Name: Samuel Powell

‘Hood: Germantown


Day Job: Manager at Parc

Where We Found Him: On his way to fill in the host team about the amount of reservations for outside seating during a busy Sunday brunch.

What He’s Wearing: Zara sports coat and tie; Calvin Klein shirt; J.Crew slim-fit pants; Kenneth Cole belt; Armani watch; railroad nail bracelet from Giles & Brother; Dansko work shoes.

Where He Shops: "When I'm looking for a good pair of shoes, I hit Sansom Street between 16th and 15th, locally owned stores from guys who know footwear."

My Beard: "It's at three months and I shape it myself. Ungarische Bartwichse by Marke & Golddachs is the beard wax I use. [Editor's Note: Salvador Dali also used it!] I go to a barber shop in Roxborough to do my hair. It's called The Men's Club. They are a couple of younger guys who can cut hair in a really classic way. I use Crew products to style my hair."

Sound Bite: "If you like what you’re wearing, you'll wear it better than anyone else. The reason I stay true to Philly is because of the diversity everyone brings to the table. People leave Philly to find themselves, but they come back to be themselves."
