Clothing details: Shoes, gift; pants, $10, Gap; vest, gift; shirt, $15, Arizona Trading Co.; tie gift from my brother.

Name: Zachary Schmit

Age: 23

Relationship status: Single

Hometown: Lawrence

Occupation: Bakery clerk at Dillons

Dream job: I guess I would like to work on wind turbines throughout the country. I’m working towards an electrical engineering degree.

What were you doing when scouted? I was heading to the Taproom.

Describe your style: This is basically the nicest clothing that I have. I read somewhere on the Internet that as a man I should dress everyday as though I were going to meet the love of my life. So I figure I take that advice at least one night and see what happens.

Fashion trends you love: I gotta say I do like paisley. I also kind of take from my brother as far as that goes. He has his own style: He likes cowboy boots but I’m more into dressy shoes. I also like things to be fitted and I definitely spent some time finding these. I don’t have the money to be throwing for all kinds of outfits like this but I do have this.

Fashion trends you hate: Large-rimmed glasses. I guess the whole hipster kind of deal. I wouldn’t want to classify anyone as a hipster because it’s stupid to call anyone that. It’s too broad of a word. It’s because this town has been very stereotyped with the “hipster style.” It’s like that’s the lifestyle of seeking originality but they’re being unoriginal by all dressing the same.

Fashion influences: Mostly my brother. I follow a lot in his footsteps but he def. has his own taste. Mine has its own nuances, I suppose.

What would you like to see more of in Lawrence? More well-dressed people. I like that to be a commonplace thing that I might be a little bit more motivated to enhance my own wardrobe.

Less of? I guess bright, non-matching neon colors.

Tattoos or piercings: None

Whom do people say you look like? I haven’t really been told that I look like anybody other than the fact that people mistake me as being someone that they know.

What type of music do you unwind to? Electronic jazz fusion like Galactic and Gramatik

Tell us a secret: I’m afraid of water because when I was 6 years old, I jumped off the dock at Lone Star Lake and was saved by a man with the largest beard I’ve ever seen.
