Smooth Operator 

A quick look at Atlanta's fashion sense

Groomed beard: Going bald at an early age, an older woman explained to Silver that bald is better than combed-over. He listened, opting to gracefully shave it off. Instead, Silver's facial hair gets all the love, with regular trips to the barber and washes with baby shampoo.

Necklace: A fan of positive energy, this rose quartz ornament helps keep Silver optimistic regardless of the stress thrown at him managing busy Commune. Purchased at Underground Atlanta, he tries to wear it day-to-day to deal with life's stress.

Shirt: A child of the '70s, Silver keeps the spirit of the decade alive with a funky patterned shirt purchased at Stefan's for about $35. Drawn to the prints of the late '60s and early '70s, he notes that more people had class back then: "Today, people get fashion and fads confused with flavor."

Pants: Silver is also drawn to fabrics, as evidenced by these summer-weight wool-blend slacks. Part of a Brooks Brothers suit bought at the Thrift House for nearly $7, he describes the subtly polished shade as a calm, collected black, rather than a stark, lifeless version of the color.

Boots: Dirty Looks found a kindred spirit in Silver, who shares our irritation of incorrectly worn gentlemen's footwear. Ordinarily turned off by square toes, he was drawn to this pair of Durangos because they were more rounded than most. Double-stitched zippers on the sides allow them to be worn casually or dressy.
