How does Parisian style differ from other cities? Fashion is a part of every Parisian's life. Even old people dress to impress.

Favorite thing about living in Paris? I live in NYC, but if I did live in Paris my favorite part would be the air-conditioning.

What do you think makes Paris the fashion capital of Europe? Hasn't it been so since the 16th century? I don't think much has changed since then.

Biggest misconception about Paris? Nobody speaks English.

What's one thing you'd change about Paris? Dinner taking three hours to complete should be a choice, not just the way it is.

Favorite hangout? Any café with their outdoor seating turned to face the catwalk...I mean, sidewalk.

Best spot to pick up girls? See previous question's answer: La Perle, or the (capsule) show.

Best place to buy sneakers? Starcow, but I tend to wear shoes.

What do you see as the next big trend? I get paid for that sort of information. My assistant will set up a meeting if you'd like to learn more about my menu of services.

Vote on whether today's subject is "Stylin" or "Wildin" below...

What's the item currently in your closet you most regret buying? I don't buy clothes.

Favorite city? NYC.

Dream job? I love what I do, but if I didn't do this, I'd probably move home to Maine and build stuff with my brother. Which would probably annoy him because as he's explained, fashion's made me soft. So I guess I'll just stick with what I've got.

Fast-food spot? Right now it's a Bahn Mi (Vietnamese sandwich) joint near my house.

What city has the best style? Paris to me does as a city, but I think Denmark has the best overall style as a country.

What person has wack style? Close your eyes, spin around, OK...now point! Chances are, most people in that direction.

What trend do you want to see die? Too many to list. Can guys just dress like guys? Please?

I never leave the house without my... wallet, keys, and cellphone. I can survive with those bare essentials.

Favorite tech gadget? The abacus.

What do chicks dig about your style? Chicks only like me for my money.

Most common statement people make about your style? I don't know. Are people supposed to comment on my style? I don't hang out with those people.
