WIJW FRIENDS

WIJW has become an incredible venue for meeting brilliant, lovely and talented people from around the world! While WIJW has aforded us quite a few perks (yes we’ve been wined and dined!), the most spectacular gift have been the people, and the wonderful opportunity to give and receive inspiration. Marvelous muses constantly present themselves — artists, artisans, designers, photographers — and so many have combined their talents to making WIJW what it is.

And boy do we love hearing appreciative words – this for instance:

“….I can imagine, but for only just a single breath of time, what it must be like to feel myself in a bespoke Dior suit over a fitted dress shirt; the crisp cuffs of which are just peeking out from my blazer sleeve. Cuff links gleaming in the sunlight as I check my perfectly polished watch.

My point is that you make clothing so appealing that, even as a woman, I want to dress like you. Or really, a feminine version but with much more elegance and sophistication than I am currently showcasing.

Please know that I am extraordinarily aware of the time, money, effort and years of learning and perfecting that has brought you to where you are and I respect every moment of it. You have perfected dressing to such a point that you actually make it look easy. Which, of course, it is most certainly not.

You’ve inspired me to begin my own journey to find clothing that can be fitted just right to my frame and that will hold up, in style as well as quality, for decades. I don’t need to spend a fortune, however, I don’t need seven cheaply made black dresses that fit poorly, either. I need one that fits and compliments my frame and makes me feel good when I wear it. I want clothing from now on that draws attention my assets and away from my perceived flaws. I know this is not a days worth of work, however, I know it will be worth the time spent. …..”

Unbelievably touching and beautifully put! Thank you Cayta Jordan!

james_andrew_bwFor our pictures today, I spent an afternoon with my dear friend Jeff Sternfeld who I met via WIJW – he’s a dashing and super sophisticated young entrepreneur and as you can see from the photo (top), he’s also quite a gifted photographer! I’m dressed in a Tom Ford brown/black wool cashmere plaid jacket, brown and white cotton micro hounds tooth shirt with French cuffs, brown cotton corduroy pants, brown wool knit tie, brown and ivory silk glen plaid pocket square, brown suede tasseled loafers, brown leather belt with rose gold buckle and Tom Ford Dimitry sunglasses, antique Scottish agate cuff links, vintage Rolex and my fragrance is Tom Ford Oud.

FYI We have finally sorted out a last minute trip to Portugal and my fabulous friends and fans in Portugal have been reaching out across the Atlantic to help us create the most spectacular journey to share with you all. I am so excited to finally meet so many of my gorgeous Portuguese fans!
