Glimpsed at Work: Geoffrey Potts

Geoffrey Potts, 29, is all about a style that's "fashion forward and fitted -- with an edge." We couldn't disagree when we "glimpsed" him on the job as a hair stylist at Studio 921 Salon & Medi Day Spa. The Laurel resident started with a black cotton deep V-neck from American Apparel. "I love American Apparel." He added another fave, skinny jeans from the Guess store -- these in the gravel shade. "I'm obsessed with the way they fit. They're like Diesel, but half the price." That's where he also found his studded belt. The buckle came from a website, whose name he can't remember. He topped off the ensemble with a steel gray canvas double-breasted vest that he got at a designer's shop on Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles, where he used to live. Potts added black tooled leather ankle cowboy boots from the Aldo designer collection, a black leather cuff from H&M and another black leather and steel cuff that was given to him by his mother-in-law. "It was made in Thailand. It's supposed to be the same one Johnny Depp has." His wallet and chain came from another Melrose Avenue shop. "I like to stand out, but I don't want to go overboard. I want people to think, 'Wow, he's dressed sharp.' But, I don't want them to think I look like a member of George Clinton's band."
