Joel – Grand Rapids Streetstyle

We spent this weekend with close friends in Grand Rapids, Michigan. We drove out to see Ultraviolet Hippopotamus, one of our favorite up and coming Midwest bands, play on their home turf at the legendary Founder’s Brewery. Many thanks to the guys (and gal) of Poor Boys Relief for letting us crash at their pad, yet again!
So when I saw Joel at Founder’s I could not resist photographing him. I know this is a Chicago streetstyle website, but if you think about it Grand Rapids is a part of the Chi-Pitts megalopolis… that’s urban planning jargon for “extended urban environment.” Jeremy says I could justify anything – I blame it on my year working in the legal industry. Anywho, I have a soft spot in my heart for well put together twenty-something men in cardigans. When I initially spotted Joel at the bar I knew I had to feature him – no matter what city he happens to live in.
