I was hunting with Elizabeth Brown and Bharat Sharma on a Thursday afternoon. The sun was shining, but the fashions were lacking. “Your job is difficult.” Sharma said. Thankfully we ran into Evan Bissonnette who was basking in the sunshine on the benches outside of the cafeteria. The soft-spoken freshman did not have much to say about fashion, but nonetheless possessed an effortless and cool look.
Evan’s black Volcom jeans are from a skateboard shop in Portland, Oregon called Exit Real World. His plaid flannel shirt comes from Buffalo Exchange, and the white t-shirt underneath is from Target, he thinks. Over his flannel he wears a grey knock-off Members Only jacket from Beacon’s Closet in Brooklyn. The Burton hat is a find from Beacon’s Closet as well. His off-white Vans come from a Vans store in LA (the holes come from hours and hours of skateboarding) and the white socks he wears are a Target purchase.
Evan says his clothing reflects function over fashion. When asked if he was into fashion he said, “It’s alright.” His clothes reflect his activities of skateboarding, snowboarding (he is a regular) and concert attending (The X on his hand is from seeing Koalacaust and Ghost Town Refugees at Bottom of the Hill.)
Evan does not like to buy overpriced clothing and said he is not influenced by other people when it comes to fashion. “I don’t notice fashion too much. But I do think flip flops on the bus or subway are gross.”
