YOUR PERSONAL STYLE? My personal style is best described as a “multitool” without looking like one. I’m open to looks that get me out of the door in 15 minutes or less while conveying effort at the same time. Sometimes I play by the fashion rules, other times I go commando. Since I work long hours, form and function come into play as I often go straight from work to dinner with clients or friends. 

Tricks for spicing up men’s looks? No tricks or secrets here — Vegas summers bring enough spice. A cuffed chino for summer and lightweight cotton chemise button-down shirts for this demonic heat are at the top of my list. Socks or no-socks? Keeping with the form and function concept, I wear a no-show sock. Although I practice in wonderworking, I can’t walk on water. 

Biggest fashion pet peeve? It would be a celebrity death match between Crocs and socks with sandals.

What’s on your desert island clothing list? Shwood handcrafted sunglasses from their brand-new Louis Slugger Collection (shwoodshop.com); John Varvatos dip-dyed, ultralight linen, short-sleeve Henley (johnvarvatos.com); and a tie between the incredibly rugged Iron Heart selvedge Paraffin Coated 22-ounce Cotton Duck Five Pocket Jeans (ironheart.co.uk) or Wilson volleyball seen in the movie Castaway. No offense, Iron Heart, but I will need someone to talk to, and it’s easier to make friends without pants. 

Five things I can't live withoutWho are your style icons? I like a classic gent look with a killer fashion sense. My style icons are Nickelson Wooster, Steve McQueen and Patrick Bateman. Who doesn’t like good hair, fast motorcycles or a high-quality business card ?

What is your top style tip for guys for summer? Buy a motorcycle. Even grandma looks cool on a motorcycle.

Jeremy Scott offers to make you a custom pair of sneakers. What do they look like? Run DMC would definitely be my inspiration. I would go for the classic shell-toe so I didn’t look I jammed my foot into a Beanie Baby’s business end.
