Jeans: From Target. "By Mossimo. Hit that Target special!"

Shoes: By Palladium. "I can't wear steel-toed boots when I drum because they are too heavy. So these are French military boots. Definitely my favorite pair of boots."

Hat: "I usually wear a snapback, but it's cold. I've had this thing for years."

Jacket: "I found the jacket, I think it's American Rag, for $1.50 at a thrift store. We silkscreened our band's logo on the back. ... SRVVLST is going to start its own silkscreening company soon."

Gauges: From Evolved.

Hand tattoo: A ram's head, his zodiac sign. "A 22-year-old impulse buy."

Wolf head: From a turnpike gas station; bought when the band was heading to a gig.

Trap case: "This used to be my dad's, who is a jazz drummer. It used to have stickers on it from when he did '42nd Street' on Broadway. Those definitely had to go."

Cymbals: "I have a cymbal endorsement through Soul Tone. [Local artist] Zack Holloway designed my logo on here — a bear wearing a snapback yelling. Seems fitting."
