Quintessential 'Q' 

A quick look at Atlanta's fashion sense

Disclaimer: While searching for a style-savvy MJQ-going male, Dirty Looks' roommate swooned over this longhaired hottie. Dirty Looks would like to preface this installment by pointing out that we neither listen to the Hiss nor knew what the members looked like -- until now.

Hat: One of the reasons Dirty Looks thought Johnny K. was a good option was this foppish piece. Just this side of ragamuffin, it's a soft, less-trendy alternative to the tired Kangols spotted on a few other men. Purchased at a thrift store in Delaware for $2, its worn bill draws all attention to Johnny's eyes.

Tattoos: Bright and eye-catching, his tattoos are just on the edge of Tommy Lee-style rock star-ish. Preventing them from going there, however, is that they represent his life experiences, like an apartment that burned down and his grandmother passing away. Suddenly they make him look sweet and cuddly, huh?

T-shirt: Just because Johnny gets to travel all around the world to play music doesn't mean that this dude is a snob. As if agreeing to appear in this column doesn't prove it, then certainly this shirt should. It cost him nothing. Seriously, his friend in Gainesville, Fla., made it for him.

Jeans: Another thrift store purchase, these Levi's claimed only $5 of his hard-earned cash. The draw? "They fit," he explained.

Shoes: A good pair of shoes will get a man everywhere, including this column. Johnny got lucky with these, which were purchased for him on Regents Street in London. A nice, narrow toe, he suspects the independent-label items cost a little over $300.
