Whether it's casual or dressy, Brian Schisler loves to add some polish for his "sporty chic" style with a jacket. Not only will the Johns Hopkins University IT project manager wear one with a button-down shirt, as he was at Waterstone Bar & Grille, but he'll also pair a blazer with a T-shirt or a hoodie. "I like the layered look." On this particular night, the Canton resident went for a white Express shirt with his Rock & Republic relaxed-fit jeans from Nordstrom, topped off with a brown velvet Banana Republic blazer. His square toe Giorgio Brutini slip-ons were a Nordstrom purchase. But Schisler admits his real fashion weakness is jeans. "It runs in stages. I was hot on Sevens [for All Mankind] for a while. Then, it was Diesel. Now, it's Rock & Republic. I probably have about 40 pairs total."
