Jeans I’ve reached a point in my life where I like things that are tried and true. So when it comes to jeans, I really go to the source: Levi’s 511s. I’m not really big on rips, unless you’ve earned them.
Shirt Being a tall, lanky man, I have to be pretty specific. My adult life has been spent finding things that look good on my frame. Definitely, arm length can be an issue for me. There’s a company that’s new to me that has a really good mixture of T-shirts and button-up shirts. It’s called Tankfarm & Company. They have details and different sorts of cuts, like seams that run on the shirts, that are kind of cool. If not that, then I like Scotch & Soda.
Jacket For the last three years, I’ve been pretty much wearing this Levi’s jean jacket that my wife now despises. But recently, an acquaintance of mine was wearing this great workman’s chore coat. I cold-texted her, “Hey that jacket you were wearing, where did you get it, I want one.” It was a Pointer Brand duck-brown one she was wearing. Now I’ve got a couple different colors. They’re throwbacks.
Shoes My default pair of shoes is from this company I found out of Chicago called Oak Street Bootmakers. The one I have is basically a black leather trench boot. Sometime in my 30s, I realized I needed different boots for different scenarios. I have a Red Wing boot for running around. These Oak Streets are my “fancy” boot, but I also don’t care if they get scuffed up.
Generally, I like brands that have a story. I was never all that into high fashion. I always thought of fashion as kind of silly and sometimes pointless. But then I saw Tim Gunn on the “Daily Show” one day, and that kind of blew my mind. He said fashion is like a time capsule: It’s of a place and of a time and shows that place in the world at that moment. I’ve never had anyone explain it to me so simply. That made me think of what fashion could mean from an artistic standpoint.
Accessory I’ve spent the last five years trying to shed myself of accessories. The one accessory I do love — I only use it when I wear a tie, which isn’t that often — is a small silver tie clip I stole from the “Mad Men” costume department. It’s ironic because when I was on the show, I didn’t wear a tie. I played a priest. This was the second season of “Mad Men,” and it was before it really became a cultural phenomenon. Now they sell them everywhere, but at the time, you could only find them at vintage stores.
