Bradley Smith, Closets
Bradley Smith

Bradley shops in the plus size section of thrifts shops and he prefers to thrift near retirement homes. When we went to film him he was staying with a friend and his clothes were in a pile on the floor. Bradley spun like magic from the mass of the best of "old lady" a display of cheap and chic extraordinaire. From the scarf as spat, to the "gramps" baggy pants pulled up over the knee as jodphur, he is anything but derivative. Bradley comes from Missouri where his peers felt that Abercrombie was the closest thing to originality. In an effort to find authenticity, he has become an archetype for stylish classicism that is completely rare.
