Job: bartender at Club Diversity
Neighborhood: Short North
Hometown: Arcadia, California
Label your style: "Localist vagabond dandyism"
What do you like to wear?
I have a big collection of T-shirts - like, hundreds and hundreds. Usually with a lot of off-color sayings, because I can get away with them. When you're a bartender, you're stuck on stage for hours on end. And especially drunks, they sit there and stare at you and pick you apart. So I give them things to look at.
So do you look very different day-to-day?
This is my thing: I always have a comb [in my back pocket] that ties together the colors in the outfit. It's my trademark thing; everybody's always checking to make sure my comb matches.
Where do you like to shop?
I shop along High Street, between Urban Outfitters on Campus and the southern end of the Short North. I'm totally into promoting. I want the place I live to be a better place.
Do you have style pet peeves?
I totally believe that males should be brightly colored, and I hate the fact that when I go to buy T-shirts, lots of times, the women's version of it is in bright green or pink, and the guy's version is in black or blue. I don't want that. I want attention. I love florals.
