    1.
    I’m not good at subtlety. If you’re not going to be discreet and quiet, then just go all the way and have the balls to shave off your eyebrows, bleach your hair, and put on some big bracelets.

    2.
    Working out is modern couture. No outfit is going to make you look or feel as good as having a fit body. Buy less clothing and go to the gym instead.

    3.
    I’ve lived in Paris for six years, and I’m sorry to say that the Ugly American syndrome still exists. Sometimes you just want to say “Stop destroying the landscape with your outfit.” Still, from a design standpoint, I’m tempted to redo the fanny pack. I look at it as a challenge—it’s something to react against.

    4.
    When a suit gets middle-of-the-road it kind of loses me—it has to be sharp and classic and almost forties.

    1.
    A lot of fashion houses design for the catwalk and not the street—then you see the clothes on a regular guy and it’s a mess. Don’t disguise your personality behind labels; impose it on the clothes.

    2.
    The most embarrassing thing a man can own is a disposable razor. They’re for women. And speaking of grooming, there’s nothing less flattering than shaved legs.

    3.
    Wearing a pair of high-tops with a suit deconstructs the look, and that’s important. I like the way high-tops and pants act together. It’s like the effect of rolled-up sleeves for your trousers. Just make sure the socks match your sneakers, not the pants. If you like black high-tops, wear black socks. White, white.

    4.
    I don’t really think I know a man who wouldn’t look good in black. Black is always good. It’s the basic.

    Gap’s creative director Patrick Robinson, who has designed for brands such as Giorgio Armani, Anne Klein, Perry Ellis and Paco Rabanne, shared his top ten rules of style with Details magazine.

    It was recently rumored that Kanye West was interning with Gap however Mr. Robinson dispelled those rumors stating “He’s not my intern! He’s a friend of mine, and he just likes to see what we do. I tell him, if he wants people to take him seriously in fashion, they have to see blood first! They have to see the blood and the sweat, to see that he really wants it — but he definitely has the capability.” Robinson ended with “I keep telling him he should stick to music.”

    1.
    The coolest guy out there is the one who knows what’s going on and has all the information on fashion but then picks the one thing that works for him. That’s all you need—and a brain in your head.

    2.
    The five things every man should have in his wardrobe are a great pair of jeans, the right-fitting pair of khakis, a bunch of T-shirts, a brilliant watch, and a pair of camping boots.

    3.
    This may sound sort of silly to most men, but a way to develop personal style is to admire someone you think looks cool who you kind of resemble. No one is going to look like Johnny Depp, so don’t go there. But if you need some help, pick someone you dig and watch the way he dresses.

    4.
    Everyone wants to be comfortable. They want jeans where the waist isn’t tight and the legs are loose, but that ideal gets carried too far. I’m not a guy who thinks everybody should wear everything slim, but don’t make your clothes so damn comfortable that you’re not attractive to people.
