JR Paterakis unabashedly loves fashion. The Hunt Valley resident is also not afraid to poke fun at himself about that. "I would call my style Miami Vice Chic," he says with a twinkle in his eye. We "glimpsed" the 53-year-old vice president in charge of marketing and sales for Schmidt Baking Company, Northeast Food and H&S Bakery having a drink at Tark's Grill in Green Spring Station. Paterakis looked ready for his close-up in a black, white and gray striped linen/cotton blend sports shirt he picked up in Milan, Italy. He bought his black silk flat-front Armani pants at Neiman Marcus. Paterakis loves to shop when he travels. He found his black leather Gucci belt in Naples, Fla., his black Rado watch in Switzerland, and his gold cross in Madrid. "It's decorated with olives. I'm Greek. So, that's why I got it." As far as his Tod's lace up shoes go - "I've been wearing this same shoe for 15 years. They are the most comfortable shoes on earth."
