Style Local: Andrew Novick
"My thing is the ironic T-shirt," Andrew says. "I've been wearing them forever." He also prefers non sequitur T-shirts, of which "dentalcarie" is clearly representative. "I have a thing about teeth and dentists," he adds. He's brought along a couple more screenprinted shirts, including the wordlessly iconic "Bieber" T-shirt, which is a graphic play on multiple themes: Warlock Pinchers, the Oakland Raiders and Justin Bieber. The wearer, he says cheerily, might get all -- or none -- of the references, but it's still cool. And there's also "Fawn of the Dead." There it is. I mean, what can one say about this shirt?
Of his black cotton pants, Andrew says, "It's the only thing I've worn for the last thirty years. Even as a kid, I never liked jeans." He estimates he has about twenty pairs of black pants and shorts, because, you know, "You can get black pants everywhere." As a rule, he likes to wear contrasting monochromatic outfits: white and black, maybe with some red. And his sunglasses? That came about originally out of necessity: "I needed sunglasses that were big enough to fit over my regular glasses." Then he got Lasik surgery, but the big-shades habit stuck. I'm sure he has hundreds of them, but he does let this out: Some of them he buys at Forever 21.
