Bret Easton Ellis’s American Psycho was savaged by critics when it first came out back in 1991 but has gone on to be a modern classic unique in its style. The book is both dark and sinister with a twist of psychotic comedy that engroses the main character Patrick Bateman.
The lead character is both slick and stylish and is said to have suits made by Edward Sexton in the book. With an obsession to seek perfection in all areas of life, Patrick even has an uncomfortable obsession with needing better business cards than everyone around him. A true psycho and a rather unconventional mention for Edward Sexton.

Earlier in the evening I was having dinner with Jeanette at a
new Northern Italian restaurant near Central Park on the Upper East
Side that was very expensive. Earlier in the evening I was wearing a
suit tailored by Edward Sexton and thinking sadly about my family’s
house in Newport. Earlier in the night after dropping Jeanette off I
stopped at M.K. for a fund-raiser that had something to do with Dan
Quayle, who even I don’t like.
