Interviewer: Do you think clothes make the man?
Freddie: It depends upon what kind of person you are. For what we do, clothes are very important, and if you know where to get them it helps.
Interviewer: Do you spend a lot of time in front of the mirror?
Freddie: If I have time, yes. I’m a very vain person and, yeah, I do.
Interviewer: Do you ever think about the mirror while you’re in front of it, what effect your image has upon it?
Freddie: No, I don’t go that deep into it. I have other things to think about. I have quite a few at home, different shapes and sizes, but I don’t think there’s any kind of chemical reaction.
Interviewer: Could you compare yourself to another human being?
Freddie: No way. I think I’m totally original. I’m sure there are many people who see themselves in me, but that’s to them. I’m me, basically, and that’s how I like to be.
