Once upon a time, I was sleeping with a very well-dressed man. While walking to the bathroom in his striped shirt, I realised the lining on the inside his cuffs was a contrasting floral pattern. It was a secret detail that only a select few - the wearer and those familiar with the brand - would’ve known about.
“I like this level of attention to detail,” I said to him. “It reminds me of the Mies van der Rohe quote God is in the details.”
“That’s Paul Smith for you.” he said.
