Peeps on The Street: Bill on Driggs and N. 9th St

Bill is a musician I met on Driggs in Williamsburg, and immediately wanted to talk to him about his look. He was a little shy, but agreed to answer my questions anyway. 

Where did you get what you are wearing today?
T shirt: This is his friends band, and he got it at their show
Jeans: Second hand
Sneakers: Vans
Bandana: Probably from the dollar store

Is there any particular item you are shopping for right now?
Bill says he isn't shopping much, because he is too broke. If he wasn't, he'd be looking for new jeans and dress shoes.

What are your favorite stores? 
Again, Bill reminds me that he's pretty broke right now. Unfortunately, our culture just doesn't reward musicians with much financial love, but if Bill were to shop, it would be at Buffalo Exchange, Beacon's Closet, or thrift stores.

Can you describe your personal style?
Like many people, Bill struggles with this one for a moment...he says he's kinda punk, so I suggest "Punk Ass Broke" and he agrees to that.
