SPECIAL GUEST INTERVIEW:
MONTGOMERY FRAZIER TALKS ABOUT HIS 7th OUTFIT

 

What items did you use to compose this particular outfit?
A plaid cashmere Polo Ralph Lauren jacket
A plaid Haupt shirt from the Zohreh Menswear boutique off Sutton Place
A cotton logo motif neckerchief from Jean Paul Gaultier
Blue slacks from Joe Fresh
Cinnamon colored polka dot socks from Calvin Klein
Brown suede shoes from Giorgio Armani
Silver and black diamond ring from David Yurman

 

 

 

 

How did you arrive at the decision to compose such an outfit?
I built this outfit around my jacket and shirt….it’s really that simple, but I like to mix and pair odd color combinations and patterns that traditionally don’t match, but complement each other….

 

 

 

 

Did you compose this outfit spontaneously or was it planned ahead of time?
Spontaneously

 
On a scale of 10, how pleased are you with this composition/outfit?
8…This is one of my more conservative looks 

 
What roles do color, the fit, and integrity of fabric play in this particular outfit?
Pattern against pattern dictated this ensemble and then pairing them with solids, which helped to not overkill the patterned theme… 

 

 

 

 

How soon would you repeat/wear this same outfit again?
Not for months at least, but I have repeated this outfit once before…..

 

 

 

 
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 wanted to look conservative, like an aristocrat going to a board meeting…
