Our Fav Green Guy
Jonathan Merritt is the author of the thought provoking book Green Like God and our first street style subject!  He combines his great sense of style with his passion for God and ties it together in his strong belief for "unlocking the divine plan for our planet" which all together equals our favorite green guy! Let us reassure you, he is the real deal.  We met him for coffee back in January and he brought his own cup for them to fill to avoid the dreaded styrofoam cup.  He definitely practices what he preaches!  It was a great morning of coffee and conversation which gave us the chance to ask him some questions on his style choices (after all we are a fashion blog).  After reading his book, we can see that he is true to his word.  The book will take you on  a journey which ends with you reinventing your convenience for conviction!  We love a guy that not only knows how to dress but understands that its not all about labels (hence our issue with Ed Hardy attire!).  Great heart, great book, great guy!

What are you wearing today?
"My favorite jacket which is by For You.  I like it because it is affordable at only $60 but it is still well made.  I got it at an awesome store, Little Bohemia in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Where is your favorite place to shop?
"Nordstrom Rack.  The clearance section is the best because you can find gems."

What is important to you when you are looking for clothes?
"Durability.  A lot of people don't know that cheap is not better.  I still have a pair of Seven's from high school that fit great!  Certain items of clothing are investments.  I try to get classic, durable clothes that will last a lifetime.  I would rather buy an expensive pair of jeans that last forever rather than a cheap pair that I will have to buy 5 times over.  Now in the 21st century, people design things to break so you have to continue to buy it over and over.  It is nice that there are designers still out there that make quality, durable pieces."
