Sidewalk Style: Sunday Best
We stop an environmental-policy analyst in an Easter Sunday spring suit. By Rachel Cothran
Comments () | Published April 6, 2010

AJ Singletary, 24
Environmental-policy analyst, Department of Transportation

What he’s wearing: Express shirt, vest, and pants with a Ben Sherman tie and tie bar, and Aldo shoes.

Where do you shop in Washington? “I get a fair amount at the outlets. Bargain bins are a good thing. I get basics at Express, Nordstrom, Saks, Banana, and Zara, and I look for accessories in boutiques.”

Are you satisfied with the shopping options? “You have to be careful because if you shop here, you’ll run into a lot of people wearing the same thing. I shop at a place called Jimmy’z in St. Louis when I’m home.”

Tell me about your style. “A little dark. I wear a lot of straight legs, leather, high-tops, and chains.”

How do you dress for work? “This is more like something I’d wear to work. Guys can mix up their look with things like cufflinks and tie bars, so I’ll do that. Sometimes I’ll wear an ascot instead of a tie. Sometimes I get ‘So, you’re wearing that … ’ comments at work, but I kind of like it.”

Rachel says: I like AJ’s take on classic summer suiting. The rolled-up shirt, vest sans jacket, and pocket-watch-style chain all add personality and visual interest to the look.
