhorse look. Stands out but doesn’t scream!
