Peeps on The Street: Calvin on 5th Avenue, Brooklyn

Calvin is an Automotive Technician and lives in Queens.  His personality is even more interesting than his sense of style, if you can imagine that. 

Where did you get what you are wearing today? 
Jeans: Thrifted, then they ripped even more. It's hard to tell from the photo, but the jeans are embellished with rare patches which were donated by friends.
Shirt: Hot Topic, a store Calvin doesn't like much because its too mass market for him. However, he happens to love Guns 'n Roses, so he made an exception in this particular case.
Hat: Obtained from work, from a MAC distributor.
Bracelet: handmade gift from his girlfriend, and he loves it.

What are your favorite stores?
Calvin likes thrift stores, "hole in the wall" shops, and the stores on St. Marks in the east village. He often gets free stuff from Barney's, because his mother works there, so that's a pretty sweet hook up.

Are there any particular items you are shopping for right now?
Calvin says he is getting into really bright colors right now. He also explains that he had come out to Beacon's Closet searching for "a jumpsuit like a toddler would wear", which he needs because he plans to be a toddler for Halloween. 

Can you describe your personal style?
I would not have known where to begin, but luckily he had some ideas: Calvin goes for a Late Hippy / Metal Look. He says he loves flared pants "the bigger the better", and band T-Shirts. Psychedelic Metal, perhaps?
