Prune: What is your go-to look?
Charlie DePew: My answer is interesting because I was never really like this, but my go to look right now is all black. Black jeans, black boots, a black shirt with a dark graphic print on it, and a black leather jacket. This is so weird to say because that was so not me growing up. I think the reason I like it is because it’s the easiest way to look good.
Prune: Yes yes yes. All black is always a way to look good.
Charlie DePew: It’s just easy. Find something that is black and throw it on, you’ll look good. I also like denim jackets with hoodies underneath and long tees.
Prune: Now let’s talk about things we don’t like. What are three fashion trends you wish would stop? Male or female.
Charlie DePew: Oh yes. The first one that I’ve now seen a couple of times is starting to scare me where fashion may go. Male hoodie midriffs.
Prune: Oh yes, you can thank Ezekiel Elliott for that one.
Charlie DePew: It’s horrible. It just needs to stop. I’m not a fan of that, it makes me question what the world is coming to. I don’t like the boxy vintage pants that have become a thing recently either. The break at the ankle makes you look like a box, I’m not a fan.
Prune: What about girls?
Charlie DePew: My friend Caroline is going to read this and hate me for it, but Birkenstocks, I think those are the ugliest shoes ever. It’s just such a hipster thing to do. Caroline is going to kill me, (sorry Caroline) but I think they are horrible and need to be banned.
Prune: Are they comfy I wonder?
Charlie DePew: Oh they must be. They are hipster crocs.
