natonya: Describe your go-to look.

Chris Lane: I like outfits where the garments look fairly basic by themselves, but look great when put together. A plain gray tee, jeans, black leather bomber jacket and a pair of Vans Sk8-Hi has become a go-to look of mine.

natonya: Can’t walk out the door without wearing?

Chris Lane: My Shinola watch. I feel like a good simple watch can add so much character to an outfit. Plus, it keeps me on time.

natonya: What advice do you give someone trying to discover his or her style?

Chris Lane: Don’t feel like you have to conform to a specific look or trend. Wear what makes you feel the most confident and comfortable. Your style will fall into place from there.

natonya: What changes would you like to see in the fashion industry?

Chris Lane: Despite the digital shift stores are making, I’d love to see more brick and mortar menswear shops. There’s just nothing like being able to feel and try on what you’re about to buy.
