Tuesday and Posey

• Who they are: Tuesday (left) and Posey (first names only, please!)

• What they’re wearing: On Tuesday, white glasses Sir Elton would covet, jewelry and clothing collected from various thrift shops. Asked if he has to go clothes-hunting every weekend, Tuesday replies, “Oh yeah. Then I cut s**t up to make it fit my body.” On Posey, a knit scarf and shirt from a thrift shop, a brown sweater he claims “I got from an old woman,” boots that are “military surplus; I got them from a guy for $2,” and a hand-tooled leather belt he reports “my grandfather made … in jail.”

• Why we love it: While Tuesday insists the duo usually dresses much more eccentrically, their casual secondhand-store savvy is readily apparent. Both guys know a good find when they see it, whether it’s glam glasses, a family heirloom belt with a story, or a vintage record player just purchased at Goodwill.
