Spotted at: Rhinoceropolis, at 35th and Brighton Boulevard.
Profession: I'm a pedicab driver and graphic designer.
Favorite film: A short film called "My Name Is Oona," from 1969.
2013 jam: I really like this band called The Beachniks.
Style inspirations/icons: Esquerita. That was the stage name of singer, songwriter and pianist Eskew Reeder Jr., originally known as Steven Quincy Reeder Jr. He inspired Little Richard, and I think we need to go back to having more sculptural and textile hair in menswear, like those two did.
Favorite color: Orange.
Favorite accessory: Hats.
Style mantra: I don't really have one.
Shops at: I don't shop anymore. I like to stumble upon items and let them find me. I just flow into clothes -- although I thrift-shop or receive things as gifts sometimes.
