Best Dressed

These individuals each have their own personal, unique style.

(page 6 of 6)

What single item in your closet defines your style?
I try not to get too focused on one specific item of clothing, but I have a pair of Ecco oxfords that fit perfectly and look great. I’m always on the lookout for a great shoe, and this pair takes the cake.

What’s do you think is the worst fashion faux-pas?
Wearing clothing that doesn’t fit well. If you don’t wear the same size you wore in college, it’s okay! Find clothes that fit you well, regardless of the size. You’ll look better and feel better about what
you’re wearing.

Where do you find fashion inspiration?
I get most of my inspiration from the men who submit their photos and show off their style at my site, There aren’t a lot of options for bigger guys when it comes to style, so the community we’re building has really pushed me to put together better outfits and to enjoy creating new and interesting looks.

Who are your fashion role models?
Nick Frost, Anthony Anderson, James Gandolfini, Ernest Hemingway, Zach Galifianakis. Big guys that can make just about anything they wear look good.

Finish this sentence: “I wouldn’t be caught dead wearing…”

What’s a fashion trend you wish would go away?
I’m tired of skinny jeans. Well-tailored pants win out with me any day.
