We spoke to Benjamin from @sartorialstylescom who gave us the scoop on his signature shoes and suits.

Undandy Gentlemen: Benjamin Kalt

Describe your style

I really like a modern slim fit on suits while I prefer the wider lapels often seen on style icons from the 60s and 70s like Cary Grant.

I always try to integrate a modern or catchy twist into my outfits without leaving the "area" of classic style.

My goal is to look classic, but not like a grandpa.

Which Undandys did you choose and why?

For me, a Double Monk strap is a statement piece that is yet extremely versatile.

I chose the '15 last for a nonchalant and Italian look because my other shoes and boots lean more towards the conservative and British side.

Dream dinner party guest?

Probably Tom Ford. I love how he brought back ticket pockets and wide peak lapels to the modern suit styling nearly on his own.

For me, he is the definition of a modern gentleman.

Life Philosophy?

It is hard to answer that question without being kitschy! I think the best way to live is to try to reach your own goals without redlining other people.
