Name: Christopher La Fleur.

Spotted at: 17th and Champa streets.

Profession: H&M worker currently; in the past I have been a barista, a projectionist, a janitor, a server, a bartender, a model and even a camp counselor.

Favorite film: Reservoir Dogs, by Quentin Tarantino.

2013 jam: "Come and Get It," by Selena Gomez.

Style inspirations/icons: Hunter S. Thompson, for his writing and personal style. Marc Jacobs. Any sartorial male, really. Tom Ford has great style. I used to like James Dean, but I feel like I'm transitioning to a more classic and refined look. What James Dean started, Tom Ford has perfected. I'm really into classic, all-American menswear right now, a look that presents a strong man to the world, maybe from the East Coast. It's very preppy and colorful; think Tommy Hilfiger and Ralph Lauren.

Favorite color: Teal.

Favorite accessory: Watches. Every man needs a watch.

Style mantra: Never be the same person twice. I believe people should continue to grow and develop into a new, exciting version of themselves. A lot of people get stuck -- and I don't ever want to be stuck.

Shops at: TJ Maxx, Jack and Amazon has cool fashion. I like looking good, but not paying full price. I'll always splurge on jewelry, though: I only wear real diamonds.

The array of accessories that La Fleur has with him on this day includes two rings and his favorite sterling-silver watch, which is skeleton-ized so that you can see the inner workings and gears.
