How did you get into fashion: I've been interested in clothing and style since I can remember. I shifted from home furnishings to fashion by way of classic menswear many years ago and never looked back.

How would you describe your personal style: I have a foundation in traditional suiting, so I learned all the rules there, but was consistently just as interested in the avant-garde. My style is seemingly conventional pieces with hidden or subtle details.

Current favorite piece(s) in your closet: Unassuming Carol Christian Poell trousers with the most intricately constructed crotch—it's a detail no one would ever see.

How long have you been using Grailed: Almost two years.

Most memorable Grailed come up: Some of the older, ridiculously impossible Margiela pieces. I'd probably never wear them—more likely to encase them in glass as wall art.

Favorite fashion designers: Helmut Lang, Ann Demeulemeester, Rei/Junya, Yohji, Daisuke Obana.

Ultimate grail: Timeless Yohji Yamamoto pieces.
