How would you describe your taste in clothing?
Conservative and very functional. My wife would say way too conservative.
7+ What's the newest thing in your closet?
My children were playing Pirate bingo and won a tie for me. It has a boat embroidered on it, which made it perfect for dear old Dad.
7+ What's the oldest thing in your closet?
Probably an old rusty set of bolt cutters that I made good use of during a 1983 Annapolis Fall Series. After we broke the mast, I used the cutters to get us out of the tangle of ropes. Needless to say, it was a somber ride back to Spa Creek that day.
Do you have a true standby that you wear to feel good?
Yes, I'm thin and have wide shoulders, so I had a suit made. It's a perfect fit.
What have you held on to for sentimental reasons?
A T-shirt from The Ocean Racing Club of Baltimore, a club we started as a joke.
What's the most expensive item in your closet?
A Henri Lloyd set of foul weather gear. My wife convinced me to take her and two of our children to England and France and that's where she got this great set of foul weather gear for my Father's Day present.
What's the least expensive item in your closet?
A homemade tie that I made to wear to a party at Bob Price's house. I painted a picture of his boat, the Sara B II, on the tie.
What's the wildest outfit you've ever worn?
I don't wear wild things. My wife forced me to buy a pink Brooks Brothers button-down shirt and that's as wild as I get.
Do you have any shopping tips you'd like to share?
The most important thing to me is to buy from stores that stand behind their products. If they are willing to do that, the clothing will not normally fall apart in a year.
