My Style: Rory Flynn, AKA DJ MAKossa
Head of Operations and Founder, The Bump & Hustle STL
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.
Is there any person or character whose style you really admire? Serge Gainsbourg was always killing it.
