NELSON HOWARD HUFF III
ONE STYLE TIP YOU ALWAYS GIVE YOUR CLIENTS?
Fit above all. If it doesn’t fit, get it altered or give it away.
ONE PIECE OF CLOTHING YOU OWN THAT YOU CAN’T IMAGINE LIVING WITHOUT?
A Navy blazer. It’s your Swiss Army Knife. There’s a running joke between a customer and I about the presidency of the Navy Jacket Club. Needless to say, he’s winning. Mostly because he has a few decades on me!
IN ONE WORD HOW WOULD YOU DEFINE POCKETS?
Sprezzatura. “Effortless Elegance”
WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE BRAND RIGHT NOW?
Hamilton Custom Shirts. Fit, fabrics, and details are all at your fingertips to select the perfect shirt.
HOW DO YOU DEFINE YOUR PERSONAL STYLE?
Italian Cowboy. With one side of my family from Amarillo, I have a firm appreciation of all things Texas. Mix that cowboy sensibility with some Italian styling, and you have perfectly described my everyday look.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE SEASON?
Fall. I have the opportunity to wear bold colors and patterns in heavier fabrics. I also have a leather jacket that can’t wait to come out of the closet and gain some patina.
WHAT DO YOU LIKE MOST ABOUT YOUR JOB?
Being a concierge. More than helping men dress better than they have to, I enjoy talking about books, restaurants, cigars, sports, history, and a host of other things that allow me to engage with everyone who walks through our doors. The opportunity to build relationships with customers who soon become friends is a privilege in which I take great honor.
