Deuce is a graduate from the University at Buffalo with a degree in Health and Human Services, and
he currently works for one of the premier health care agencies in Western, NY. Similar to our brother Ernest,
he is also on the fast track to success in terms of moving on up within the company especially after earning a promotion a few months ago.
If it were not for the red plaid shirt, this outfit would have been very neutral and subtle, but by adding the plaid it provided a pop of color and a much needed layer.
“I love wearing layers this time of the year, it always adds some flavor to my outfits. I also like to incorporate oversized T-shirts as well, I tend to wear them as often as I can.”

When Deuce put together this linen trench coat and waxed denim combination it really helped provide the direction for his feature. Linen is usually one of those fabrics that we reserve for the warmer months, but by adding a comfortable hoodie underneath you’re ready for any sudden change in the temperature. Which is something very common for this time of the year.
Like I mentioned here, linen is one my favorite fabrics because it keeps you cool and I love the way the wrinkles form after just a couple of wears. There is really no way to avoid the wrinkles so you might as well just embrace it.

Now I have to admit, I never considered wearing a poncho before shooting this feature. However, after seeing it done here, I wouldn’t mind incorporating one into my wardrobe. That is one thing I have to say that I admire about most of my friends, especially Deuce, he is never afraid to take some risks. Deuce is definitely a soft-spoken gentleman, but when it comes to his fashion sense, he usually let’s his style do the talking.
“I don’t believe in spending hundreds of dollars to make an outfit look good. In fact, a lot of people are surprised when they find out I rarely spend more than $30-$70 on one particular item. I like to call it balling on a budget, because to be honest I rather spend my money on more important things.”
Like I always say, money cant buy style, and Deuce definitely helped prove that with this feature.

As always, thanks for reading and special thanks to Deuce for participating.
