Hunter Thompson

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

Hunter is a ladies’ man when it comes to his mom, a Southern gentleman when it comes to class, a touch of Brooklyn when it comes to his love of black and a movie star when it comes to distinguished good looks, in the vein of Donald Sutherland. There isn’t anything in his wardrobe that doesn’t look expensive, yet nothing is. For me, one of his standout pieces is a pair of women’s plus-size thrift store pants with two panels that he imagines were part of an “extremely tacky evening outfit, ill-fitting and just ugly.” If he had told me they were Yohji, I wouldn’t have batted an eye – they are as chic as any of the edgiest designers or own (sigh) Margiela pants with a built-in skirt. A lot of the time, I feel sure that spending more is worth it, especially on certain investment-type pieces, but Hunter has an extraordinary knack for proving me wrong. When he told me that his black leather jacket was $20, I cringed at how much I spent on mine. Of course, the way that Hunter puts it all together puts it over-the-top, like mixing his biker jacket with a “Woolrich-esque” red and black checked blanket worn as a scarf when running to the local bodega. It’s all in the details, and any scarf less chunky and original wouldn’t have the same effect. Above it all and symptomatic of a true artist is his profound sensitivity. You can see it all over his room – an impeccable taste for history, science, fashion, and art, and in his answer to our question as to who is his favorite person on the site. His answer: “Terry T. His passion for the feelings of others wowed me more so than any outfit he could have put on. With how genuine he was, he honestly could have been in sweatpants, and I would have been sold.”

If you like Hunter, you might also enjoy Sonny Groo, Alex Chapman, or James Gillespie.

    Hunter’s confident, yet extremely modest approach to himself as a person, his style and his shaping influences is that of someone beyond his years. I tip my hat to you sir…

    hunter has always had impeccable style. always. if you get the chance to go shopping with him, GO! when you are tired of looking through racks and racks of things in the discount stores, he keeps going… and always finds the perfect thing for you… that fits your style, even if it is not the same as his.

    I can not describe with words how impressive his style is. So cool.

  • SamBamThankYouMaam

    he is brilliant. i love how at ease he looks in his clothes and that biker jacket is perfect, as is the short sleeved white shirt.

    some little part of me wants him to start singing billie holiday cadillac commercials like david sedaris!
