Part two of my interview with Michael Hill

Part two of my interview with Michael Hill is now up at StyleForum. You can also find part one here. I had a great time chatting with Michael, and it was a particularly special opportunity for me since he designs most of my favorite ties. Here’s an excerpt from the second half of our conversation:

“The only thing I always say is that of course there are rules, and it helps to know the rules in order to break them, however subtly one intends to do that. But I always stress that whilst we have all these rules, one should have a degree of spontaneity and intuition, and even individuality, about how we wear our clothes. So yes, most of us like to have a dimple in our ties, but that isn’t the only way, and there are certainly other far more important things in life. So long as someone has their own take on things and is enjoying it, I think that’s the most important thing. I think we can sometimes get a bit too huffed up about these things and I suppose in some ways, following the rules too closely can make things a bit boring.” – Michael Hill
