Dashiel Brahmann is the first person I’ve profiled on this site twice. If you take a peek at my last post of him, you’ll see the change his style has undergone; shooting him again was like profiling a new person. I found a kindred spirit in Dash whose sense of style seems to be an ongoing conversation in his head–I change my style every so often, and from the dark, faintly glamdrogynous aesthetic we both used to be into, we now both seem to favor a look that is more honest, natural, and masculine. He just started a clothing line called Looseleaf, a line completely composed of natural fibers, focusing on essential garments with a bit of a creative flair, casual pieces you can work or lounge in. Dash grew up three blocks from the beach and has always been involved in surf culture, which apparently, is a lot about personal style. His favorite surfers—people like Craig Anderson—are known for their smooth, graceful style. He says, “I want that to be the feeling that my clothes emote, effortlessness.”
Loose Leaf is available at Pilgrim Surf + Supply.
