How did you get into fashion: My family didn't have a lot of money for gear growing up so it made me selective about what stuff I would buy. I definitely had to save up for sneakers and try to take care of 'em throughout the semester. My interest in music and movies led me to streetwear and designer fashion naturally followed from there. There was a time when there was not a lot of menswear information online so you really had to dig on forums, blogs and auction sites to find what you liked.

How would you describe your personal style: I try to balance more expressive pieces with solid, everyday staples. New York has also influenced my personal style quite a bit. There's a practicality to the way you have to dress in the city to deal with the volatile weather, commuting and fast pace of life. Despite this, New Yorkers from all walks of life really take pride in expressing themselves through the way they dress. The fact that you can be in the club, on the train or in the grocery store and see great style makes the city a constant source of inspiration.
