“You have to think long and hard about what you’re going to wear for your arraignment in U.S. District Court,” Stone says in a video released Thursday by The Daily Caller.

At his preliminary court appearance last week in Florida, Stone appeared in a casual polo following the unannounced FBI raid on his Fort Lauderdale home.

Stone is a longtime fan of fashion, authoring a book featuring his style tips last year and releasing an annual “Best and Worst Dressed List.”

“You don’t want to dress above the voters if you’re running for public office. I also did not want to dress today in one of my double-breasted Savile Row English suits because it would be a little too wealthy looking,” says Stone, adding, “and I’m dirt poor at this point, having been destroyed financially by a two-year inquisition by Robert Mueller and his partisan hit squad.”

“I wanted to dress in a little more muted way, although it’s important to always look great,” Stone, 66, explains while wearing the same suit he wore to court earlier this week.

Stone then goes on to describe several of his sartorial choices, including a Windsor collar shirt, French cuffs, onyx cufflinks (a gift, he says, from his first wife) and a custom-made suit.

“You never button the top button unless you are 100 percent Italian and I’m only half-Italian. I’m Italian from the waist down,” Stone tells viewers.

“Of course your neckwear is crucial,” Stone advises, saying his particular type of knit tie is an “absolute requirement for every gentleman.”

Stone even details what he’s sporting under his suit, saying, “Now I don’t want to get into this too far, but I’m wearing underwear. I was not going commando today.”

“And my underwear is by Charvet of Paris. And yes, they’re boxers, not briefs.”

Without explaining why boxers are preferable over briefs for court appearances, Stone simply states, “This is what you need to wear when you go to court.”
