Is your jacket on the "love" list? "Yeah. I heard it was a Southwest pilot's jacket. I'm trying to find some wings to put on it. It's from an Army-Navy surplus store in Aurora, for $8. Eight dollars for a weird jacket that nobody else has got. "I'm kind of going for a little bachelor look — but nobody's catching on." Other recent purchases you love? "I always find something at French Connection at Water Tower. Like these corduroy pants. I wear them like three times a week." Anything you've bought lately that you hate? "Well, my phone. I've got a BlackBerry that I bought from Verizon. I've gone through five phones in nine months. The screen keeps breaking."
