What/who is your daily style inspiration?
The two persons I normally look to for some inspiration would be Instagram's @runnineverlong, @thedressedchest, and @mycreativelook These guys wear awesome combinations and consistently show how to marry a variety of accessories.
In the mornings, which item of clothing do you start with to build the outfit of the day?
Normally I start off with the accessories and work my way around them. It could be a tie, a square or a specific tie and square combo. It really depends on what I want to wear that day.
Plaid, polka dots or stripes?
Honestly you really can’t go wrong with any of them! If mixed well you’ll be turning heads! Patterns always win, just ensure you don’t induce nausea.
List three things most people would not know about you.
- I love to cook. Really really love to cook. The kitchen is my happy place!;
- I am a huge fan of Classical music; and
- I don't have a middle name.
We all have that suit/jacket/pants/shirt/tie colour combination that never fails...whats your go to colour combination?
Definitely a light grey suit, crisp white spread collar shirt and purple tie; a little paisley for a classic look.
In an attempt to find you if you went missing, how would your spouse describe your style in 3 words?
I think the future Mrs. Phillips would say sharp, clean and classic.
Do you dress well for you or is it a lasting impression that you want to make on those around you?
I dress for impression first. How you carry yourself greatly affects how persons interact you. Something people fail to realize. I like to make quite the first impression and before I say a word persons are seeing what I’m wearing and already made a decision as to what they are going to do.
