How would you define your style? "Simple and easy. Style's about balancing how you see yourself and how you want other people to see you. Everyone has some style hidden away somewhere, even if they hide it away in their fanny pack."

What do you find most important when selecting an outfit? "Comfort. People can read instantly if you're uneasy about your clothes. If you don't like wearing it, you know no one else will either. The right clothes, I think, tend to disappear and reveal you as a person. They're there to show you off, not the other way around."

Where do you look for inspiration? "Everywhere. Everyone. Everything. I steal what I can."

Why we love his look:
Tallman adds a dash of personality to his otherwise sophisticated look by pairing a well-tailored suit with a polka dot button-down and quirky red accessories.
