Mr Klingseisen's Recommendations

FAVOURITE RESTAURANT AND DISH

La Fontelina, Capri. Insalata di polpo and a bottle of really chilled white wine. It’s not going to get better than this.”

BEST BAR

Goldene Bar in Munich. I really like the diversity of the people that go there and the location speaks for itself.”

VACATION CHOICE

“I like ‘‘la mare” a lot but also enjoy city trips. I’m in love with places like Formentera, Capri or Sardinia. Places with sun, fish, white wine and deceleration.”

TOP CITY

“I enjoy being around places all over the world but I definitely have to pick my hometown, Munich – besides an ocean it has so many things to offer. And I really enjoy its village-like pace and snugness.”

FAVOURITE HOTEL

Hotel Monteverdi in Castiglioncello del Trinor, Tuscany. It’s simply a complete downshift.”

TYPE OF BAG

“Due to the fact that I have plenty of space to store my stuff at the MTMT gym and the VOR office I don’t need to carry much stuff to work. But in case I have to, I carry a brown vintage weekender bag.”

note

FAVOURED BRAND

A.P.C. – I love its jeans, in fact, they are the only ones I’ve been buying for almost 10 years now. Same goes for pullovers but for these I also like Maison Martin Margiela or ‘‘classics” like Malo.”

ESSENTIAL WARDROBE ITEM

“A light blue Oxford shirt. I think it can be worn at any occasion. You can display it pretty neatly but also with rolled-up sleeves and jeans. I sometimes even wear it together with sweatpants. I think it’s the perfect companion to any style.”

note

MOST BEAUTIFUL WOMAN

“Hanna Wolf – my girlfriend!”

STYLE ICON

“This might be pretty commonplace, but I think Steve McQueen. He was able to "do it all". He looked awesome dressed in black tie but also wearing a simple jumper, chinos and some sort of sneakers. Nowadays I respect Manuel Frei’s style. He always hits the mark – never over the top. I personally think people tend to overdo their styles a bit too much but that’s just how I see it.”

note

STYLE TIP

“Know your dimensions and proportions. Know what fits you well. Never masquerade as someone you are not. Feeling comfortable in what you wear is essential. Yanking on your wardrobe too much is never good and most of the time a sign of less self-assurance.”

note

TAILOR

“All my shirts and suits are tailor-made. Due to my body proportions they have to be. Unfortunately my tailor (Mr Pavlowitz) passed away recently. May god rest his soul.”

note

BEST SHIRT BRAND

“My shirts are made by Emanuel Berg of Munich. Mr and Mrs Dorls do a perfect job advising me and providing all the fabrics and cuts that I imagine.”

FAVOURITE SUIT

“As mentioned before, Mr Pavlowitz used to make my suits. I like Tom Ford and also the stuff Scabal makes. Classic and basic – nothing fancy or trendy.”

note

CUT OF TROUSERS

“A straight or slightly tapered leg is essential for me when it comes to trousers. I really like some of Aspesi ’s styles.”

JEANS BRAND

A.P.C. New Standard. It’s slightly fitted at the bottom to give it the appearance of a straight leg. Any hint of "bootcut" is an absolute no-no for me.”

UNDERWEAR CHOICE

“Definitely briefs. I hate having too much fabric round my thighs. I go for Calvin Klein Underwear 365 days a year but I’m open to trying something new…”

PREFERRED JACKET STYLE

“Again, the more classic and basic the better it is. I like trench coats but also really heavy aviator leather jackets.”

note

SHOE MAKER

“Since I’ve always been into sneakers and due to the fact that I own my own sneaker brand now, I choose VOR’s 1B in white. It’s timeless and suits any style I could possibly wear.”

FAVOURITE GROOMING PRODUCT

“Coconut oil. I use it for everything: hair, face, body. It really caresses my and other people’s skin…”

DREAM CAR

“I’m not too into cars but I like the impression made by the Maserati Ghibli or the Mercedes-Benz Puch G.”

WATCH BRAND

“A 1976 Rolex Datejust, with jubilee bracelet and champagne-coloured dial.”

ESSENTIAL GADGET

“My mobile phone. But I really like the moments when I can turn it off.”

note

BEST BOOK

Opus Pistorum by Henry Miller. I read it as a teenager, I read it in my twenties and it still comes along with me now.”

FAVOURITE ALBUM

“I listen to a lot of different kinds of music. Right now I’m really enjoying Gregory Porter’s music.”
