In his job as senior curator of American Arts for the Baltimore Museum of Art, David Park Curry knows a lot about how looks are created. "I look at colors and textures for a living. So, dressing is automatic for me." Curry isn't afraid of mixing things up when it comes to creating outfits for himself, which leads to a style that is "casual chic or madly eccentric...I might wear something very, very expensive with something very, very cheap; something bright one day, and something dull the next. I don't have a uniform." When we "glimpsed" the 64-year-old Mount Vernon resident at work, he was wearing a blue and white gingham Austin Reed shirt that he bought in London, a navy blue Saks Fifth Avenue blazer, and a pair of gray pinstripe Ermenegildo Zegna pants, also from Saks. He purchased his black woven leather slip-on shoes with tassels at a Cole Haan outlet. And his tiny gold Buddha lapel pin was a gift. He picked up his Amsterdam Sauer watch on a trip to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. And those clear-framed, blue-tinted round glasses are one of about 20 pairs that he's collected, most of which come from Virginia Burton, an optician in Georgetown.
