Need some advice when it comes to men’s fashion? Gregory R. Seitter is a personal stylist who shares his own classic style and tips.
GREGORY’S STYLE: Classic, with a hint of edginess.
INDISPENSABLE WARDROBE ITEM: A Brunello Cucinelli deconstructed navy blazer. As comfortable as a cardigan and as elegant as a classic suit jacket, the blazer may be worn with, well, most things.
FAVORITE PLACE TO SHOP: Prior to working at Boyds Philadelphia, I was a customer. I was always impressed with the personal attention I received at the family-owned store.
HIS FASHION ICON: Steve McQueen, the king of cool. He knew how to dress classic but with a punch of edginess, rocking a T-shirt and denim one day and a tweed blazer over chinos the next.
THOUGHTS ON AGING: There are many easy keys to aging gracefully, including staying active, eating right and protecting your skin from sun damage. Better yet, they’re all within your control, from getting your beauty sleep to staying hydrated.
INDISPENSABLE ACCESSORY: My Bottega Veneta woven leather credit card case. Every man needs a good cardholder. It streamlines what you carry to the minimum essentials and won’t ruin the line of your suit jacket like a bulkier wallet will.
GROOMING TIP EVERY MAN CAN APPRECIATE: Tackle dark circles and puffiness with an eye cream. Or better yet, just go to bed early. Burn the candle at both ends, and you will be Uncle Fester in no time.
FAVORITE FRAGRANCE: Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille. Reminiscent of an English gentleman’s club and blended with rich spices, vanilla and tobacco flower, it leaves a powerful impression.
FASHION NO-NO: Baggy clothing. A well-fitted outfit flatters your body shape and invites compliments from those around you.
WHY FASHION MATTERS: People make assumptions about you based on the way you dress. A change of wardrobe can help you get the job you want, the deals you want, the recognition you want, and even the mate you want. It’s that powerful.
