Albert Hicks IV, Student

“Right now I’m really into World War II clothes.”


What do you know about Albert Hicks the first?
Not very much actually. But I weirdly think about him a lot. I think he was probably very tall—even though I’m really short.

That’s a lot of look you have there. Where do you clothes-shop?
eBay. I can’t even remember the last time I bought something at a store.

What are your eBay tricks?
Save your searches—like if you’re looking for Ralph Lauren Chelsea boots, create a saved search, and whenever a new one comes up, you’ll get an alert. It’s the best thing ever. Right now I’m really into World War II clothes.

I like that it’s a different silhouette, and also—I know this sounds cheesy—but I love wearing a piece of history, something that’s been passed down from generation to generation. I used to be really into pins—from any war.

What war had the best pins?
Anything in Russia, for sure.
