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 live in Boston? I live in Arlington, but we have a restaurant in Boston, the Pad Thai Café.

I love that place! We’re going to re-open this weekend. We closed the old one and opened a new one just down the street.

How long have you been in Boston? Not too long, just 24 years.

How old is your daughter? She’s 8 months.

Do you have any other children? This is the only one, we waited for a long time.

Did you style her hair? Her mom did her hair, it keeps it out of her face. She’s a very friendly kid!

She had such a big smile on her face before! Now she’s like, “I’m a model, so I can’t be bothered.” I love her socks. So, when can I expect to see my daughter in the magazine?
