Street View is a fashion series in which Isa Giallorenzo spotlights some of the coolest styles seen in Chicago.

By day, Julius Adorsu Jr. is a supervisor at a major retailer’s tire center. He spends his offhours elevating secondhand shopping to a science. On his personal style blog, Thrift Like a Gentleman, he offers advice on “dressing well without breaking the bank.” 

“Biggest tip, I’d say, is be patient, persistent, and consistent,” he says. “It takes time to find great deals that may be worth it to you. There will be months where you strike out and days you hit fashionable home runs.”
