What is a Gentleman? And how do you dress like one? That’s a question many men would like to know how to answer.

His book, Gentleman: A Timeless Guide to Fashion, has sold over 1 million copies and has been translated into many languages. We’ll also discuss his new book, Bespoke Menswear, wardrobe basics, and much more. Enjoy the interview!
