For most people, fashion is a way of expression; for me it was a support system.

very once in a while, life knocks us down. Like it's trying to show us who's boss. One of the biggest blows I've ever encountered was my divorce.

At the onset, it was polarizing for me to take on the moniker of 'The Prep Guy'. When people think of prep, they think of the Kennedy compound or weekending in the Hamptons.
