as he answers our Signature Style questions which puts the fashion spotlight on "regular" gay men across the country.
Describe the sensation you get after you make a killer find.
It's like closing a deal. I always shop with a very clear image of what my wardrobe is lacking so if I find something that fits the bill it's like crossing something off my checklist.
Do you put a lot of effort into selecting the perfect underwear?
Totally, I have little junk in the trunk so I need something to work with what I got.
How much time a day do you spend on your hair?
Are you a product junkie?
I'm a complete product junkie, skincare, haircare, self tanning lotions, all of it. I can't live without it.
Where do you shop?
H&M, Consigment Shops, Winners, American Eagle Outfitters, ZARA
Do you tend to be attracted to men with style similar to yours? Or the exact opposite?
I like someone well put together. I generally like someone who shares the same fashion values I do. Whatever you're rocking, rock it well and it'll be attractive.
Is there a particular accessory you can't live without?
I always wear a gold ring. It's a classic band and I like the simplicity of it, it doesn't overwhelm or change the vibe of any outfit I wear.
Where do you get your style information? People on the street? Mags? Celebs?
Usually the stores actually. I look and see what the common pieces are through all the collections at the different venues and you can tell what's gonna take off and work for more than a season before it's outdated.
What are your three favorite articles of clothing and why?
My favorite torn black jeans. They're AE Low Rise Boot cut Slim and they fit like a glove. I have a unique body type so it's impossible to find something to fit properly, these jeans work with everything because they fit so damn well.
Is there one person you tend to go shopping with more than anyone else?
Alone. I never shop with other people, I never end up getting what I actually want. I prefer to trust my gut and wear something I think looks good than represent a friend of mines fashion sense.
If you want to go out and get attention, do you have one foolproof outfit that does the trick?
I have one V neck shirt that plunges way too low, even straight guys end up staring. It's something about the deep V that grabs peoples eye, regardless of orientation.
Are you environmentally conscious when you purchase clothing?
Not in the slightest, I don't even know what that means. I need to do my research.
On average, what percent of your paycheck do you spend on your style (clothes, products, etc.)?
About 30% of my income after rent and bills goes to my wardrobe and product stash.
How long do you typically spend getting ready to go out on a date?
I like about 75 minutes, 60 minutes to shower and get ready and another 15 minutes to get giddy before going out.
How many pairs of shoes do you own?
When buying shoes and clothing, is comfort or style more important?
Style. Hands down. No Question.
