Monday night I headed down to South Broadway in pursuit of an interesting subject to cover for “Secondhand Sartorialism.” South Broadway is a great area to investigate when you are seeking style inspiration. Hip boutiques, thrift stores and interesting bars abound, filled with people who possess intriguing and inspiring taste in clothes. Eurotrash hipsters, paint speckled artists, starving poets and working musicians peacefully coexist, influencing each others stylistic choices in ways that are both subtle and overt. If you want to see living, breathing examples of how to put your outfits together in new, creative ways, you can learn a lot by people watching on the streets of Denver. I’ve known since I started writing this blog that I also wanted to find guys to interview about their vintage-inspired style, so I was thrilled to run into my old friend Ben Kronberg and elated when he agreed to be my first male interviewee. Ben, a stand-up comedian who has a loyal fan base here in Denver and nationwide, possesses an eye for fashion that is as sharp as his wit, and incorporates vintage pieces into his wardrobe in ways that make it clear that while some may argue that it is harder for men to find great pieces secondhand, it certainly is possible.
