Dope Locals: Michael T.

Aware that my words probably won’t do him justice, I’ll let the photos do most of the talking.

Michael Thomas


Raleigh, NC

Creative writer/designer/artist/style icon/tailor/blogger/witty ball of positive energy

Fav Designer: Marc Jacobs

Describe your style: I like modern traditional pieces dressed down with a touch of grunge and accessories inspired by quirky Japanese street style.

Ultimate goal in life: When everything is said and done, I want to create a platform for up and coming artists and designers by owning galleries, boutiques, even publications like magazines to promote a new wave of talent.

Fashion Icon: who have effortless style, especially in a world where people look as if they’ve stepped straight out of H&M. James Franco, Bradley Cooper, Johnny Depp [the earlier the better with Johnny].

If you could only choose one, what country would you travel to and why: France, mostly because I want to see what people in France wear and how they interact with eachother…outside of what the French exchange students next door to me do.

If you could wear one brand of clothing for the rest of your life, what would it be: The Gap, because you can look good without looking like you’re taking yourself too seriously.
& yes, this is all of his original art.
He’s the most talented person I’ve met, and contrary to what his pictures may portray him to be, he’s hilarious. We’ve been coworkers for a year now, and we just get each other! I always support people of color in this industry, but he’s on a whole different level with the knowledge and passion he has for what he does. He’ll be moving in a few days and I’ll miss our daily bouts of laughter at work [usually ending in tears & mild asthma attacks] and our joint analyses of every interesting garment that comes into the store.
This is the beginning of a life-long friendship.
People come into your life for a reason and I truly believe we’ll work closely together once we really get our careers going in NY!
Keep an eye out for him. You’ll hear about him more soon enough.

  1. Evidently, I operate under no sort of humility.

    When I’m having a bad day, I come back to this post just so I can read some cool things about me that I forgot about myself.

  2. Reblogged this on [ProductMT] and commented:
    My friend at did a write-up about me some time ago.

    Sometimes we need a friend to remind us that underneath a mountain of homework and project outlines, half eaten bags of pretzels and B list comedies playing in the background, we are fascinating people.

    also…almost two years ago I was very skinny.
