PORTRAITS IN STYLE AND CULTURE
Meet Billy Davis, Parathlete
What does work mean to you?
To me, work means getting things done. When I think about dressing to get things done, I want my dress to match my attitude. I want to get it done as soon as possible while looking good. So, I want my clothes and shoes to be functional and stylish.
What Makes something a classic?
I’ve always thought of a classic as something that looks good even as times change. A well-tailored tux, a nice watch, a great pair of shoes. Through the 70s, 80s, 90s and beyond, if you’re in a well-tailored suit with a nice pair of shoes and a nice watch, you look good!
What does a pair of boots say about a person's style?
Boots can tell you a lot about someone’s style. But the most important thing boots can tell you is, whether or not they have style! And that’s all that really matters!
