Who: Eric Brewer, 42

What do you do for a living?
“I’m known for organizing the DC Tweed Ride.” [Click here for more info on the Tweed Ride]
And where did you get the idea for that?
“I first saw it in London, and it blew me away. I thought that DC needed one.”
Any favorite places to shop in Washington?
“My current favorite is Dr. K on U Street.”
Brooke says: I first decided to photograph Eric because I thought he perfectly exemplified the rugged dandy. Then I found out he’s the organizer of DC’s dandiest event, and it all made sense. This refined urbanite conveys the look and attitude that the ride is all about.
