Where are you headed right now? Home, to cook some spaghetti.
Favorite clothing store? Salvation Army, Urban Outfitters. Sugartown, when it was open.
Other stores you frequent? Sunflower, Backwoods.
How would you describe your style? I like stuff that fits. When you're as tall as me, you have to shop for length. Abercrombie doesn't have 38" or 48" waists, and if they do they're like a 30" inseam. So first I find what fits, and then I look for fashion.
Favorite thing for this season? Straight-legged pants. Tapered needs to be done away with.
Least favorite trend right now? Popped collars. Double-popped collars. And triple-popped collars. ("What's a triple-popped collar?") The polo, the long-sleeved shirt and a jacket.
Where do you get your haircut? Sports Clips, right next to the Deli.
Favorite coffee shop in Lawrence? Java Break-But only because they have the Gradey Sex Bomb. Not named after me. It's with an 'e.'
Favorite bar shop or bar in Lawrence? Red Lyon.
Is there anything you'd like to see more of in Lawrence? Better mass transit to Kansas City.
