CollegeFashionista: How would you describe your personal style?
Bob Just: When I think of my style I think of home, New England. My style changes as often as the weather does—one minute it could be raining and 30 minutes later it could be sunny skies, it just depends on the day. Some days I look at my closet and think, what's it going to be today? It could be an oxford and khakis kind of day with some boat-side footwear or maybe a cotton pocket tee with some fitted jeans and casual loafers. Underneath it all, my style is shamelessly inspired by companies like J.Crew and I am okay with that. They know how to put it together and I would gladly be dressed by one of their personal shoppers any day of the week.
CF: Where did the style inspiration for this particular outfit come from?
BJ: For the past five years or so, I have been rocking shorter hair with a faux-hawk. I decided at the beginning of the semester it was time for a change. So, I wondered…how would it look to rock a comb over and bring back a more regal style? Sure, why not. Having recently watched The Avengers, I felt inspired by Chris Evans and the up-do he sported. When I thought about how to put together my outfit, I felt inspired by Dead Poets Society, an epic movie that captures my New England style and my current taste for past times. And I would be remiss not to mention the countless models in my J.Crew catalogues and GQ magazines.
CF: If you could live and dress in any decade besides the current, which would you choose? Why?
BJ: This one is tough, because I prefer a hybrid approach, but I think that I would live in the 50s with my man, Donald Draper. If I could strut my style on Madison Ave., rock a fresh suit daily to work with a flashy comb over, I think I would be a pretty happy boy.
CF: Describe your perfect fall outfit.
BJ: I'm not one to admit that winter is on the horizon, so I steer away from whipping out the boots for fall and keep rockin’ some Sperry kicks. I'll throw on a pair of argyle socks with some dark wash jeans topped with a tucked in oxford, half-zip pullover wool sweater, and a tie to go with the socks. Oh, and don't forget the comb over with some Ray-Bans to show that sun who's boss.
