Seven Questions for Roderick: 

1. What's your greatest tip for shopping at Jeremy's?

This is a tip for anyone that finds a store they love: make friends and get to know the sales associates and the stylists -- especially at Jeremy's! They see what is on the floor on the daily and know all the great finds, and all the great brands you might be looking for.

Also, this may be obvious, but we are stepping up our social media platforms so sign up and follow us online to get the inside info on the ridiculous sales.

2. What's your drink of choice?

Non-alcoholic: coconut water without pulp. Alcoholic: whiskey ginger, unless it's really good whiskey -- then I would have it straight, with three ice cubes. 

3. I like a man in...

Whatever makes him feel confident. 

4. What's your personal style philosophy? 

I like the idea of opposites when it comes to dressing. Everyone always says you can tell what a person is like from their shoes. Nice shoes mean something positive and dirty shoes mean whatever, but I like the idea of jacked up shoes with a dressy outfit. You're walking and living in them -- your shoes should look like they've been worn. 

5. What's your scent?

I used to wear Acqua di Gio before I started smelling like every other dude in the world! I still love the smell of that cologne though, but I'm pretty au naturel these days. 

6. What's always in your bag?

Sunnies, 5 quarters, 1 dime, 2 nickels and 4 pennies. Not sure why I take the same exact change everyday, but I do. 

7. What's your Bay Area Top 5?

-Dolores Park.

-Fog City News.

-Jeremy's Department Store.

-Zachary's Pizza (in Rockridge).

-Tie: Mission Chinese and Sui Generis.
