What He’s Wearing: A denim vest from a vintage store on Bedford Avenue in Brooklyn; a t-shirt from Bodega in Boston; Osiris shoes from CCS.

Sound Bite: "My denim vest is my pride and joy. I  found it with most of the patches still attached. The back patch is from a t-shirt that shrunk too much in the wash. But I love the image so much I had to hold onto it in some way. The decal sat on a shelf for a few years before I made the connection that it needs to live on the vest.I've always felt a deeper connection to felines than human beings—a spirit animal. And I can switch the vest with sweatshirts and other jackets, too. Versatile and flexible, cat style.
