ONE STYLE TIP YOU ALWAYS GIVE YOUR CLIENTS?
Trust yourself when matching patterns – your eye will tell you if something doesn’t match.
ONE PIECE OF CLOTHING YOU OWN THAT YOU CAN’T IMAGINE LIVING WITHOUT?
That may be the single most difficult question I’ve ever been asked… outside a physics classroom. There are a few classic items: A Mauro Blasi navy blazer, white Hamilton pinpoint dress shirt, and charcoal gray dress slacks. Each of these are indispensable for a classically dressed “boomer” like myself.
IN ONE WORD HOW WOULD YOU DEFINE POCKETS?
Superlative – of the highest quality or degree.
WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE BRAND RIGHT NOW?
Marco Pescarolo. Amazing fabrics, exceptional quality, updated fit and attention to detail — all in one brand!
HOW DO YOU DEFINE YOUR PERSONAL STYLE?
Colorful classic. I have always enjoyed bright colors – child of the late 60’s early 70’s and the black light neon color posters that were so popular. But I’ve also been a fan of the classic look of the Hollywood actors of the 30’s – Cary Grant, Fred Astaire, Gary Cooper, etc.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE SEASON?
Fall/Autumn. The weather, the sports, the Holidays and the fashion fabrics of the season.
WHAT DO YOU LIKE MOST ABOUT YOUR JOB?
The people I work with and the customers I serve. I have never worked any job where there was so much camaraderie and genuine concern and respect for one another as I have experienced here at Pockets. We truly are family… right down to sharing our hand-me-down clothes
