Stud of the Month

Meet May’s Stud of the Month: Duncan Quinn, New York’s bespoke suit designer.

If tomorrow you could go on a trip somewhere in the world you’ve never been, where would you go?


The Future.

Who is the coolest client you’ve ever had?

They’re pretty much all cool in their own way. So it makes it very tough to pick.

What’s your favorite beverage? What would you never drink?

The right one at the right time? Never say never.

When did the obsession with cars begin and which is your favorite?

By age 11 my bedroom walls were effectively covered by supercars. I’ve never driven one, but given the choice right now I’d take a Lamborghini Miura SV. It’s tough as cars are like wine, girls and books. You have to be in the right mood to fully appreciate each one. Otherwise it’s just an experience that didn’t excel.

What is your favorite restaurant in the city?

Lavagna. The nutty owner and I get on well. Mostly fueled by a love of fast motorcycles and good wine. Well, that and the pasta being as addictive as crack. 

What name do you like better Mia or Nina?

Depends on how interesting she is. And what she looks like if I’m honest. 
What is your favorite fairytale?

My own. 

What is the best place you’ve ever taken someone on a date?

Probably a table for two on a small island in the middle of the Zambezi River… But again the company makes for the best date, not the place. 

What did the first suit you ever made for yourself look like?

Very much like one of my father’s Savile Row ones. Just a butchered version thereof. Haha.

Do you have a favorite color?

Yes. But what it depends upon all the other colors it is with. 

What is one men’s trend you cannot stand?

Trends. I prefer style. 

How long does it take you to get dressed in the morning?

That very much depends upon what happened the night before. 

Blondes or Brunettes (trick question?)

One of each? 

Coffee or tea?

Coffee in Italy. Tea in England. 

Tea or strumpets?

Strumpets for sure. 

Harry Potter or Drako Malfoy?

The integrity of Harry, with the looks of Drako. 

Motorcycle or Porsche?

Depends which one. In both cases. 

Pizza or Pasta?

Pasta.

Whiskey or wine?

Wine. Unless it’s time for whisky.
