What’s your fashion philosophy? Clothes don’t make a man cool. It’s the man who makes clothes cool. Be an individual.
Favorite designers? Paper Denim & Cloth, Nike, Hugo Boss, and American Apparel. I also love those five-for-$10 i love dc shirts.
Biggest splurge? A pair of sneakers called JB Classics. Only 200 pairs were made, and I own pair number 111. They were $600, but a little flirting with the girl who owned the store in Dallas got me a discount. Still, I paid more for them than for any other sneakers I have.
Best bargain? It’s a tie between some limited-edition Nike Terminators Arizona Final 4 sneakers for $10 from a Nike outlet and a Doug Williams Super Bowl sweatshirt for $2.
Fashion advice? If you can’t afford it, wait a week or two. I guarantee that by then it will be cheaper. And if people dis what you’re wearing, don’t sweat it.
