Where do you like to shop?
“There’s a place down in Seattle called Red Light that I like, they have a lot of vintage clothes and stuff. And then just online.”
What/who is your style inspiration?
“There’s a guy named Joey Molland from a band called Badfinger. I basically try to steal his look as much as possible. Also Connor Oberst from the band Bright Eyes.”
How has your style changed over time?
“I went through a period where I wore a lot of John Denver disco shirts [laughs], but I came out of that. It really depends on what I’m into at the time. And what I’m listening to.”
What brands are you wearing right now?
“Oh, I have no idea. This is a Star Wars t-shirt, I can tell you that. But I don’t really like to represent brands.”
