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.


Are you a student or are you working? Both. I’m a student and I’m working right now.

Where do you go to school? I go to Northeastern.

Are you doing the co-op program? Yes.

Where are you working? I’m a software engineer, so I work as a mobile developer at Runkeeper.

Do you have any style icons? I don’t know. I don’t think so. I go by whatever trend I’m interested in, but not necessarily a person per se.

How would you describe your style? Quick and chic. I try to wear something that’s comfortable to bike around in, but also something I can go to a gallery in.

You nailed it.  Thanks. This is probably my favorite jacket.

Where are you from originally? Iran.

I thought I detected a little accent. Do you know the artists? They are also Iranian, and they also went to Northeastern. The Iranian community in Northeastern is pretty small.

Did you come here for school? I used to live in the Czech Republic, in Prague, and then I came here for school.

Do you think you’ll go back to Prague? I love it there, but I don’t think I’ll go back. I really like Boston.

I’ve always wanted to go to Prague. It’s absolutely beautiful, I would highly recommend visiting, but living in Europe is different than living in the US. And right now, I really like it here.
