Fashion: Desmond Kinlaw
“Style is confidence; it’s inside of you, and once you find yours, it can last forever.”
Occupation: Service worker at Santee Cooper
What I like: Simple essentials that fit well—blazers, Oxford shirts, khaki chinos, dark blue denim, and brown leather shoes
What I dislike: Baggy clothes. They make you look six inches shorter and 40 pounds heavier.
My style: A combination of Southern prep and rugged prep
Signature item: My custom-made, rosary-engraved wedding band. I wanted it to be special and personal, after all I’m going to wear it for the rest of my life.
Trend I will never follow: Big knotted “muscle” ties—they’re just plain wrong.
