What do you carry with you on a typical day?MH: I try to keep it light. Phone, wallet, keys...lip balm! I can’t go through my day without lip balm. I also try to have headphones—I listen to a lot of music and podcasts during my commute.
Any activities you’re into at the moment?MH: Fly-fishing. I’m addicted to it. When I go upstate with my family, I always have the fly-fishing gear ready to go.
Where are you originally from?MH: I was born in Minnesota and went to high school just outside of Philadelphia. I also lived in Los Angeles for a little while before I moved to New York—and now I’ve been here 16 years.
What are some other jobs you’ve had before you were a stylist?MH: A variety of things—including bag boy at a golf course and fish-tank cleaner.
What are a few key pieces from J.Crew that you think everyone should have?MH: The new Classic Straight and Classic Relaxed denim fits are great. I also love the new chinos—I like it when pants have a little weight to them. You can’t go wrong with camp socks, and I’m looking forward to picking up some new rugby shirts too.
