We love to bump into guys with their own sense of style and those that embody their own set of fashion rules. So in light of all the men that find their style noteworthy, meet this weeks Well Dressed Wednesday's spotlight: Blogger, Terry McFly
1. What's the one style (or era) that took you from geek to cool? Retro is the style that made me who I am. I love the 80s and 90s. Wearing things I loved as a kid helps me stay true to myself. It's sort of like becoming the person I always dreamed of becoming.
2. How many pairs of shoes do you own? I lost count after I got into the hundreds. There's about 60 pairs of shoes next to my bed, about 20 pair under the bed, another 20 in my basement... and a bunch of shoes piled up in a closet.
3. How would you describe your style? My style is mood based, it just all depends on how I'm feeling that day. One minute I'll feel like a skater and the next minute I could feel like a business professional or a band member.
4. Who is your style inspiration? A lot of my style inspiration comes from classic movies. I may see something like a dope pair of shades on Ferris Bueller or I may like the tailoring of a jacket in a sci-fi film.
5. What's unique about your style? What makes my style unique is that it is an extension of my unique personality. I don't follow trends, I usually wear what I like and only what looks good to me.
6. Name one style you wish would disappear? I hate toe thong flip-flops with a passion, it's just one of the weirdest and ugliest things a guy could ever choose to wear.
7. Name one item you simply cannot live without. A cap or hat. When it comes to hats, I'm like the kid on Charlie Brown that never left home without his blanket. My hats just make me feel like I can accomplish anything.
8. What is your 'getting dressed' routine? When I'm getting dressed I usually check to see what I have that was recently purchased and if I have nothing new I look to see what clothing has not been photographed yet. Being in the entertainment industry usually means that alot of cameras will be present so I often have to make sure that I'm fresh at all times and that I'm wearing something that hasn't been heavily photographed.
9. Name, age, occupation, website. My name is Terrence, I'm 27, I'm a blogger/writer... my website is www.TerryMcfly.com "Inside The Mind of The Fashionably Random"
10. Your personal style quote or a quote you live by.My personal style qoute is "Become the person you dreamed of becoming as a kid"
11. Snapbacks or fitted? Snapbacks all the time, I boxed up over 100 fitteds and replaced them with over 100 snapbacks, I'm a fan of all things retro so it's cool to see the classic snap revived so heavily
12. Where did the name 'McFly' originate from? The name McFly originated during my college years. People would always see me wearing the latest kicks and they gave me the nickname Fly guy or Mr.Fresh so one day I called myself Terry McFly as a joke and it's been with me since then. People said they liked the name and it seemed very fitting for me as a person
13. Favorite brand of shoe? Why? Supra Footwear is my favorite brand. It's been my favorite shoe because I love hightops and I also love skateboarding. The Supra skytop II & Society are my favorite models in the collection. The designs of these shoes just seem to connect with me and what I love when it comes to design.
14 Least favorite shoe? Why? Toms, I tried on a pair and they didnt look right on me at all. The bottoms feel like cardboard to me. People always rave about how comfortable they are but as a man that wears high quality footwear all the time, these are definitely not comfortable to me. They look fine on women though, I gave a pair as a gift.
15 When did you fall in love with tennis shoes and what shoe? I was in the 5th grade when the love of shoes came into effect. My first love was the Carolina blue/White Air Jordan 11's. She was a beautiful shoe indeed. I showed her love on the playground by never taking them off. It was also a privilege to have jordans back then because that was at a time when people was getting robbed for them and there wasn't an actual Jordan brand like now.
