Style is about the individual. Your outward appearance represents, in some capacity, who you are on in the inside – your personality, individuality, etc.
With that said, we’re always looking for new guests to feature and share their personal sense of style. When I heard that Townsend’s friend Chuck, a literary buff and style enthusiast, often combines his two passions into literary-inspired looks, we had to make it happen.
“I’m Chuck Martell. I’m the product presentation and marketing manager for the Rugby flagship store on University Place in NYC, as well as a freelance stylist, creative consultant and all around nerd. I live with two good friends in Harlem and am originally from right outside of Boston. I spend my time reading, fantasizing about clothes, and hanging out with my incredible (and fantastically talented) group of friends. Also, I swear I’m not a pretentious asshole.”
1. John Steinbeck / The American Dustbowl
“John Steinbeck was my first ‘grown-up’ author. I was assigned The Red Pony for summer reading one year in elementary school, and I really took to his writing.
I was raised listening to my grandmother’s stories of growing up in Boston during the depression and quickly became fascinated by Steinbeck’s stories of the same period from California to the midwest.”
