Who are you?
I'm Austin, a part of the "All Summa" & "Saints" collective.
What Inspires your style?
I think a lot of it has to do with comfort for me. I don't want to wear something that's looks cool but feels uncomfortable. I also think how I feel is 100% going to impact what I wear.
How do you define Chicago Style? How is it reflected in your personal style, if at all?
Chicago style is as raw as it gets. Everything shifts by each neighborhood. Some parts look like a chief keef video, while other areas offer extreme amounts of individuality and creativity.
What do you look for from Sir & Madame?
Premium. Everything is so detailed and made to such a high standard.
Favorite Chicago shopping destinations (not limited to clothing)
Lol not to be biased but I really love what Sir & Madame is doing. Notre, Leaders, RSVP Gallery. Some of my favorites.
Favorite websites (not limited to fashion)
Ssense is my favorite web store.
What are you currently reading and/or listening to?
"The Power of Positive Thinking" by Norman Vincent Peale. I'm listening to a lot of Lana Del Rey, G.o.D Jewels and Lil Uzi right now. Justin Beiber new album is nuts too lol.
Favorite Chicago restaurant, bar or lounge
Favorite restaurant and drink combo is Luxbar for me. Any other day I'm eating pizza and tacos lol.
What were you wearing 10 years ago?
2006....I 100% had on some LRG and Jordan's or Air Force 1's. I'm a size 31, my jeans were about a 34.
In 3 words or less...Style Is?
