Karl Lagerfeld M Magazine Fall 2012 Interview

Karl Lagerfeld Doesn't Like Wearing Sweaters, Suspenders, or Flip-Flops

In the ambition-themed relaunch issue of M Magazine, Karl Lagerfeld says his greatest ambition is "to be impeccably dressed" — and perhaps that's why he has such particular rules about dressing himself.

During a Q&A with the men's quarterly, available this week, Lagerfeld runs down a laundry list of things he won't wear, including t-shirts, hats, and hoodies. "With my hairdo, I can't wear hoods," he explains. A look at what else isn't in the Kaiser's closet, below.

On sweaters: "I don't wear sweaters a lot. I don't know why. I prefer woven material. It feels cleaner. When I wear knits, I have the feeling I get sloppy. For me it is too soft. I like hard wear. I like clothes with discipline, because I think you get more disciplined if you dress yourself in a disciplined way."

On vests and suspenders: "I don't like to wear waistcoats very much anymore. I hate to have something on the stomach. And I hate to wear suspenders. I have the feeling I'm wearing a bra."

On why he only wears custom-made Massaro boots: "Shoes have to be like gloves: flawless, impeccable. I hate sloppy footwear. What I hate most is flip-flops. I'm physically allergic to flip-flops."
