(Gentleman: A Timeless Fashion)

Q: What is the biggest mistake you see men making today as regards clothing and/or grooming?

A: It has always been seen as a mistake if a 40-year-old man tries to dress like a twenty something. I notice today that many men of 40 dress like 8 or 12 year olds. When I bring my seven-year-old daughter to school, I’m the only man who doesn’t wear sneakers, baseball cap and sweat shirt. I never wear suit and tie at that time of the day but even in a v-neck, corduroy, brogues and a raincoat I look like an alien. I think it is not good for children if their parents and all other grown ups dress like themselves (ed: I believe he means “like children”). The worst mistake in grooming is to shave one’s eyebrows in the shape of a fine line.

From an exclusive interview by Nicola Linza of Manner of Man and Cristoffer Neljesjö of Welldressed, with noted author and style journalist Bernhard Roetzel. Read the whole thing here.
