XL’s Featured Tribe’s Men: Darnel Ghramm
1. What are your biggest fashion obstacles?
My biggest fashion obstacle is one I think most guys would agree with and it’s trying to find something dope as hell that fits right lol. There’s not a wide sell of retailers & brands to choose from. All my looks are pretty much pieced together. I love street style and I love a dapper look as well. So, my personal style brings them both together. Well dressed and smooth but with some bite is how I’d describe it.
2. Where are you from and what are biggest fashion trends in your city?
I’m from New Jersey, South Jersey specifically. It’s interesting because New Jersey is right next to Philadelphia and New York so there’s really no real trend, in my opinion. Everyone is pretty much doing their own thing & influences come from many different things. Which is the way it should be. Why follow trends when you can create your own lane.
3. What would you say is your biggest fashion miss?
Honestly I can’t think of one. The thing with fashion is like, who’s to say whats right and wrong? It’s like art. Just express yourself and own it. If you like it and and feels good, that’s all that matters.
4. What are some of your biggest style inspirations?
Some of my biggest style inspirations come from all around me. More importantly, my culture. I’m half Spanish and I listen to bachata & merengue. Romeo Santos style is always on point. I also like that Kanye | Jerry lorenzo high end street style. Like, I’m torn. I want the hipster GQ rock star vibe lol. That’s why I don’t like to try and categorize my style… I mix what I like, high and low.
