Martin has worked as a journalist based in New York since 2001 and is the author of five books, dealing with American politics. For this issue he met up with another New York based writer, and style icon – David Coggins to talk about American style and Italian cocktails. – Coggins is a highly entertaining man to have a discussion with. I really liked his theory about how the best dressed men usually romanticise other countries. Brits want to dress like Italians, and Japanese like Americans.
