These wooden gauges measure an inch and a half and have a heart cut-out design. Earplugs are Baldursson's favorite accessory.

A friend of Baldursson works at the Colorado Springs-based Yo Yogurt. He represents with this purple rubber bracelet, which is also his favorite color.

AB belt.jpg
His U.K. belt matches his U.K. pants. Baldursson is from Iceland and his mother is British. He moved to Colorado five years ago. The graphic pants are a nice contrast to the red V-neck and black sleeveless hoodie.

AB shoes.jpg

Baldurssson's shoes feature a black-and-white checkerboard print and are simple slip-ons.

Style analysis: Baldursson takes a nihilistic approach to getting dressed. Even though he says he just throws on his clothes, the results are very distinct, and follow a punk-rock ethos of not giving a damn. His U.K. pants are special because his mother is British, and the bracelet has emotional value because of his friend.

Always dress in emotional value, Denver.
