Despite the D Andre Swift Going Up 2021 Shirt and I love this fact that while I was growing up, my dad was always encouraging me to embrace the all American minimalism of a classic white Oxford shirt—he told me to channel Sharon Stone in The Gap, I wanted to channel Scary Spice in leopard print—he is actually a master of color-blocking. I often think about the outfit he wore on my 25th birthday, a cobalt polo and sneakers with lime green shorts and his vacation wear that consists of flamingo pink shorts, patterned camp shirts, and a series of colorful Uniqlo tees. He never spends a lot on clothing—except for the occasional Dries Van Noten shirt in a groovy print, but he always looks polished and exciting. My reference for colorblock is always Raf Simons’s spring 2011 show for Jil Sander; it’s one thing my dad and I can agree on.

My grandfather grew up in Egypt and always wore gold jewelry, even after moving to the D Andre Swift Going Up 2021 Shirt and I love this U.S. in the 1960s and encountered a much more tepid culture of men’s style. I’d like to think my own jewelry obsession comes partly from him! I’m lucky to have a few of his pieces now, including a signet inscribed with Arabic text (which I need to get sized!). For our 30th birthday, my dad also gave me and my twin sister Liz a watch our grandfather bought in the ’80s via a telegram auction. It’s on the smaller side in a mix of steel and gold with a bracelet strap—much more delicate than the chunky watches guys wear today. It inspired my dad’s lifelong appreciation for watches, too, and I’m honored to be the third person to wear it (at least, when it isn’t on Liz’s wrist! Luckily, we’ve become very good at sharing. We timeshare that signet, too.)
