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’m really into Ouija Theodore at the moment, such great style. I’ve always been a fan of the art and fashion that Jean De Castelbajac creates. Bandulu Street Couture is a brand I fully back, I own a few pieces. It’s funny because most people who see me wearing that brand are convinced that I’m covered in paint, when in reality the paint splatters are all hand embroidered. Hundreds of hours are put into each piece. Oh, and Jonah Hill, definitely!

How would you describe your personal style? I’d say it’s a mix between athletic & American heritage, workwear with a splash of Japanese and Supreme street style.

Where do you shop in Boston? I usually thrift, but when I do shop I go to COS, Bobby’s from Boston, MUJI & Patagucci.

Are you from Boston? I’m originally from Cape Cod, MA. I came to Boston to study film at MassArt.

Why did you decide to stay in Boston to do your art? I started to acquire a solid amount of clients and I really found my niche here. And the Boston skate scene is pretty damn special. I’ve been skateboarding for over fifteen years, and it is truly my first passion in life. It’s always been the perfect balance of everything I do, next to playing ping-pong. So anyone reading this with a decent top spin, HMU, we have a table at the office.

Tell me more about your art. I am a freelance video director and visual artist, I produce commercials, Instagram content, and short films for brands. I work with an array of clients all over Boston & NYC. I operate out of a creative agency called Amalgam located on Newbury Street. In my spare time I make Doodills, which I’d like to put on some clothing someday… we’ll see.
