Occupation: District Manager for Abercrombie & Fitch
Describe your style: My style is pretty laid back with classic and preppy elements.
What’s your essential staple piece of clothing/accessory in your wardrobe: A watch. It’s the best way to pull a look together.
Favorite places to shop: Abercrombie brands (discount!), G-star, Rugby, Zara
What he’s wearing:
Shirt: Cockpit USA
Watch: Citizen Skyhawk Ecodrive

Why we love his look: It’s not easy to make the classic, all-American look appear anew—but there was something about Dinesh’s style, perhaps a sense of casual refinement, that made us do a double take. His bright, colorful plaid shirt, and canary pants brings the traditional look to life, proving that the preppy look most certainly has its certain charm—when done right.
