Sophomore finance major Billy Pekarsky and sophomore political science major P.J. Simonelli are sharp-dressed best friends and roommates, making the College their runway one day at a time.
Who is your style inspiration?
PJ: Ron Burgundy from “Anchorman.” He wears great burgundy suits, just like the one I have on.
Billy: My floormates, Zach Vasilenko and Billy Schwartz. They can pull off great looks with jean material.
Favorite piece in your wardrobe?
PJ: I like eclectic pieces of clothing, so probably any one of my unique Hawaiian shirts. I also like suits because people take me more seriously.
Billy: I like hat-wear. My go-to accessory is a bucket hat.
Where is your favorite place to shop?
PJ: Goodwill in Trenton.
How old were you when your mom stopped picking out your outfits and you started wearing your own creations?
Billy: The second grade. It was time to be a man.
PJ: She actually picked this out.
What is your style mantra?
PJ: “I hope people don’t give me weird looks today in this.”
Billy: “It’s fine, as long as PJ is wearing something weirder than I am.”
We have been noticing a lot of guys getting creative with their sock choices. Do you have a favorite pair or material you like to sport?
Billy: Argyle socks.
PJ: Definitely wool for the winter.
As roommates, do you inspire each other?
PJ: Yes. Billy and I both have an affinity for unique clothing. We egg each other on with bolder pieces. Right now we are wearing suits, but we definitely shake it up sometimes.
