Sidewalk Style: Justice for All

This week’s Sidewalk Style subject mixed up his preppy weekend basics with exotic accessories.

Brandon Dunn, 22
Paralegal, Department of Justice

What he’s wearing:
J. Crew shorts and shoes, Gap T-shirt, and H&M blazer. The glasses are Ray-Ban. The necklace is from a friend’s trip to Kenya; the silver bracelet is from a trip Brandon took to Agadir, Morocco.

Tell us about your style.
“I like to go for relaxed looks, but I also like to turn heads. I like to have people think, ‘Oh, I never would have thought to do that.’ ”

So your first day at the Justice Department is Monday. It’s going to be a bit conservative, right?
“I just bought a few new suits from Jones New York. I think I’ll wear a patterned shirt and a solid tie. I recently bought a red Longchamp case. I’m trying to decide if I can use it.”

What’s on your fall wish list?
“I need a new trench coat. It will need to have a popped collar and a fierce belt. I saw one at Burberry . . . but it was $1,700. I’m still looking.”

Rachel says:
I spotted Brandon on Sunday, when the temperatures were anything but cool. So while a jacket seems like the last thing a guy would reach for, it turns out that the light-colored cotton is surprisingly comfortable. And if he needs to take it off, a jacket slung over the shoulder would look pretty slick, too.
