Style Scout: Patrick Kelly


Clothing details: Shoes, Vans Outlet, two years ago; jeans, Banana Republic outlet store in Virginia, one year ago; shirt, Banana Republic, five years ago; hat, Canada, five years ago; I have no idea how much most of this stuff costs now.

Name: Patrick Kelly

Age: 42

Relationship status: Married

Hometown: Long Beach, Calif.

Time in Lawrence: 24 years

Occupation: Educator

Dream job: I’m doing my dream job!

What were you doing when scouted: Getting ready for “Foundation Follies” variety show, which is a fundraiser held annually at Liberty Hall that raises money for the support of students, staff and programs of the Lawrence school district.

Describe your style: Middle-aged skater!

Fashion trends you love: I love Vans tennis shoes and West Coast surf and skater designs.

Fashion trends you hate: I don’t like pajamas as everyday wear.

Fashion influences: Nowhere! I go to a store and buy what I like.

What would you like to see more of in Lawrence: More collaboration, communication and civility.

Less of? Personal attacks or closed-mindedness.

Tattoos or piercings: No

Who do people say you look like? I hope they say I look like Jason Statham, but I hear Louis C.K., which is not a good thing.

What type of music do you unwind to: I’m an ex-music teacher so I like it all, from jazz to classical. But for unwinding, I like surf punk and ’80s ska as well as bands like Fall Out Boy and Green Day.

Tell us a secret… I can’t give away secrets. I have maximum loyalty.
