“I can tell when someone’s wearing Charvet from a distance — even dark colors stand out," says Kelly, adding that Obama often wears them, too. “A tie is the only true way men can make some sort of statement.” WWD notes that the police force dresses more sharply under his leadership: “Detectives are looking better than ever before," Kelly admitted. Does that make our city safer? "I think they feel better and that probably makes them work better." [WWD]
