“I kind of just wear whatever I think looks cool; I guess it fits in that ‘indie’ genre …Initially, definitely my brother Max [was an inspiration]. I always grew up looking up to his style and trying to copy it, and then I kind of just did my own thing. Also skateboarders are another inspiration because I skate, and I see all these pro skaters and I try to dress like them…I get a lot of stuff from my grandpa, actually, just him getting rid of stuff. But at least a few times a month, I go to Goodwill or Salvation Army … Sometimes I will just wear sweatpants and a sweatshirt, but I still want to make it look cool …  [My clothes] makes me stand out I guess. And I don’t really like being the center of attention, but I definitely think — and this sounds cliche — but I don’t, like, fit in with everyone else. I feel like the clothes you wear show that … I feel like a lot of people are afraid to dress cool, but nobody really cares about what other people are wearing. People aren’t going to be like ‘can’t hangout with that kid now’ or something like that. That’s how people always look at it.”
