special guest/PETER DAVIS: talks about his 6th outfit. #6 in seven acts




What items did you use to compose this particular outfit?
The shirt is by Fred Perry and has my initials on it. I usually don’t like to monogram things, but this made the Fred Perry polo more fun as I customized it by choosing the red collar and blue sleeves. I love Fred Perry as it is both Mod and preppy at the same time. The shorts are by Burkman Brothers whose clothes I could and do wear every day. They have this global bohemia aesthetic that I totally relate with as I love to travel more than anything. The sneakers are by Vans and have an Iron Maiden image on them. The iPad case is fake snakeskin from Paul Smith.

How did you arrive at the decision to compose such an outfit?
This outfit took no thought. It is comfortable and something I could live in. The Burkman Brothers shorts are beyond soft.

Did you compose this outfit spontaneously or was it planned ahead of time?
This outfit was put together in less than a minute.

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

What roles do color, the fit and integrity of fabric play in this particular outfit?
I love the subtle, exotic pattern of the Burkman Brothers shorts. It makes me want to go back to Nepal or Tibet and go hiking.

How soon would you repeat/wear this same outfit again?
I could wear this outfit to the beach or Le Bain. It’s just so easy and comfortable.

Personally, I firmly believe that there is a spiritual, emotional, intellectual or psychological aspect to what/how we dress. What is your personal experience in relation to this outfit?
The Fred Perry shirt makes me happy as I picked out the different colors myself. I love anything ‘custom.’
