HubThreads: Celebrating Boston Street Style
Critics say this city has no style. We’re here to prove them wrong. Welcome to HubThreads, where we chat with the most stylish people we find out and about in Boston. Think you or someone you know has the best street style? Let us know.
Do you have any style icons? I gotta go with classic David Beckham. He keeps it simple, but he always kills it. Also, Ronnie Fieg, the owner of Kith. Of course you got the Kanyes, the Pharrells, but I would say that you can never go wrong with Beckham.
How would you describe your own style? All over the place. I’m from San Diego, I went to school in Charlotte, I went to grad school in New York, my family is from Nigeria, and I have good friends in London, so I try to pull from everywhere. My girlfriend and I have a saying, “COE,” which stands for Comfort Over Everything. So regardless of whatever it is, it’s got to be comfortable.
How long have you been in Boston? A year and some change, but I’m on my way out, I’m moving to Chicago next Friday.
What about the girlfriend? She’s already there.
What will you be doing there? I work in health care consulting. I’m an analyst, so I’m going to work for a big health insurance company and do some business work and some consulting work.
