He mentioned that they had an intricate process leading to the ultimate outfit choice. When it came to the suit, they explored different avenues, considering the actor’s focus on fit.

He closed our conversation by saying that Daniel sets out an example that it is always better to set your own style trend rather than conforming to the crowd.
