What is style to you?
Michael Dreher is employed at the tie manufacturer Drake’s London. He moonlights as a jazz DJ.
”An unbiased and natural sense of form and function. To be comfortable in yourself and the way you dress. To not actively seek approval but be grateful if is occurs. The right tools for the right time and place. Genuine style cannot be forced.”
What does the British style heritage symbolise to you?
”A heritage must keep evolving in order to stay alive. Fashion companies must invest in local manpower and respect that heritage. Integrity is important.”
What kind of tie do you prefer and how do you wear it?
“I let it complement my overall outfit. I prefer everything to match rather than for the tie to stand out. My favourites tend to be the casual ties, quite often with a vintage feel.”
