Alexander shows off the last of this year's Spring style.
I found Alexander combing the racks at the infamous clothing shop Bobby From Boston and liked the mix of layers he used to protect himself from the Spring rain and cold. Alexander's work as a fashion designer provides him with ample inspiration. He leans toward androgynous lines and describes his style "as if Commes de Garcons did '90s grunge." Here, he wears a Pleasure Principle shirt with attached scarf collar, a Theory cardigan, vintage jacket, Prada watch, American Apparel riding leggings and Frye harness boots.

Local cook whips up a stylish off-the-clock look.
When not donning his 'chef whites' as a cook at Le'Espalier, Nate is on a search for vintage American workwear to add to his collection. I spotted him outside Bobby from Boston doing just that. He says he looks to the street style blog giant The Sartorialist to be inspired as well as to the blog YouHaveBrokenTheInternet. Here, Nate pairs a Walz hat, Gant Rugger shirt, vintage belt, A.P.C. jeans, Fossil watch, vintage Coach shoulder bag and L.L. Bean Signature boots.

Workwear made fashionable.
California transplant Matthew F. has become a South End staple, spending a majority of his time working at famed vintage clothing mecca Bobby From Boston. There, he feeds his desire for durable threads and assorted workwear. Matthew collects clothing that will wear and keep well, the kind of clothes you could "easily jump trains in." He gets a majority of his style inspiration from musicians Woody Guthrie and Jimmy Rogers. Matthew's vintage Wrangler jeans and Dubblewear shirt and belt are all from Bobby From Boston, and his Redwing boots were a hand-me-down.
