Whether it was handed down to him or purchased online, Joel dresses for look and comfort.
Josh Navarro: How would you describe your style?
Joel Ulmer: I like to keep it simple, not too many colors, not too little color. I aim for an urban, domesticated type of look.
JN: What are your favorite shops around the city and online?
JU: I have tons of favorite places to shop. I don’t discriminate. If I see something that’s looks cool, I’ll get it. Usually, I am combining different brands together for an outfit. But the front runners are thrift stores, H&M, Forever 21, Jack Threads, and eBay.
JN: What brands are you wearing in these photos?
JU: My glasses are an unknown brand that was bought on eBay. My jacket is originally from Forever 21, my shirt is Kenneth Cole, and my tie was given to me by my dad. There’s no label on it so I’m not sure what brand it is, but I do know that it’s definitely from the late ’80s. My belt is Rugby, shoes are Cole Hann, and my pants are Levi’s.
