Fashion: What are you wearing, CJ Brazelton?
As a full-time artist and a founding member of the MINT Art Collective, CJ Brazelton takes his work home with him — normally on his shoes and clothing. The 24-year-old takes inspiration for both his artwork and wardrobe from the industrial spaces he works in, as well as the urban and punk scene, and Dennis Rodman.
Hat: Stussy. “I love snap-back hats because you can wear them with anything.”
Hair: “Right now I’m letting my hair do whatever it wants to do. I used to look up to Dennis Rodman for his flamboyance, so the [hair dye] is almost an homage to him.”
Jacket: Thrifted. “I love oversized shirts or jackets paired with fitted clothing. It’s how I tie in the urban style with the rest [of my look].”
Tank Top: Thrifted. “Tank tops are my summer go-to.”
Pants: Thrifted. “I always peg my pants to show off my shoes and socks. I vibe with East Coast style, so I like to wear lots of neutral colors and fitted cuts. I guess I grew out of wearing baggy pants.”
Shoes: Ben Sherman. “The wing-tip design lets me dress these shoes up or down. I don’t do sneakers.”
