preOAKupied: Favorite piece in Oak right now would have to be the slouch romper in black. I love the fleece-lining and the zipper that falls just above the knees. Not only would it look good with any given leather jacket, it also provides warmth in a cold New York winter while keeping a naturally comfortable cool. Paired with the Oak grey leather cap it reminds me of the street conscious, greasy haired, grungy skaters in Lords of Dogtown.

The wool version of the Drape Front Parka gets me o____o. Not only does the offset zipper create a sense of delusion, but the cut of the jacket with its swoop hood constructs a look of devastation for anyone who does not already own this piece. To top it off, the asymmetrical hem gives to the balance of the jacket as a whole, and falls on the body like the crisp creases of a paper crane. A classic.

Brooklyn or Manhattan: Broaklyn.

What keeps you busy?: Senior at NYU studying production and advertising. Particularly fascinated with cinematography theory and post-production editing of film. Right now, working on a short 3-4 minute stop motion film entertaining the notion of different movements in a given space throughout the outskirts of a cement city.

Wood or Lambskin?: Wood

What do you collect?: Ashtrays, wooden pencils, fine-tip markers.

What piece in your wardrobe would you never give up?: Andy + Dee waffle cone jacket

Nature or Nurture?: Nature

What makes you a believer?: The stranger in the hallway who holds the door open for you.
