Describe your personal style. I try to wear styles that are more classic as opposed to trendy. My years living in Seattle and San Francisco certainly influenced my style choices in that I enjoy wearing layers and quality-made goods that are handmade in the USA or, ideally, locally made.


How would you relate what you wear to your music, or the music you like to play? I try to wear clothing styles that don’t have an expiration date, and I aim to do the same with music I play.

What item from your closet can you not live without? I found a Woolrich jacket years ago in San Francisco that I really love. It is a multicolored, Southwestern-style, vintage wool jacket that I believe has a very classic look.

What are your top five essential clothing staples? Wolverine 1000 Mile boots, Pendleton Woolen Mills wool button-up shirts, Vans shoes, Levi’s denim jeans and jackets and Unionmade conductor-style overalls.

What is your favorite clothing/accessory item? Tucker & Bloom Rich Medina 45 Record Bag in olive green. They are handmade in Nashville, Tennessee.

Where do you shop in STL? YuMe, Dead Wax Records and STL Style on Cherokee; Levine Hat Company Downtown and East + West in Kirkwood.

Is there any person or character whose style you really admire? Serge Gainsbourg was always killing it.
