How would you describe your style?
Streetwear with a mix of contemporary.
Where do you usually shop for clothes?
I usually shop at Una Mae’s, Urban Outfitters and H&M.
What piece in your wardrobe can’t you live without?
Probably my Cole Haan shoes. They’re comfy, look good and go with everything—the best of all worlds right there.
Who and what inspires your style?
I follow this blog called “The Classy Issue”—it just pretty much sums up everything I like all into one page. Also A$AP Rocky, Nicholas Wooster and Ricki Hall.
Would you tell me a bit more about your beard? Do you recommend any products?
I just cut about three inches of my beard off, so it looks clean. The products I use are by Beardbrand and BeardScent. I haven’t seen my face in about two-and-a-half years but I don’t mind. It’s worth having the beard.
