The large brown bag is great for a weekend or a work day. Charon uses it for both.

Charon's T-shirt was designed by Erik Foss Avarice in a tribute to September 11, 2011.

His black boots stand out when paired with shorts -- especially on a blazing summer day.

Style analysis: Charon paints a subtle style with the gray tones in his shirt and shorts. His accessories -- including a brown bag, black aviator shades and black suede boots -- make a strong statment. Even though he's a Denver native, his laid-back, nonchalant style for summer has echoes of eastern Europe.

Don't be afraid to take fashion advice from other cultures, Denver.
