It’s strange, but over  my three years at USF I have never seen Kyle before.  How did such a stylish individual go unnoticed?  I am unsure.  I saw Kyle walking by Cowell on his way to class Tuesday afternoon wearing: a sturdy coat he purchased in Buenos Aires, where he studied abroad; a simple grey long sleeve shirt with a button, from American Apparel; a brown leather belt with a golden belt buckle, from Argentina; WeSC jeans, he purchased at American Rag; and brown lace up shoes, by Paul Smith.

Kyle accessorized with a meteorite necklace from Wasteland, foldable Ray Ban sunglasses that he took from his 18-year-old brother Sam, and a vintage light brown leather bag from Decades of Fashion on Haight.

“I feel like a (expletive) vain person right now.” Kyle said as Sky Madden snapped away, taking photos of him at every angle.  Kyle was carrying an old coffee cup filled with trash, which he felt did not add to the outfit and wanted to discard.

As someone who used to work at Held Over, Kyle said he enjoys shopping there for the discount as well as other vintage clothing stores.  The first thing he thinks about in the morning is French toast, which he makes using two eggs, sourdough bread and a splash of vanilla extract.
