Residence WestonDoes the way you dress reflect the types of start-ups you’ve invested in?
I’m drawn to creative entrepreneurs. I backed Twitter very early in its life, invested in Tumblr when it first started, and Foursquare. These companies were very creative, with young founders and young teams.
I worked at start-up companies in Silicon Valley for 10 years where the dress is very casual. I didn’t start my career on Wall Street. I don’t own cuff links.So where do you shop? Do you buy anything specific each year?
I tend to buy a watch every year. I hit a few stores religiously every spring and fall: Earnest Sewn in Manhattan, and I shop at Barneys here in Boston and Rag & Bone on Newbury Street. I joke that I like wearing suits, but it’d be really weird wearing a suit for my day job. We have a shareholder meeting every year, and I put on a suit then. But for my office, it’d freak everyone out if I wore a suit.
