special guest/ JAMES AGUIAR TALKS ABOUT HIS 8TH OUTFIT: #8 in 14 acts








What items did you use to compose this particular outfit?
Burberry hat and coat
Paul Smith Suit shoes and gloves
Prada shirt
Alexander Olch tie
Isaiah Hemmingway lapel pin.



How did you arrive at the decision to compose such an outfit?
I love the play of pattern and layering texture and pattern together; mixing the salt and pepper tweed of the coat with the black and white hounds tooth suit, playing with the scale of the hound’s-tooth in the tie and throwing it all off with the black and white floral print shoes!




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.



What roles do color, the fit, and integrity of fabric play in this particular outfit? 
This is definitely a mix story. The sum of the parts shouldn’t add up but in the end it just works for me.



How soon would you repeat/wear this same outfit again?
This is definitely a repeat offender



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!
