Style Strategies: How the Podcast Host Shops
Describe your style in five words or less.
“Oh yeah? That was nice.”
What are you shopping for at the moment?
Outerwear. It’s always outerwear.
Where did the name Blamo! come from?
Ha! It means nothing and makes it easy to mean something else when I need to. I’ve always felt names shouldn’t have too much weight. Imagine if I would’ve named it the Jeremy Kirkland show!? Oof!
How did your earlier career lead to what you’re doing now with podcasting?
I wouldn’t say it was linear, but I’ve been lucky to have met some amazing people who encouraged me to grow away from where I was. Some folks hire people and want to keep them where they are … forever. I’ve been lucky to work with folks who saw something else in me and encouraged me to focus on it. I don’t take it for granted.
How did #seikobois begin?
Ha! #Seikobois was just a way to categorize my somewhat absurd love of Seiko watches. To this day, they continue to be one of the easiest brands to get into, collect and also produce some of the most incredible watches ever. They’re often underrated and the most fun. Everyone has a Seiko story.
Lately, I’ve been drawn to Seikos from the ’70s, and the 6139 ‘Pogue’ is where it’s at. It’s a watch that people will double take and has a rich history (yes, it went to space, and it looks incredible no matter what size your wrist is).
Are there any similarities you look for when buying clothes and watches?
Absolutely! I like things that are easy to understand and are often overlooked. I know that sounds trite, but let me talk to you about a navy sport coat … can it get any better than that?
