"A gentleman accepts the responsibility of his actions and bears the burden of their consequences.” - William Faulkner

“My favorite shirts are vintage Brooks Brothers’ oxford dress shirts. I like seeing the old tags and knowing it’s from back in the day. Maybe the elbow is somewhat threadbare: I like funky shirts with a little history. You can only create that with time.” - Ezra Koenig (Vampire Weekend) am 03.10.2017 im Wall Street Journal

"Men never wore shorts when I was young. There are few things I would rather see less, to tell you the truth. I'd just as soon see someone coming toward me with a hand grenade. This is one of the worst changes, by far. It's disgusting. To have to sit next to grown men on the subway in the summer, and they're wearing shorts? It's repulsive. They look ridiculous, like children, and I can't take them seriously." - Fran Lebowitz

“Hear no evil, speak no evil, and you won't be invited to cocktail parties.” -  Oscar Wilde

"I have about 100 pairs of pyjamas. I like to see people dressed comfortably." - Hugh Hefner

“Every time you get dressed remember that, if you die, that’s your ghost outfit forever.” - Jennifer Wright

“Ich trinke Champagner, wenn ich froh bin, und wenn ich traurig bin. Manchmal trinke ich davon, wenn ich allein bin; und wenn ich Gesellschaft habe, dann darf er nicht fehlen. Wenn ich keinen Hunger habe, mache ich mir mit ihm Appetit, und wenn ich hungrig bin, lasse ich ihn mir schmecken. Sonst aber rühre ich ihn nicht an, außer wenn ich Durst habe.” - Lily Bollinger

“Style is the answer to everything. A fresh way to approach a dull or dangerous thing. To do a dull thing with style is preferable to doing a dangerous thing without it. To do a dangerous thing with style is what I call art.” - Charles Bukowski

“I never understood people who don’t have bookshelves.” - George Plimpton

“I used to buy all my shirts at Brooks [Brothers], but that was completely ruined about 20 years ago. They discontinued the shirt I liked. If I had only known this—I mean, if you’re going to discontinue an item that thousands and thousands of people buy, announce it. Say, ‘We will no longer be making our excellent Brooks Brothers cotton shirts that we made for 5,000 years. We’re going to change them in some awful way. We’re alerting you so you can buy a lifetime supply.’ Shirts don’t go bad, they’re not peaches.” - Fran Lebowitz

“I know there are people out there who spend countless hours discussing the correct depth of trouser cuffs and length of coats. But the reality is that dressing well is like writing well: you learn the rules that are fashionable at the time, then you develop your own style by breaking them in order to better accommodate your unique life. Those who slavishly follow the rules of dress are really just followers of fashion: the fashion of a particular time, past or present.” - Bruce Boyer

“Try not to dress how you feel. Dress how you want to feel.” - The Trad

“Verleumdung ist wie die Wespe, die uns lästig umschwärmt. Man darf nicht nach ihr schlagen, wenn man sie nicht sicher tötet, sonst greift sie noch wütender an als zuvor.” - Nicolas Chamfort

“It’s interesting to contemplate Warhol, one of the most transformative and inventive artists, dressing in Brooks Brothers. He lived at a time when creativity was something you did, not something you inked onto your body, posted on Instagram, or purchased to seem “edgy” or “artsy”.” - Andy Hurvitz

“Die selbstsichere Frau verwischt nicht den Unterschied zwischen Mann und Frau - sie betont ihn.” -Coco Chanel
