ASU Professor Andy Weed Doesn't Complicate His Clothes

Andie Flores
Andy Weed sits in his home.

What are you wearing right now?
Braces, pants, a shirt, a sweater. That's all there is. That's alphabetically sequenced.

What's the last item of clothing you bought?
Long underwear

Where do you usually shop?
I shop online, but I don't have one explicit store that I look at. I'm realizing more and more that I like to find material that isn't dyed. These pants are the color of lambs, and this shirt is the color of cotton.

Name five items every man should have in his closet.
1) Shirts
2) Pants
3) A belt
4) Braces
5) Shoes

It just depends on where you live. In the desert, you don't need that much. In Iceland, they dress like onions: They just layer.

What's one fashion trend you can't stand?
I have no idea about fashion trends. I'm more interested in clothing design and textile design.

Give us a childhood memory of you and clothes.
I loved my Montessori school uniform in Manhattan. I thought it was great: a sweater, wool pants, and a white shirt just like this one. They also had us wear a latchkey on a string. I was a latchkey kid but my mother insisted that I wasn't.

What is your one piece of fashion advice for Phoenix?
Be simple. Don't be complicated.
