How would youdescribe your personal style in one word?
Cool. Kids always ask me how I got so “cool”. My response is that you get cool when you stop trying. When you truly stop trying, that’s when you become cool. Don’t try and be cool. There are some things you just can’t fake—you can’t fake being smart, you can’t fake being funny, you can’t fake being rich, you sure can’t fake being cool, just be cool. That’s good advice.
How has yourstyle evolved over the years?
I’ve always been a stylish guy. I used to be a little more rough around the edges, ripped jeans—the grunge look was big. I think I’ve cleaned up my look a bit and go for more classic pieces that still have a little edge. It always has to have that extra something. I’ve also learned to mix highs and lows. An expensive coat or watch with a more dressed down tee and jeans is what I like. Don’t be scared of juxtaposition—if anything it makes it look real. Things don’t have to match if they’re far enough apart. Together, the juxtaposition somehow works.
How would youdescribe your body type in one word?
Fabulous. I feel like I have the body of an 18 year old!
How often do youwear jeans?
What is the most common fit problem you have when trying on jeans?
I’m slim but I’m fairly tall. It’s hard to me to find jeans that fit my waist and legs but that are also long enough.
What exactly do youlook for in a perfect pair of jeans?
I want a pair that’s body conscious but not like stockings or jeggings. I think I’m too old for that. I also want a pair that keeps its shape and doesn’t stretch out or shrink. I want it to fit the same every time I put them on.
What’s yourfavorite Silver Jeans Co. fit?
I like Konrad the best. The fit was just right, and the rise was right too. I had space in the knees but it was still slim. I also love wearing them bunched at the ankle. They fit perfectly.
What makes itbetter than other jeans you’ve tried?
Most of the time when I try on a slim or skinny jean there is no give in the knees. These were slim but had stretch so they gave me room in the knees and room to actually move around.
If you could describe theway you feel in our jean with one word, what would it be?
Home. It felt like home. It felt good. It didn’t feel like I was wearing someone else’s jeans when I first put them on.
Do you have anygood memories with jeans?
I got married in jeans 37 years ago! My then wife and I were always more casual, so she wore a printed dress and I wore white jeans. We were never the traditional type and kind of broke the mold a little bit.
