"Laidback, on chill mode. Not too flashy, but eye-catching," says Marvell Wesley of his style, inspired by Jay-Z, Common, and "the old" Kanye West—"Through-the-fire Kanye West," he clarifies. "I try to be noticeable when I dress—different but always comfortable."

Since he works out "every day, all day," athletic wear is a staple in his wardrobe; still, Wesley puts a lot of attention into detail, such as matching his green Nspired T-shirt with the Lacoste alligator logo on his windbreaker.

He also makes sure his son, Logan, looks as sharp as he does: "I try to dress him the same way I do, because I know he looks up to me," says the 33-year-old truck driver. Even though Wesley needs to wear a uniform for his job, he always makes sure it is "crisp, nice, and neat": “You should always dress the part, because you never know what will happen."
