When is it worth investing in an expensive item of clothing?
Invest in something that is timeless; items like a black suit or a black leather jacket are versatile and will always work.

What are three basic must-have items in a man's wardrobe?
A plain white T-shirt, a black blazer and a decent pair of jeans. And I think any professional man should have a proper pen to sign his contracts with, to show that he means business.

When does wearing a hat work and when does it not?
Wear hats when you have a bad hair day, but be aware that hats do not necessarily fit every style. I would not recommend men wear them on important occasions, especially on a date.

What is appropriate gym attire?
Wear actual sportswear that is designed for the gym as they can help wick sweat and keep you looking and smelling presentable. Avoid wearing your old T-shirts, which can make you look sloppy.

What do you think is the most underrated fashion item?
A stylish pair of socks that could potentially make a style statement. It is also a way to let you express your personality.
