In the latest episode of Ask The Experts we get five different perspectives on the menswear mainstay, the suit. Here, the founders of Art Comes First (Sam Lambert & Shaka Maidoh) reflect on the origins of their style, and discuss how men can inject a little personality into their own look.
I can trace the origin of my personal style back to when I was 9 years old. I got Michael Jordan’s book, For The Love Of The Game, and remember the passage where he talked about being excited to get dressed on sundays for church growing up. Most kids his age didn’t like wearing a suit but he embraced it. At that age, all I wanted to do was be like Mike. It wasn’t long before I started paying close attention to what I was wearing. It’s taken me that long to really come into my own, and I’m not fully there yet, but that first instance where it began to matter to me is something I’m glad I’m able to remember.
