Sidewalk Style: Down Home in the District

At a FotoWeek DC event, we learn that the photos aren’t the only things worth looking at.

Jarrett Christian, 27
Photographer, Studio Five

What he’s wearing: Jeans, shirt, and vest from Ralph Lauren; leather belt from Skeeter’s Tack Shop in Fauquier; Kangaroo-leather boots from Australia: “I won ’em in a hand of cards last year.”

What do you like to wear, and how would you classify your look? “I usually just wear black or gray and trusty blue jeans and boots. If I had to say, it’d be American—simple and timeless is the attempt. I’ve always liked American history and the old styles that go with it. Particularly the 1890s to the 1940s.”

What was the last thing you bought? “A sweet secondhand jacket.”

What’s on your wish list for winter? “Same as always—bourbon and lots of snow in Washington.”

Every man should own: “A great pair of boots, a good belt, and a pistol.”

Rachel says: It must be my down-home roots, but I’ve always liked a rustic, classic look on a man, and these boots and tweedy vest fit the bill. If you’re looking to replicate the look, search for Justin boots on eBay.
