College Street Style Brody Lewis

Brody Lewis, a freshman at the U takes a bit of Colorado with him whenever he gets dressed. The Greeley native was wearing a retro fleece Patagonia sweater with an eye catching print along with a pair of tan zip-up Pacsun joggers, some rugged, waterproof Sorel boots topped off with a Poler Stuff 5 panel cap.

At the core of Colorado culture is a deeply adventurous lifestyle which is reflected in Lewis’s personal style.

“I would say growing up in Colorado, there’s just this sense that everyone is outdoorsy. They always look like they can just drop everything and go do something, especially climbing.”

Favorite shopping locations include Pac Sun, Urban Outfitters, American Apparel and given the correct location, thrift shops. Lewis points to one in particular located in Fort Collins, Colorado which offers a more curated selection of second-hand active lifestyle apparel.

“I probably have about 40 hats, ranging from your typical snapback to your old school 5 panel hat, to your trucker hat. When deciding which to wear I usually try and match it to whatever outfit I’m wearing. A lot of my hats I found at thrift stores. I even have one that’s a Forrest Gump hat that has a retro fit to it.”

Lewis is also a major fan of the long line tees, a current trend in men’s fashion. Form fitting and added length together are a definite plus for the tall and slim. He also uses a bike as his main mode of transportation around campus and consequently appreciates the new trail joggers being released at the moment.

Boots and winter jackets stand out to Lewis as items which everyone should consider shelling out a little more for, especially when living somewhere like Salt Lake City where winter conditions can be somewhat extreme.

"I spent $300 on a Patagonia down-vest jacket. A nice pair of boots are important too, especially if you’re living in a place like Salt Lake where you get a lot of snow."

Style influences were very easy for Lewis to point out, the biggest by far being his father. When speaking about his community and how many people seem to lead active lifestyles, Lewis pointed to his family as a specific example.

"Same with my family, they’re very active, especially my dad who wears a lot of the same clothes as I do,” he said. “I’m for sure influenced by his style.”
