  • Jason Bell Jr. describes his style as "clean and comfortable, like a dapper grandpa."

"I knew I was bound to get a few pictures in today, so I had to bust a fit," admits Jason Bell Jr., a 19-year-old fashion student and entrepreneur from Bloomington, Indiana. Dressed in a coat handed down by his grandfather, he considers his style "a work in progress": "clean and comfortable, like a dapper grandpa. It's the thin line between old fashion and this generation's style," Bell says.

The apparel merchandising student at Indiana University was in Chicago to direct a photo shoot for Urban Genius, a lifestyle brand he created in high school with friends Drelen Williams and Derreke Johnson. "We were the group of kids that always stood out because of the way we dressed. We had everyone trying to keep up with us," says Bell, who's now making a business out of his precocious sartorial expertise. Find his designs at Urbangenius216.com and on Instagram at @ug216.
