“I think a lot of us are fully capable, intelligent, creative people but if you’re not given the right task or a task that sparks your interested, you’re not gonna excel.”

"I had my first suit made for me when I was 24, by the legendary Milanese tailor, Mario Pozzi. It took Mr. Pozzi 6 months to go through the process of fitting me and taking all my measurements. Then he cut the fabric, a beautiful saxony cloth, and personally delivered it to my door. When I tried it on, he and I were both very pleased. Why wouldn’t I be? He was a genius. I was also eager to get back into my street clothes but he gave me this advice. ‘Put the suit on and keep it on. Wear it for two days straight. Eat in it. Sleep in it. Then it will not just be an exquisite suit. Sarà un tuo vestito - it will be your suit.’"

"Hats off (as it were) to whoever came up with the idea to equip conservative dress socks with brightly colored heels and toes. It’s a detail that serves no point other than to remind you (and you alone) that dressing well should be fun."
