PICTURE: #3 IN SIX ACTS

SPECIAL GUEST INTERVIEW:
GEOFFREY BRADFIELD TALKS ABOUT HIS 4th OUTFIT

What items did you use to compose this particular outfit?
Black jeans Incotex Venezia
Pink checked shirt Brooks Brother
Charcoal cashmere jersey TSE
Black jacket Lands’ End
Hot pink cashmere scarf Hermès
Cashmere socks Calvin Klein
Black shoes John Lobb
Wristwatch Montblanc

How did you arrive at the decision to compose such an outfit?
I live on the Upper East Side where suits and ties are my natural uniform.  Being invited downtown is always a challenge for me.  I’ve found wearing black an “easy out.”  The jacket has the added advantage of a hood.

Did you compose this outfit spontaneously or was it planned ahead of time?
I never dress randomly.  It is always planned.

In a scale of 10, how pleased are you with this composition/outfit?
8

What roles do color, the fit and integrity of fabric play in this particular outfit?
This is a downtown outfit—simple black combinations.

How soon would you repeat/wear this same outfit again?
Occasionally.

There is perhaps a spiritual, emotional, intellectual or psychological aspect to what/how we dress. What is your personal experience in relation to this outfit?
I simply dress for pleasure.
