   A: “My fashion is basic. Just like a suburban dad.”

   Q: Do you dress like other guys your age?

   Q: Where are your favorite places to shop?

   Q: Are there any specific brands you like to wear?

   Q: How would you describe your fashion sense as a child?

   A: “As a child, I was dressed by my mom. She’d dress me in what she thought looked good.”

   Q: How would you describe your fashion sense as a teen?

   A: “When I finally started to care about what I looked like as a teenager, I’d shop the way I wanted. It was nice because I was the youngest child and my mother would give me her credit card. I’d go to the mall to all the trendy stores at the mall. I did that through high school and my first two years of college. Somewhere along my Junior year of college was when I started not to care about how I looked. I wore blue jeans and a t-shirt.”

   Q: Do you envy other grown men who dress nice?

   A: “It looks like a lot of work. I think I’m good the way I am.”

   Q: Do you think your fashion has changed after marriage?

   A: “I definitely care less and less. My wife doesn’t care about how I dress, so I’m good with whatever.”

   Q: Do your children help you dress?

   A: “They try to. They’ll like to point out when I’m doing something embarrassing.”
