Rashon gives us a close-up of his combination skills, very dapper indeed

1. How would you describe your style? Traditional mixed with edgy contemporary.

2. How did you become so stylish? I was in middle school and became frustrated because my parents could not afford the latest brands and styles my cohorts were wearing. So I caught a glimpse of some of my cohorts wearing khakis and polo shirts. Since then, my style has evolved. I am an avid shopper of Goodwill, Thrift Stores, Vintage Stores and the Salvation Army. At least one piece of garment I’m wearing is vintage.

3. What advice would you give someone trying to find their personal style? My advice is the advice I give when I consider outfitting a home. Clip magazine articles of the style you like and the people wearing it…look at them…you clipped them for a reason. Now go buy what you like and put it on. Its personal…Its your style.

4. What’s the best clothing advice you ever received? Try to find what no one else is wearing…

  1. Nice… Paisely is a favorite of mine.

  2. Buddy looks dope… vest, colorful shirt, fancy ties, and is he carrying a pocket watch? If very dapper, I'd say he's a dandy too.
