Meet the pink rebel and the snazzy dresser


Revolutionary boy next door
Who: Justin Edwards
Age: 18
Works at: Blockbuster Video at Lemmon and McKinney Avenues.
Wallet contains: a pink debit card.
History buff: Muscle Mag International subscriber; "Inside the Third Reich: Memoirs of Albert Speer" rests on his bookshelf.
Motto: "Everyone should stand for something — even if they stand alone."

The fabulous accessorizer


Who: Todd DePue
Age: 36
Occupation: Women’s clothing appraiser and fashion expert at ReThreads for Men & Women.
Style icons: Duke and Duchess of Windsor, Marlene Dietrich, David Bowie and Andre3000.
Dos and don’ts: I don’t own a television, don’t have an e-mail address. I refuse to learn to cook and don’t own a single pot, pan, skillet or wok. However, I still think smoking cigarettes looks quite glamorous.
Guilt-free pleasure: Dollar stores.
If I were a rich man: I’d buy several Mini Coopers in assorted colors and hire a driver.
Free fashion advice: Dress with confidence and wit. It’s ok to wear something that’s funny. I think the orange socks I wore to the interview helped land my job.
