Jacket with a pocket square (of course), button down shirts, raw denim jeans, with really nice shoes. It's all about the details, as influenced by Cary Grant or James Bond.

Regarding Quixotic's Square For Square program:
"I think it eliminates a barrier to entry to be a good Samaritan, because you're not giving away money or something that you have to pay to replace. You're able to give something away knowing that you're going to get another one. The Quixotic gentleman is simply someone who wants to help others and is just paying attention to people around him."
"I'm very attracted to the history and story behind products. I want something that has personality."
